Eminem is invading London this summer. The Shady Records MC announces he will be performing a special concert at the famous Wembley Stadium on July 11. Along with special guests, the show will mark the first time a rapper has headlined a show at the venue. On Tuesday afternoon, the “Rap God” called into BBC Radio 1 to reveal the news with Zane Lowe, speak on preparing for the 90,000-plus stadium, performing on more a regular basis, finishing up Slaughterhouse and Yelawolf’s new albums, and the new battle rap show, Total Slaughter.

After the one-off show in London, Eminem will head back to the U.S. for “The Monster” tour with Rihanna. Tickets for the Wembley Stadium show go on sale this Friday, May 9 at 9 a.m.

UPDATE: After selling out, Eminem has added a second show on July 12. Check out the flyer below, as tickets can be purchased here.

UPDATE #2: Tyler, The Creator jumped on Emimem’s Instagram to announce that he and the rest of Odd Future will be opening for Em at Wembley.
