Eminem at V Festival – full gig report and setlist

Vibe: Steely and determined. Eminem’s back and he’s razor-sharp baby after the disappointment of ‘Relapse’, and he’s out to prove it with a fiercely disciplined set.


Best bit: A tie between ‘Kill You’’s gleeful nursery-rhyme psychosis, and the always-inspirational ‘Lose Yourself’, delivered as the encore.

Low point: ‘I Need A Doctor’, which is frankly dreadful with or without Dre’s medical attention.

Banter: Em shouts out to all the people who’ve had ‘beef with their parents’, been in ‘dysfunctional relationships’ and ‘dedicated hip hop fans’.


Verdict: You’re kidding, right? Eminem absolutely killed it, son.

Verdict: 9/10
