Eminem and Rihanna will perform at this year's MTV Movie Awards.

The pair will play their song, 'The Monster', taken from Eminem's 2013 album 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2', for the first time at this year's MTV Movie Awards, which will be hosted by Conan O'Brien on April 13 at Los Angeles' Nokia Theatre. Zedd and Ellie Goulding are also set to perform at the event.

The duo first teamed up on the 2010 song 'Love The Way You Lie' and will play a series of huge US shows this summer.

The tour will begin with two at Pasadena's Rose Bowl on August 7/8 with further shows in New York and Detroit scheduled for later in the same month. It is not yet known if the tour will extend to further cities on the US or abroad.

Meanwhile, Eminem recently revealed he came close to writing a rap in which he attacked Kanye West, Lil Wayne and Drake. The Detroit rapper opened up about how other musicians "killing it" between his 'Encore' and 'Relapse' albums made him feel insecure about himself and his own music.
