Eminem was joined by Dr Dre for a rare performance during an explosive gig at Wembley Stadium last night (11.07.14).
The 'Berzerk' rapper took to the stage after being banned from Hyde Park because of the "explicit lyrics" in his songs and became the first rapper to headline a gig at the venue in north London connected by EE- playing to 80,000 fans - who went wild when he collaborated with mega star Dre.
The rappers performed a number of hits including Forgot About Dre and the 90-minute set was crammed full of fan favourites, with a medley of 'Love The Way You Lie' and 'Stan' being one of the highlights on the night.
Wearing a t-shirt with a giant Union Jack mask emblazoned on the front, Eminem was glad to be back in London, headlining a gig in the UK for the first time in 13 years.
He told the audience: "Hold on, let me take a minute to look at this God damn crowd, holy sh*t! This is why I love London. Y'all so angry."
There was plenty of swearing throughout the concert and some fans complained about the speaker system as they struggled to hear a lot of what Eminem was saying in between songs. But he still proved that at 41, he's one of the world's best live performers.
Eminem stood against a backdrop of a boombox and fans lapped up hit after hit with the set list including 'The Way I Am', 'Rap God', 'My Name Is', 'The Real Slim Shady' and 'Without Me'.
Despite rumours, Rihanna and Dido were absent for duets of Love The Way You Lie and Stan but Eminem showed he didn't need any help to entertain the crowd.
"God damn, we missed you," he told them, as he ran about the stage backed by a full band.
There were plenty of explosions, gun shot sound effects and the encore, Lose Yourself, sent the audience into a frenzy.
The rapper will perform another sold out concert at the venue tonight (12.07.14).
