Continuing a surge in concert bookings at Aloha Stadium, rapper Eminem will perform at the venue on Feb. 15.
The date is as yet the only American show announced by Eminem in 2019. He is scheduled for five concerts across Australia and New Zealand in February and March in what is dubbed the “Rapture Tour.”
Eminem’s latest album, “Kamikaze,” dropped in August and became his ninth to hit No. 1, including the “The Marshall Mathers LP” and “The Eminem Show,” both of which are certified diamond by the Recording Industry Association of America for 10 million in sales. He has total certified U.S. album sales of 45 million.
Born Marshall Mathers, Eminem also has five No. 1 singles to his credit, including “Lose Yourself” (from his semi-autobiographical film “8 Mile,” which Eminem stars in), “Not Afraid” and two collaborations with pop singer Rihanna, “Love the Way You Lie” and “The Monster.”
Two singles from “Kamikaze” have hit Billboard’s top 10 — “Killshot” and “Lucky You,” a collaboration with Joyner Lucas.
