Eminem & Rihanna "The Monster Tour" Dates
Eminem and Rihanna announce a three-city "The Monster Tour."
Eminem and Rihanna have announced their three-city The Monster Tour, slated to kick off in August.
Eminem and Rihanna, who collaborated on 2013's "The Monster," a cut off Em's The Marshall Mathers LP 2, plan on stopping in three cities for this tour, New York, Los Angeles and Detroit.
“There are some shows coming up with Rihanna,” Eminem said in an interview XXL. “It’s a three-city tour: New York, L.A. and Detroit coming in August. The Monster Tour.”
"The moment I worked with him on 'Love the Way You Lie,' I wanted to work with him again, and we did 'Love the Way You Lie Part 2,'" Rihanna said at the time. "And then I wanted to work with him again. I just love working with Eminem. He’s just one of my favorite rappers, and his lyrics—he’s a true poet, and I enjoy that about him. For this song, I needed someone with not only his skill, but his personality. And I needed someone who really understands the perspective and the metaphor in the song of going numb and being numb to everything around and to say, 'Fuck you.' Eminem is definitely the perfect guy for that."
