Eminem to Headline 2024 Formula 1 U.S. Grand Prix Concert in Texas: ‘Dare Me to Drive?!’

Eminem rode around Detroit in a 1976 Oldsmobile Delta 88 throughout 8 Mile, but he’s gonna need some new wheels to keep up in Formula 1.

Slim Shady has been announced as one of the concert headliners alongside Sting when the 2024 Formula 1 U.S. Grand Prix comes to Austin, Texas in October. Em is slated to perform on night two come Oct. 19. Sting is the other artist hitting the Germania Insurance Super Stage.

“‘Dare me to drive?!’ #Formula1 Austin TX 10/19,” he wrote to Instagram while quoting lyrics to his early-career anthems like “My Name Is” and “Stan.”

Fans are excited to hear that Eminem will be returning to the capital of the Lone Star State. Day passes and general admission tickets are still available on Ticketmaster for $179 plus fees.

“Bros gonna rap faster than them cars,” one person wrote. Another fan is making the trip from north of the border. “Travelling from Toronto for this. Can’t miss,” they added.

By the time October’s race rolls around, Eminem’s anticipated The Death of Slim Shady (Coup De Grâce) will most likely have arrived. The Detroit legend has promised that his 12th studio album will be released this summer. He kicked off the LP’s rollout in May with the nostalgic “Houdini,” which gave Em his highest-charting single of the decade when it debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100.

The album will be Eminem’s first since 2020’s Music to Be Murdered By, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 and earned the rapper his 10th consecutive chart-topper.
