Eminem has confirmed details of a live date at Ireland's Slane Castle for August 2013.

The news of the huge Irish date comes just days after it was confirmed that Eminem will headline the Reading & Leeds Festivals in 2013. Eminem will headline Slane Castle, Dublin on August 17. Tickets are on sale from 9am on Wednesday December 19, priced £65 plus booking fee.

Speaking about the booking, Lord Henry Mountcharles, who presides over the Slane estate, states: "In 2005 I said Eminem was a stunning artist. He is even more so today. I am thrilled he is going to play Slane." Lord Mountcharles added that there is no ill feeling between the estate and Eminem, despite claims that the rapper would never play there again after pulling out of a scheduled appearance in 2005.

Eminem is the first headliner to be announced for next summer's Reading and Leeds Festivals. He will play the Main Stage, joining a bill that includes Mercury Music Prize winners Alt-J , who will headline the NME/ Radio 1 tent.

Deftones, Sub Focus and Wiley's grime collective Boy Better Know are also on the 2013 line-up, with Deftones bringing their latest studio album 'Yo Noi Kan' to the festival's Main Stage whilst Sub Focus will headline the BBC Radio 1 Dance Stage.

Eminem previously confirmed plans to release a new studio album in 2013.
