NME reports that Eminem performed at the Leeds Festival 2013 last night and brought out two guests on the Main Stage.
He appeared on stage at 9:35 PM, fifteen minutes late. A large white curtain was in front of hte stage, and it dropped to reveal a full band with guitarists, keyboard players and two drummers. He opened with his new single "Survival" while wearing a white vest, white hoodie and knee-length shorts. He continued with more songs, and ended "Kill You" with a bang and flash of white light.
Before "White America", he said: "This next song I wrote when I was thinking about... America!"
He then performed "White America". His hype man, Mr. Porter, then asked the audience how many had The Slim Shady LP, along with all of his other albums. He added: "If you've got 'Recovery' then I know you're going to know this song right here." Eminem then performed "No Love". He then said: "This is one of the reasons I like pissing people off. Because I'm a criminal."
He performed "Criminal" and was joined by Royce Da 5'9". Emienm then switched to a black t-shirt and black cap and the two performed "Fast Lane" as Bad Meets Evil, followed by "Lighters". They also performed the B.o.B song "Airplanes", which Eminem guested on.
Dido then appeared to perform her part on "Stan". While Eminem rapped the line about a fan having his name tattooed on his chest, the camera cut to a fan who had the same thing on his own chest. The two then hugged after the song.
After a version of "Love With Way You Lie" (with an on stage singer recreating Rihanna's part), he then performed a medley of early songs. He said: "How many people here tonight are fucked up. Honestly you know my story, since I can't do that shit any more. But can I ask you a question? Can I take you back to when I used to get fucked up?"
The medley included "My Name Is", "The Real Slim Shady" and "Without Me" and ended with a gunshot sound. "Not Afraid" closed out the show and "Lose Yourself" was the encore.
Here is his set list...
'Won't Back Down'
'Don't Give A Fuck'
'Cleaning Out My Closet'
'The Way I Am'
'Sing for the Moment'
'Forever' (Eminem's verse only)
''Till I Collapse'
'Love The Way You Lie'
'My Name Is' / 'Real Slim Shady' / 'Without Me' (Medley)
