The rapper also wore a ‘Fack Trump’ t-shirt during the set. He paused in-between songs to tell the crowd, “Scotland, you might have to be our new home because right now shit ain’t going so well in the States. I just want to take this moment right now to say motherfuck Donald Trump!” See that clip below.
The 35,000 strong crowd were faced with heavy downpour, as Eminem played classic tracks ‘Stan’, ‘My Name Is’ and ‘Without Me’. He also played ‘Soldier’ for the first time since 2003 and included covers of Drake’s ‘Forever,’ B.O.B’s ‘Airplanes Part II’ and ‘The Hills (Remix)’ by The Weeknd.

Eminem later took to Twitter to thank fans for the show.
The rapper headlines Reading and Leeds festival this weekend (Aug 25 – 27). This will be Eminem’s third time headlining the festival, having topped the bill previously in 2001 and most recently in 2013.
“Eminem returning to Reading and Leeds is beyond exciting,” said R&L boss Melvin Benn. “His 2013 headline performance was incredible and I can’t want to have him back. In addition to our third and final headliner – joining Kasabian and Muse – we’ve announced over 70 additional acts to this year’s line up – it’s looking stronger than ever.”
