Eminem and Rihanna are hitting the road: The frequent collaborators have announced dates for a three-city U.S. concert tour, slated to kick off in August. Em ‘n Ri will bring their show — titled The Monster Tour — to New York City, Los Angeles and the hip-hopster’s troubled hometown of Detroit.
“This August, Eminem and Rihanna will be co-headlining a series of stadium shows for The Monster Tour. The tour will kick off in Los Angeles on Thursday, August 7 at the Rose Bowl with shows then lined up in New York City’s Metlife Stadium on Saturday, August 16 and Detroit’s Comerica Park on Friday, August 22.”
The rapper posted this Instagram sneak peek of a recent rehearsal with RiRi.
The worlds of pop and rap first collided when Rihanna guest-starred on Eminem’s 2010 single “Love the Way You Lie.” They teamed up a second time for the follow-up track, “Love the Way You Lie Part 2.” The stars’ most recent collabo came with the 2013 smash “The Monster” — which was featured on Em’s The Marshall Mathers LP II.
