Eminem Lil Wayne Announce 2012 World Tour, No Love for US?
UPDATE Apr. 10 2012:
We’re still waiting on Em and Weezy to release their 2012 summer tour dates, but we’re hoping the stars rubbing elbows at this years SXSW in Austin would help get the creative juices flowing. In addition to introducing his recent partnership with Mountain Dew and unveiling his clothing line, Lil Wayne also made time during his performance to offer to take home any women dissatisfied with their dates. Eminem finally made an appearance as a special guest of 50 Cent, who was there to perform his 2003 debut album Get Rich or Die Trying for the first time in its entirety.
Wow, we haven’t had this big of news in the live rap game since the Watch the Throne tour was announced way back in July. It is becoming a trend now for the tier 1 rappers to do massive joint tours. Eminem first did this with Jay-Z with the Home & Home Tour in 2010. I was at the first night of the Home & Home Tour at Yankee Stadium and it was amazing. I expect nothing less when Eminem joins the “best rapper alive”, Lil Wayne, for a world tour in 2012.
You’ve heard them together before on Drake’s Forever and then Weezy’s Drop The World and most recently, Eminem’s No Love from the Recovery Album. We can expect them to perform these tracks together, but beyond that it is only speculation. When I saw Em in NYC he played a perfect mixture of old and new tracks, pop and non-pop tracks.
Tour dates have not been announced yet, but sign-up below to stay in the know as soon as information is available.
Stay tuned for information on 2012 Eminem concert dates.

It is interesting to note that over the last two years, Eminem ticket prices have commanded a 50% higher avg. price on the secondary market compared to Lil Wayne Ticket Prices ($232.14 vs. $154.42). Though that doesn’t tell the whole story as Eminem has done very little shows and of the shows he did they were primarily huge stadium shows (i.e. The Home and Home Tour with Jay-Z) and music festivals like Kanrocksas.
