AceShowbiz - Eminem is going to be back on the road to promote his latest album "Revival". After headlining a slew of festivals like Boston Calling Festival and Coachella in the United States, the Detroit rapper is scheduled to travel to Europe for a month.
Em will kick off the European tour on June 30 at Obos Oslo Sommertime Festival in Oslo, Norway. He will then hit the stage in Switzerland and Italy, before ending his tour with a two-night residency at the Twickenham Stadium in London. Tickets will go on sale to general public on Friday, February 2 at 09:00 A.M. GMT.
The London shows will be Em's first shows in the U.K. since headlining Reading & Leeds last summer, when he expressed his disdain for his mortal enemy Donald Trump. "So Reading, I'm not about to stand up here and use this f***ing stage as a platform to get all political and s**t, but this motherf***er Donald Trump -- I can't stand him," he said at the time.
"Revival" was released on December 15, 2017 and arrived atop U.K. album chart and ARIA album chart. It also became his eighth consecutive album to top Billboard 200 chart after racking up 267,000 album units. As a result, Em became the first musician to have eight consecutive chart entries to launch at No. 1. Additionally, it set the third-largest sales week of 2017 among hip-hop albums.
Despite the commercial success, the album received heavy criticism from music critics. For instance, Dan Weiss from Consequence of Sound called the 19-track set a "disastrous ninth studio album." Weiss said that the album "is the most pleasureless record he's ever made." Following that, Em responded to the negative reviews by releasing a remix of one of the tracks off the album, "Chloraseptic" featuring 2 Chainz and Phresher.
