EMINEM has pulled his entire European tour after being treated for “exhaustion”.

The Anger Management 3 Europe dates were due to start in September, with support at the shows including D-12, Obie Trice, Stat Quo, Lloyd Banks, Young Buck, Tony Yayo, Olivia and Flipsyde.

However, all the dates, including shows in the UK and Ireland have been pulled. A spokesperson said the rapper is suffering from “exhaustion, complicated by other medical issues”.

The shows are not expected to be rescheduled.

A UK spokesperson told NME.COM: “Eminem is disappointed he won’t be able to come over to see his UK fans, and it’s unfortunate he’s had to cancel.”

Earlier in the summer it was claimed that Eminem was even considering retiring from live performance after this tour, a claim which was subsequently denied.

Proof said Eminem wanted to concentrate on production from now on. He

told the Detroit Free Press that Eminem’s show at Slane Castle, Ireland on September 17 would be his last.

“Em has definitely got to the level where he feels like he’s accomplished everything he can accomplish in rap,” said

Proof.

“He wants to kick back and get into the producing thing. Why not bow out while you’re on top?”

The Anger Management dates are in support of Eminem’s current album ’Encore’.
