Eminem will treat the city of Detroit to a special performance on Wednesday (June 29) at the ‘Rockin the Rooftop,’ a large fundraising event that is known for its display of fireworks.
Eminem was specifically sought out by Detroit’s ‘Hip-Hop Mayor,’ Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick to perform at the event, which is part of the International Freedom Festival.
"The fireworks are a big part of summertime in Detroit, and I want to support them and the Mayor," Eminem said. "I've come downtown to watch them since I was a kid, and I'll get involved in something that helps the city any way I can."
The concert is one of the largest fundraising events for the city and will take place on the roof of a downtown Detroit parking garage.
Eminem agreed to perform one song and organizers hope to sell over 2,000 tickets at $175 per person.
