Eminem has a surprise planned for Texas, but what is it exactly? A few days ago, this photo below was posted on his Instagram with the caption: “Texas – ‘Square Dance’ with me! Announcement coming 4/22.”
Looks like the real Slim Shady rode in on a horse instead. Take a moment to enjoy the photoshopped head of Eminem in this vintage cowboy picture.
Another announcement scheduled for April 22 is the Austin City Limits Music Festival lineup. Hmm? Could Eminem be headlining? It would make sense since Lollapalooza is a sister fest and Eminem is already headlining that festival in August. With the Austin City Limits Music Festival taking place in October, it seems Eminem would be a perfect fit. That festival takes place over two weekends, October 3-5 and 10-12, at Zilker Park.
If the connection hasn’t beed made, yes, Austin is a place in Texas.
Of course, plans aren’t set in stone and this is only a very probable assumption. Texas is a big place and anything could happen. But as Eminem would say: “Now this looks like a job for me so everybody just follow me, ‘Cause we need a little controversy, ‘Cause it feels so empty without me.”
