Eminem To Perform With Live Band For MLB Concerts

Eminem To Perform With Live Band For MLB Concerts

Eminem will be going the live band route for his four-date tour with Jay-Z.

Eminem will be performing with a live band for his much-discussed, four-show tour with Jay-Z, reports the Detroit Free Press.

While Eminem is certainly no stranger to using live instrumentation in his performances (the rapper had The Roots back him for his live rendition of “Lose Yourself” at the Grammy Awards).

“The production is very, very complicated, a lot of moving parts, because it’s only the four shows,” explained production director Dan Parise.

“This is their vision,” he said of the shows, two of which take place in Detroit’s Comerica Park, and another two in New York’s Yankee Stadium. “My job was to make it reality. But the concept, the idea, the messages they’re trying to get across — it’s all theirs.”

UPDATE: B.o.B. has been added as an opening act for the Detroit show on September 2. B.o.B. and Eminem collaborated on “Airplanes Pt. 2” from the Georgia emcee’s debut album, The Adventures of Bobby Ray.
