Eminem’s new album – The Marshall Mathers LP 2 – has met enormous success and praise from critics and fans alike. Will Eminem follow up his new album with a US Tour in 2014? Despite the occasional appearance with Dr. Dre, Jay-Z, and other hip hop artists, Eminem hasn’t officially toured the United States since August 2011. The build up for his latest album could mean that he’s ready to get back on stage.

Eminem Tour 2014 – South Africa Tour Dates Announced
It’s official. Australia and New Zealand are not the only tour stops Eminem will be making to promote his new, outrageously successful album. Just announced – Eminem will also be playing two shows in South Africa. The performances, which will be in Cape Town on February 26th and Johannesburg on March 1st, will be Eminem’s fist visit to South Africa and the entire African continent. Will he finish up his world tour with something a little closer to home? Read through our suspicions, and let us know what you think in the comments!
Eminem Tour 2014 – Marshall Mathers LP 2 Leaked Online
We’re not saying that you should listen to Eminem’s leaked Marshall Mathers LP 2 album, but if you wanted to, you can download a torrent for it here, or listen to it on YouTube here. After the album was leaked (intentionally?), Eminem released this Public Service Announcement:
Eminem Tour 2014 – Eminem Tour Dates Announced with Action Bronson, Kendrick Lamar, J. Cole, and 360
Rumors have been swirling for a while that Eminem was set to announce a string of tour dates in Australia and New Zealand that included the Docklands Amphitheater in Melbourne, Australia, which he almost got kicked out of two years ago. While fans in the USA eagerly hoped that this tour would swing its way north, they are in no such luck. While Eminem has confirmed that he will be touring the land down under in 2014, he has yet to let us know if he will touring the United States as well.
Eminem recently announced that his 2014 Tour of Australia and New Zealand will occur alongside such hard-hitting hip-hop artists as Action Bronson, the always dissing Kendrick Lamar, RocNation’s J. Cole, and Yelawolf look-alike 360. Eminem tickets went on sale this morning at a minimum $155 (Australian). Will Kendrick and J. Cole be with Slim Shady when he (hopefully) tours the US in 2014? Read more below, and then let us know what you think in the comments.
Eminem Tour 2014 – More than Rumor?
“Let’s get back to straight hip hop and start it from scratch.” – Eminem, Berzerk
There’s a lot riding for Eminem on the success of The Marshall Mathers LP 2. It’s his first solo album since 2004 whose title does not reference his decade-long struggle with prescription drug abuse. Moreover, the album bills itself as a sequel to what has been called one of the greatest hip-hop albums of all time – The Marshall Mathers LP – which has sold more 21 million copies worldwide. If The Marshall Mathers LP 2 falls short of that, it will prove to all those post-rehab skeptics that Eminem should have quit the game with Encore, when he originally meant to. After the release of The Marshall mathers LP, Eminem took to the world-famous Up in Smoke Tour, which featured Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Nate Dogg, and Ice Cube. Such a hard-hitting crew certainly powered his album’s record-breaking sales. Can he repeat the same numbers without another tour that hits his most loyal fan base – the United States? Probably not.
Ten years later, Eminem’s newest music video for Berzerk is a clear call-back to the days of Slim Shady. But does this reincarnation signal that Eminem is ramping up to a new world tour? You be the judge:
UPDATE: The following quote was found in a USA Today article on Eminem’s to be released Rap God music video:
Rosenberg [Eminem's manager] said the Rap God music video is scheduled to come out in about two weeks. And while he won’t reveal much about touring plans or what’s coming next, he said Eminem fans should be excited.

????????? – Eminem announces US Tour to promote The Marshall Mathers LP 2
So, to sum up, Eminem has performed on Saturday Night Live, the YouTube Music Awards, is releasing music video after music video, and will be touring Australia and New Zealand in early 2014. Seriously, Eminem? If you’re not gearing up for a 2014 US tour, what are you doing?
Eminem Tour 2014 – Who will be touring with him?
The list of artists who will potentially be touring with Eminem in 2014 reads like a who’s who of hip-hop. Of course, Dr. Dre will be present at some point, and long-time friend and collaborator 50 Cent has confirmed that he worked with Eminem on The Marshall Mathers LP 2. If Eminem is reaching back to his roots, we can certainly expect a presence from his old bandmates, D12. What about Jay-Z? Lil Wayne? Snoop Dogg? Royce Da 5’9″? Kendrick Lamar? All likely. If not through the entire tour, then at least for a show here and there. More so if Eminem is returning to a style reminiscent his Up in Smoke Tour. The more important question: Will the Tupac hologram be touring with Eminem? Not likely, but one can always dream about the two of history’s greatest hip-hop stars sharing the stage. While since his last tour, Eminem has collaborated with Pink and B.O.B., the style of Berzerk, Survival, and Rap God suggest that he will not be looking to work with anyone who does not fit the old school hip-hop persona.
