Eminem and Jay-Z to Perform at Stadium Shows in Detroit and NYC This Summer

Two of hip-hop's biggest and most bankable stars, Eminem and Jay-Z, will wrap up their summers with two blockbuster stadium shows in each star's hometown. The pair will co-headline Detroit's Comerica Park on September 2 and New York's Yankee Stadium on September 13. Eminem and Jay-Z announced the news together earlier this week at the Yankees vs. Tigers baseball game at Comerica Park. "This is a once in a lifetime set of shows, and I know we're both really going to bring it to our hometowns," said Eminem, whose new single "Not Afraid" is currently exploding. "The fans are going to love this -- and so am I. It's gonna be historic."
These shows mark a bit of a return for Em, who headlined a show was at the New Orleans Voodoo Music Experience in October 2009. These gigs will offer a rare glimpse of a full Em set.
"I've always hoped that hip-hop could play any stadium like other genres of music," said Jay-Z. "How perfect is it that Eminem and I get to play our hometowns and show how far the live rap experience has come?"
The on-sale dates will be announced shortly.
Do you think Em and Jay will do a duet? Will Beyonce come out and sing?
