Eminem Makes Bonnaroo Debut [Video]


Following performances from Lil Wayne, Big Boi, and Wiz Khalifa, Eminem capped off a hip-hop-heavy lineup at Bonnaroo with his debut appearance at the festival in Manchester, Tennessee. Invading the What Stage to the tune of “Won’t Back Down,” Slim Shady ran through old and new material, dressed casually in camouflage shorts, a Bad Meets Evil tee, hoodie, and black hat.

“It’s been a minute since I been to the South. Did y’all miss us or what?” Em asked sweaty festival-goers before performing his Lil Wayne-assisted single “No Love” off last year’s Recovery. “When I say Wayne, ya’ll say Weezy!” he chanted, but the Young Money captain, who played hours earlier, did not appear.

He did, however, trade verses with fellow Detroit MC Royce Da 5’9” during a Bad Meets Evil set that included their Bruno Mars-assisted song “Lighters” as lighters and cell phones ignited the night sky, finishing with an encore of “Lose Yourself.”
