Support for legendary rap star Eminem’s fast approaching August date at Slane Castle has been announced, with EarlWolf (Odd Future rappers Tyler The Creator and Earl Sweatshirt), Shady Records artist Yelawolf, English hip-hop musician Plan B and Chicago newcomer Chance The Rapper set to join Marshall Mathers on the big stage at the annual Irish event.
The highly anticipated gig, announced back in December last year, marks the Detroit rappers return to an Irish stage following a headline performance at Oxegen 2011. Previously Mathers was the subject of controversy after cancelling a scheduled concert at Slane in 2005, due to ‘’exhaustion’’, later going on to enter drug rehabilitation and taking a lengthy break from the music scene.
Eminem is the second artist to play Slane in 2013 following Bon Jovi’s appearance in June alongside The Coronas, Ham Sandwich and Bressie.
