According to Ken West, organiser of New Zealand’s ‘The Big Day Out’ festival, Eminem declined to headline the event, turning down a whopping $6 million!
West explains that Eminem was being paid by Australia’s Dainty Group to perform 3 nights for $15 million in Sydney and Melbourne. He told the New Zealand Herald “For Eminem walking out with $15million off three shows, means that it was la la land to ever think he could do the Big Day Out, even though we offered $6 million!”
In similar news, the Sydney Football Stadium shows (December 2nd and 4th) didn’t go off without a hitch. Reports say that many fans are demanding a refund after complaining of unacceptable sound quality throughout the show. Hundreds of frustrated fans have taken to Dainty Group’s facebook page to complain, seeking an apology and some looking for a full refund.
But after seeing Eminem’s staggering performance fee, do you think the rappers’ rant on the song ‘Take From Me’ is justified?
