Eminem has announced his first live dates for 2013.
The Detroit rapper has been revealed as one of the headliners for twin music festivals in Reading and Leeds, taking place Aug. 23-25 in England. More performances are expected to be announced as Eminem rolls out his eighth studio album in 2013 -- which he tipped via a baseball cap he's selling via his web site.
Eminem's last album, the triple-platinum "Recovery," came out in 2010 and has sold more than seven million copies worldwide. He's recently been heard via rash of guest appearances on other artists' songs, including Rihanna's "Numb," P!nk's "Here Comes the Weekend," 50 Cent's "My Life" and Skylar Grey's "C'mon Let Me Ride."
Eminem also executive produced Grey's forthcoming album "Don't Look Down" and was an integral part of the all-star rap group Slaughterhouse's "Welcome To: Our House" set, which was released on his Shady Records label.
