Eminem to stage first Latin American show with F1 Rocks™

GEO Eventos in partnership with Enterprise Entertainment have announced global rap superstar Eminem will headline F1 Rocks™ with LG in the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo on November 5, as part of the build-up to this season’s Brazilian Grand Prix. It will be Eminem’s first appearance in Latin America.

"This is something very special for the Brazilian audience,” said Pedro Assumpcao, CEO of Geo Eventos. “Eminem’s performance in Sao Paulo will show the importance of Brazil and F1 Rocks™ with LG in Sao Paulo as well as on the global arts scene.”

Rob Montague, Chairman of Enterprise Entertainment added: “It is indeed a privilege to work with our partners GEO Eventos and LG on this historic event. F1 Rocks™ with LG in Sao Paulo with Eminem is going to be an incredible event…I cannot wait.”

The multi-award winning American hip-hop star has sold in excess of 80 million albums worldwide, making him one of the best-selling artists in the world. His most recent recording, ‘Recovery’, which was released in June, has sold over four million copies and has topped both album and single charts in more than 40 countries.

“LG is very excited that we are associated with our second F1 Rocks™ with LG event in Sao Paulo this November,” said Andrew Barrett, VP Global Sponsorship LG Electronics. “Last year we rocked Singapore during the GP, and this year we will be bringing another star-studded line-up of the world’s best Formula One drivers and world class musicians to Brazil, featuring the first ever live appearance of Eminem in South America. Life sure is good when you can bring the best of both worlds to the same city on the same weekend.”

F1 Rocks™ will announce further acts ahead of the Brazilian event.
