The inaugural Anger Management Tour was founded and started in the fall of 2000 by Limp Bizkit, Papa Roach, and after the release of The Marshall Mathers LP, Eminem. Originally targeted at both rap and rock fans, the first "Anger Management" outing took place in 2000. In the process of starting the large tour, Eminem wanted to include Nine Inch Nails into the list of artists, but Marilyn Manson joining the tour would raise the issues between him and Trent Reznor. Eminem decided to not ask Reznor to join the tour due to the friendship he has with Manson. Eminem also came up with the name for the tour, being quoted in Rolling Stone saying "It's the perfect name for a tour like this, because most of the music featured in the tour is about anger, frustration, and the bullshit of our lives and the fans loving every minute of it. It's the blend of hardcore rap, industrial metal, and alternative metal that gives it the anger management feel, literally."
In the first tour, most of the concerts were extremely long, due to the number of artists that were chosen to headline the massive tour. Many of the concerts were praised for the production value and how each artist played like it was their own tour. Many critics agreed that one of the great things about the concerts were that they felt like they were made up of mini concerts.
The second tour took place in the summer of 2002. Eminem told LAUNCH, "It's basically the same thing that it was the last Anger Management Tour without Limp Bizkit... Papa Roach are still cool though." These concerts on the second tour were infamously just as long as the first time around, which in turn led to a controversial incident during a European Leg of the tour. During a stop in Milton Keynes, UK, fans grew restless and agitated at the prolonged 'stage changeovers' between artists and proceeded to throw bottles of liquid (liquor, water, and urine) at the stage. It is thought one of these bottles of liquid hit rapper XZibit during his set, causing him to leave the stage having suffered a broken jaw.
The bottle throwing incident in Milton Keynes was referenced by Eminem and D12 in a song titled 'American Psycho 2', in which Em retorts 'go find out who did that shit to XZibit, fill up a whole liquor bottle of p*** and shatter his f****** face'
The third tour took place in the summer of 2005. 50 Cent missed the tour's first two stops because of a scheduling conflict; he was tied up shooting his film debut. Ludacris filled in on those dates. The European part of the tour was cut short due to the exhaustion of tour founder Eminem and his addiction to sleeping pills.
