DMC wants to tour with Eminem


It's unclear at the moment whether Eminem will follow up the scattered promotional performances he's been giving for his new album Relapse with a full concert tour. If he does hit the road again soon, though, he can already count on at least one promising candidate for his opener slot: DMC, of the legendary Run-DMC. "I'm trying to get to be the opening act whenever he tours," DMC (pictured, right) tells the Music Mix. "Hopefully I'll get to tour with him."

Though he hasn't broached the subject with Em yet, the two bonded at this year's Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony, where Eminem introduced Run-DMC as his longtime heroes. Turns out the respect is mutual. "He inspires me," says DMC. "When I hear him, he makes me go back to my bedroom and sit down and write. I feel that we represent the upper echelon of what we're supposed to do with our craft."

What do you think of this old-school/new-school pairing? Would you buy tickets to an Eminem/DMC concert?
