It’s official: Eminem and Rihanna will be teaming up to go on tour this summer together and wow audiences on a co-headlining tour known as “The Monster Tour.” The two superstars announced that they would be playing together on March 19th, and even leaked a couple specifics about the biggest, most exciting stops on the three stop tour.
The three stop tour
On August 7th, Eminem and Rihanna will stop into the world famous Rose Bowl just outside of Los Angeles which holds almost one hundred thousand people and then they will jet across the country to rock New York City’s MetLife Stadium just a week later, where the 2014 Super Bowl was held.
The other date will be in Eminem’s hometown of Detroit. There is no word on if they will swoop through Rihanna’s home country of Barbados, but it’s doubtful.
The two superstars have already partnered together on “Love the Way You Lie” and clearly have a creative rapport. Eminem finally confirmed in an interview with XXL that he and the Vogue cover star would be taking their act on the road.
After the Eminem announcement, the word was on the street and the buzz spread quickly. On March 22nd, Rihanna promoted the upcoming tour with the help of Teen Mom star Jenelle Evans.
This was an amusing nod to the 2012 viral video in which Evans told her lawyer that she couldn’t go to jail because she was going to a Ke$ha concert.
The announcement of “The Monster Tour” this summer is basically the same clip, with a tweak at the end, as Evans says “Rihanna” in a booming voice, instead of “Ke$ha.”
This video was used to announce the tour to her 34 million plus Twitter followers, garnering a lot more attention than Eminem’s mention of the shows in XXL a week or so prior.
Double the shows
Due to the overwhelming response after the Rihanna announcement via Twitter, the tickets sold out immediately, prompting promoters to add a second show to each of the stops on the tour.
In other words, there will be two shows at the Rose Bowl on August 6th and August 7th, two shows at MetLife Stadium in New York City on August 16th and August 17th and two shows in Detroit on August 22nd and August 23rd. These newest shows were announced via Facebook on a page created especially for the Monster Tour.
In other words, this is what a lot of huge fans of these world famous acts will be doing throughout August, so if you’re one of them, save up. Tickets and travel, among everything you will need for this type of once in a lifetime summer concert, won’t be cheap.
