Eminem tickets to concerts and performances have been selling out since the day his first album was released. The rapper, actor, songwriter, and record producer is a threat in multiple areas of the entertainment industry and his influence can be seen everywhere. Eminem created not only best-selling albums, but a clothing line, a new era of hip hop, and so much more. That’s why tickets to Eminem concerts sell out so often. The rapper typically brings some of his other signed artists – most notably 50 Cents – to many of his performances. Not only that, but the energy and visual aesthetics make tickets for Eminem concerts much sought-after by hip hop fans.
Born Marshall Mathers III in Missouri, Eminem spent his childhood and part of his adulthood in Warren, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. Before Eminem tickets were even sold, the young Mathers was listening and idolizing rappers like Ice-T, Beastie Boys, and other old school hip hop giants. By the time he was 14, Eminem was already performing amateur raps, looking toward the day when he would sell out tickets to Eminem concerts. Although he is most famously known for his first big, mainstream album, The Slim Shady EP, that was not his actual debut album. Infinite, the name of his debut album released in 1996, was Eminem’s attempt at rapping like other artists already in entertainment such as Nas.
It was his freestyle skills are what eventually led the high sale of tickets for Eminem performances. Having won several freestyle performer awards from Wake Up Show and Rap Olympics, Eminem was establishing himself as a bona fide rapper while also separating himself from other artists in the industry. In 1998, The Slim Shady EP was finally released and showcased the talent that Eminem had always had but that the world hadn’t seen yet. Eminem tickets immediately sold out to concerts. Fans wanted to hear “Guilty Conscience” and “97 Bonnie and Clyde” and a host of other hits.
That was just the start. Tickets to Eminem concerts continued to sell out after the release of albums like The Marshall Mathers LP, The Eminem Show, and more. He took a long hiatus during which Eminem studied the music industry. He returned in 2009 with Relapse, spurring again the sellout shows and tickets for Eminem concerts.
