The superstar rapper gets on a boat in London - hope he wears a sailor suit...

EMINEM is to play on a boat on the RIVER THAMES in LONDON tonight (November 19), NME.COM can reveal.

As we revealed earlier in the week, the rapper arrives in the UK today following an appearance at last night’s MTV Europe Music Awards in Rome.

In addition to a ‘secret’ gig on Saturday night, the superstar rapper will appear by HMS Belfast tonight where he’ll be recording two songs for ‘Top Of The Pops’.

The recording is likely to start around 6pm, although large crowds are expected to try to see the performance, and fans should arrive by 5pm, a spokesperson for the rapper told NME.COM.

Eminem’s current album ’Encore’ is at the top of the charts in both the US and the UK.
