Eminem is heading to Down Under next year for his "Rapture" tour. The Detroit MC is set to hit the stages at several arenas in Australia and New Zealand with fellow rappers Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole.

The 4-date trek will kick off at Western Springs Stadium in Auckland, New Zealand on February 15. The rappers will then visit Melbourne's Etihad Stadium on February 19 and Brisbane's Suncorp Stadium on February 20, before wrapping up the tour at ANZ Stadium in Sydney on February 22.

For the Auckland date, the rappers will be joined by guest star David Dallas. The New Zealand rapper is excited to join Eminem's tour, telling Billboard, "I'm pretty stoked. Eminem has generations of fans in New Zealand. He's never been here, so it's going to be huge."
