It was going to be a history-making show from the second it was scheduled, as Eminem’s July 11 show at Wembley Stadium was the first time ever that a rapper headlined the historic venue. Although, as the Guardian points out, it was so only because Hyde Park deemed his act too offensive for a summer garden show.
Whatever the reason, a new precedent was set but that alone was not enough to impress the London Stans who had not seen Eminem perform in their city since 2001. And so, Eminem brought out his longtime producer Dr. Dre to perform a song.
Dre came out at just before the two-minute mark of the video above to perform a medley of hits, including, “Still D.R.E.,” “Nuthin’ But a ‘G’ Thang,” “Forgot About Dre” and “The Next Episode.”
Eminem played a second night at Wembley Stadium on July 12. The Monster Tour, which Eminem and Rihanna will co-headline, kicks off on Aug. 7 in Los Angeles. The tour will only come to three U.S. cities but due to popular demand, second shows have been added.
