I'm debating the Detroit show, it's going to cost more to get a good floor seat, and I know it :filenails: I also enjoy Em, but not so micuh I want to see him live, these co-billed acts usually have one artist you want to see more than the other, I want to see Rihanna, fuck what  ya heard :coffee:

I don't hate it.. I just don't think it it should have been a single... The video is good despite the song produced by Jermaine Dupri :umm: Yes.. You know people who like the song.. but not enough for it to go gold during the digital era

 

Five. Days Go By, Rollwithcu, Take Care, Enjoy, & With U > Discipline 

Well guaranteed if she promoted RWU it would've done way better. I will agree those 5 songs are my faves from that album. I actually love "Days Go By". Something magical about that song and the music. I just played the song as i'm typing this lol. I think it's the arrangements and instruments used. It sounds like a hear a flute, harp, a xylophone, and the way her vocals sound during the break. Yes!!!

Eh that price is a bitch, but he's my fave male rapper and she's my fave female artist of the 2010-gen so if I could I'd pay it, but sadly Im not available for any of the tour dates, but it's the only tour of the summer worth my time sadly.

And the truth from reliable sources (well more reliable than selected tweets from a massively sold out show anyway)

Eminem & Rihanna's Monster Tour Roars to Life at Rose Bowl: Concert Review

eminem-rihanna-monster-tour-2014-billboa

Eminem & Rihanna's long-awaited Monster tour, which kicked off Aug. 7 in Los Angeles at a sold-out Rose Bowl, is billed as a co-headlining tour between the two music superstars, and the pair treated the show as if they were equals, starting and ending together. However, sharing the stage with Eminem is like playing one-on-one with LeBron James or acting with Daniel Day-Lewis. Eminem is, as he reminded everyone last weekend at Lollapalooza, one of the half dozen most compelling performers in music today.

That was evident from the outset of the show, which opens with a short Silence of the Lambs-inspired film that finds Sopranos star Michael Imperioli walking Rihanna down a San Quentin prison hall. As she saunters into a cell, just the back of Eminem’s head and trademark blonde hair appeared on the screen and the Rose Bowl crowd lost their collective minds.

Keeping with the motif in the opening “Numb,” Rihanna started the show on her own, only to have a platform rise on the side of the stage where Eminem, strapped to a stretcher a la Hannibal Lecter, emerged mid-song. Like the Jay-Zand Beyonce On The Run tour (both shows hit the Rose Bowl this week, coincidently) there is a fair amount of interaction between the two headliners.

Following the robust ‘Numb,” the duo shared the stage for “No Love (Don’t Hurt Me)” and “Run This Town,” then again a few songs later for “Won’t Back Down.” There was a clear chemistry between them, especially on the between-song banter where Rihanna kept right up with Eminem. After he encouraged everyone to “Make Rihanna feel at home,” she answered right back, “Make some noise for this white motherfucker,” getting a lot of applause and laughs.

Following “Won’t Back Down,” the Rihanna portion of the night, which lasted for almost an hour, began with her highlighting her vocals on an impressive and impassioned “What Now.” The song was one of her highpoints, along with the gorgeous “Stay” and the reggae track “Man Down,” and the dance-heavy “Where Have You Been.”

The one drawback to Rihanna’s set, which admittedly had fans going crazy, was how produced it felt at times, with the numerous backup dancers joining her for choreographed moves on songs like “Cake” and “Rude Boy,” distracting from the performance. It’s hard to digest her pop polish when she’s on the same bill with someone as raw and intense as Eminem. Every time Marshal Mathers emerged on stage, he was a lightning rod for attention, like when he reappeared at the end of her set to join in on a stunning “Love The Way You Lie.”

After the song ended and Rihanna walked offstage, Eminem said simply, “California, let’s go!” And with that, the Monster tour went off. “Square Dance,” “Marshall Matters,” “Stan,” with Rihanna singing the Dido “Thank You” refrain,” an anthemic “The Way I Am,” “Berzerk” -- it was one knockout performance after another. And his lightning speed delivery on “Rap God” was simply jaw-dropping.

At one point Eminem said to the crowd, “I am under the impression there are a lot of people under the influence of an illegal substance,” drawing lots of cheers. Mathers got an even bigger pop when he followed by saying, “If not, how many of you are just fucked up mentally? That’s why it feels like such a family.” All of this was a segue into a mix of songs that included the one-two punch of “The Real Slim Shady” and “Without Me,” which had the Rose Bowl literally exploding with firecrackers at the end of the set.

Just as Rihanna’s best moments came when she let her stage persona go and showed her warmth, Eminem shone as he introduced “I’m Not Afraid.” “This song I want to dedicate to anyone who ever lost anyone to addiction,” he said, referencing his own battles with the disease by adding, “I could not have gotten through it without you.”

Rihanna then returned for her encores, coming back for both “Diamonds” and “We Found Love,” before Eminem delivered “Lose Yourself.” Fittingly, the almost three-hour show ended with both performing “The Monster.”
