There are few musicians or musical groups that have proven more controversial than Eminem. From a cultural standpoint, Eminem was the first white male to succeed in the hip-hop and rap genres of music. This success alone was enough to raise questions about his music and his personality. From a musical standpoint, his lyrics and themes proved to be as controversial as any heard during the past several decades. His incredible talents and controversial lyrics have helped sell millions of Eminem tickets since his career began in 1990.
Despite the controversy surrounding him, Eminem has become one of the most famous (and successful) musicians in recent memory. The proof of his success can be found in the growth of his career and the solid sales for his albums over the course of his career. Since the beginning of the Nielsen Soundscan era, Eminem ranks second in the field of male artists in terms of album sales, sixth in terms of overall artists for album sales, and ranks atop the field of hip-hop artists. As of June 2014, Eminem has sold a total of 45 million albums and 31 million digital singles.
Eminem tickets were not always such a popular item among America's youth. Following a rough childhood, which often features as a central theme in his music, Eminem garnered attention early in his career as a member of the group D12. It wasn't until the release of his second album, The Slim Shady LP, that his solo career began to come to light in mainstream America. He followed up the success of his second album with the release of The Marshall Mathers LP in 2000 and The Eminem Show in 2002, both of which earned US Diamond certification for sales.
Eminem earned massive critical and commercial acclaim for these three albums, winning the Best Rap Album Grammy Award for all three. In doing so, he became the first artist to win a Grammy Award for three consecutive albums. Following the release of his fifth album in 2004 (Encore), fans of Eminem tickets had to deal with being separated from their favorite musician. Eminem went on a hiatus for several years following the conclusion of the Anger Management Tour in 2005.
He would not release another album or sell more Eminem tickets for concert events until 2010. Eminem released his sixth and seventh albums (Relapse, Recovery) in 2009 and 2010. He hit the road for two different tours in 2010 in support of these albums. The first Eminem tickets to go on sale for five years were sold first for the Home & Home Tour in 2010, and then for The Recovery Tour, which ran from 2010 to 2012.
Currently, fans can purchase Eminem tickets for The Monster Tour with Rihanna, as well as individual events across the country featuring Eminem. The Monster Tour has dates remaining in New Jersey, California, and Michigan. There are also individual dates for Eminem scheduled in Canada, Atlanta, GA, and Austin, TX.
