Lil Wayne and Eminem to Perform Joint Concert in Australia

Lil Wayne and Eminem to Perform Joint Concert in Australia

The rap titans join forces Down Under.

Published September 6, 2011

Eminem and Lil Wayne each command two of the largest fan bases in hip hop, so what would happen if the two stars were to join forces under one roof? One lucky audience in Australia will find out later this year, when Weezy and Shady are scheduled to host a one-time-only joint concert event.

The two sought-after performers will play for a reported six-hours at Australia's Etihad stadium in Melbourne, MTV News reports. The show is currently scheduled for one night only on December 1.

While Lil Wayne has made a name for himself as one of hip hop's most profitable and prolific touring artists with his I Am Music tours. Eminem has been more road-shy in recent years. The Detroit superstar has taken to performing at these sort of one-off special engagements, which have previously included a pricey appearance at the UK's V Festival last month and his Home & Home shows with Jay-Z last year.

Em and Wayne last appeared together on the single "No Love," from last year's Recovery.
