Eminem concert chronology

The Recovery Tour was a series of European concerts by American rapper Eminem, in support of his 2010 album Recovery as well as his 2009 album Relapse. Instead of widely touring the album, Eminem took the tour to three European festivals, performing to over 200,000 people over three nights. In November 2010, Eminem headlined the F1 Rocks 2010 in São Paulo. In the following year, another eight shows on festivals in North America and Europe were announced. The tour was also extended to 3 stadium shows in Australia that took place in December 2011. They were his first Australian shows since 2001.

Background[edit]

Eminem had widely before the release of Relapse stated that he would not tour the album, due to his daughter, Hailie, not liking him being away from home.[1] However, on 23 February 2010, it was announced that Eminem would return to the live stage by headlining three major European festivals - T in the Park 2010 in Scotland, Oxegen 2010 in Ireland and Openair Festival in Frauenfeld, Switzerland. Eminem's website quoted him as saying:

"I’m excited to get back to Europe to rock some shows. The crowds there are always big, crazy and dedicated…it’s going to be great to feel that energy again." [2]

The official press release also revealed that Eminem would be joined by D12 on each of the dates. Another festival – the F1 Rocks 2010 – was added to the tour in fall of 2010.
