Eminem set for ‘a few’ live shows in 2011

Rapper's manager says he will be concentrating on record label

Eminem‘s manager has said that the rapper has plans to play live in 2011 – but only at “a few” gigs.

He played a series of stadium and festival shows last year and three full gigs in 2009, but before that hadn’t played live since 2005. His manager Paul Rosenberg told Billboard that a similar hiatus was not on the cards now.

Although he didn’t confirm any live dates, when asked about his client’s gigging plans he said: “You’ll be able to see [Eminem] at a few places this year.”

But Rosenberg suggested that, rather than making gigging his priority, the rapper would be concentrating on his own record label in 2011 by “rebuilding Shady Records and making that brand as strong as we can”.

Eminem was last seen appearing as a claymation character in an advert broadcast at the Super Bowl break on Sunday (February 6). Scroll down and click below to watch it.

Next Sunday (13) he is due to attend the Grammy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles. He is up for 10 awards, including Album Of The Year for ‘Recovery’.
