Eminem Turns Down A Six Million Dollar Festival Appearance

Who knew Em’s Shady 2.0 checks were that good?

He rocked our shores with his first performance in ten years this month – but that was quite enough Aussie lovin’ for Eminem.

And it seems not even a ridiculous sum of money could tempt the rapstar, who sold out shows in Sydney and Melbourne.

According the New Zealand Herald, bosses behind the annual ‘Big Day Out’ festival had offered the comeback King a massive $6 million fee to headline the event in January.

“It was la la land to think he could ever do the Big Day Out, even though we offered $6 million,” Music Promoter Ken West told the New Zealand Herald.

Here’s the kicker:

“We got asked a year ago — over a year ago — by Prince’s representation, saying ‘We really want to do the Big Day Out,” added West.

So it wasn’t just any million dollar gig. It was a million dollar gig PRINCE couldn’t lock down?

Must be nice!
