Rap god Eminem opened his sold-out tour of Australia last night, performing in front 46,000 turnt fans at Brisbane’s QSAC stadium.
It was the first in a run of four monster Rapture stadium dates across the nation, which continues in Sydney tomorrow evening, and Slim Shady marked the occasion by busting out a marathon 32 song set.
The epic performance spanned faves from his latest album, 2018’s Kamikaze (‘Greatest’, ‘Fall’, ‘Lucky You’) all the way back to 1999’s The Slim Shady LP (‘My Name Is’).
Yep folks, he played ‘Stan’, with vocalist Skylar Grey stepping up to play the role of Dido, as well as Beyonce in ‘Walk On Water’ and Rihanna in ‘Love The Way You Lie’ and ‘The Monster’.
He busted out covers of Drake, Nikki Minaj and support act Royce da 5′9″, collaborating live with both Royce and fellow support act Boogie.
Unsurprisingly, he saved ‘Lose Yourself’ til the encore.
This is absolutely nuts! But what else would you expect from Shady? Check out Em’s full 32-song setlist from Brissie below, and we’ll wait and see if he switches anything up on his remaining Aussie tour dates.
