Eminem and Jay-Z rock Detroit with help from Dr. Dre, Drake, and so many more

eminem-jay-zImage Credit: Kevin Mazur/EM/WireImage.comEminem and Jay-Z sharing a stage is an event in and of itself. But that wasn’t all the two rap titans had in store for the first night of their “Home and Home” mini-tour at Detroit’s Comerica Park last night. Oh no. In the course of their two sets, Em and Jay brought out friends including Dr. Dre, Drake, 50 Cent, B.o.B, Young Jeezy — practically half of the hip-hop galaxy.

By all accounts, it was a night to remember. Check out clips of Dr. Dre’s guest appearance, plus Eminem and Jay-Z doing their classic 2001 collab “Renegade,” after the jump (clips via Rap Radar; lots of NSFW language).

Were you at Comerica Park last night? Planning to see Eminem and Jay-Z’s second show there tonight, or one of their Yankee Stadium dates in NYC on Sept. 13 and 14? Let us know in the comments.

    Honestly? An all-white audience? Who would have thought this?

    • Bob

      Its would-OF. Check your grammar.

      • Sara

        It’s correct the way the OP wrote it. You’re a moron.

      • Wes

        Would’ve is the contraction of would and have. Bob is wrong.

      MOSTLY WHITE WHY DOES IT MATTER KICK ASS ROCKIN CONCERT THE BEST EVER HISTORY IN THE MAKING

    • donknottz

      Most hip hop shows have a majority white crowd. Common said it best in one of his songs “When I perform it’s coffee shop chicks and white dudes”

  • harry

    EPIC!!!

  • CEVISTONE

    NO DOUBT ABOUT IT EM AND JAY ARE THE GREATEST RAPPER LIVING ON EARTH

  • Disembowelment

    Of course there are more caucasians in the audience. The United States has a greater Anglo-Saxon population than it does Afro-American.

    • Nshi

      That’s racist.

    • Sara

      Actually, it was a pretty even mix. And nobody gave a f***. So you shouldn’t either.

    It was fantastic! I’ve seen both Em and Jay in concert before, but this was one of the best concerts I’ve ever been to. Both of them were so on top of their game. I’m so happy I was able to witness this amazing concert. I’m from a suburb just outside of Detroit, but it’s funny, there were a lot of people who came to this show from out of state. I was at a bar across the street hanging out with my friends for a couple hours before the show. It was obviously packed with people who would be attending the concert, and a lot of people we met were from different states, Ohio, Illinois, North Carolina, even people from California!

    • Sam

      I was there, I drove up from North Carolina. Just got home (14 hour drive) and have to leave for work right now but it was soooooo worth it!

  • Grover

    I was there, my God was it off the hook. I don’t think that one’s ever being topped in my books.

  • Chris

    I’m an old fart (42), and have been to a lot of shows. This one was definetly in the top 5. Outstanding performances, great stage set-up and well-executed sound. It was well worth it, even if it meant getting home at 4 am.

  • Kasia

    The concert was amazing. I was in the Upper Deck and it was shaking because everyone was so into it, dancing and jumping up and down. I have never been to a show with so much energy. The performances were excellent and the rappers truly enjoyed being there. To top it all off there were surprise special guests and it was truly exciting to be there for such a spectacular event.

  • Gigi

    Why does it have to be about black white WHO THE HELL CARES! The concert was unbelievable and epic. The talent that took that stage last night was timeless.

  • Terri

    I am also one of the older ones that was there(52). Myself and 3 others drove there from Buffalo, NY, about a 7 hour drive but SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO worth it! What an awesome show it was!!!!

  • Jenn

    I was there last nite too and it was unbelievable! I came from North Carolina to see this concert and am so glad I did. Truly amazing. They were both fantastic. Like Kasia, I was in the upper deck and she’s right, the stands were shaking and the energy was great. I was in Hockeytown across the street and met people from Canada and even 2 people from Australia who came just to see this show. 50 and Dre were great too! It truly was an epic event! Also, I must say that I was pleasantly surprised with Downtown Detroit. Everyone said I was crazy for going there because of crime, etc. I got in Tuesday nite, walked around downtown for 3 nites and can honestly say that I felt safe the entire time. I cant say the same about Philly, Atlantic City, or New York.

  • Robert

    They should have played guilty concience or forgot about dre or if i get locked up or bad guys always die

  • Steve

    I love how people were so surprised when we told them we were canadian. Do people not realize Windsor is a 5 minute drive from comerica park? I cam from toronto and it’s only a 4 hour drive. Anyways the concert was ridiculous – VIP floor seats centre stage couldn’t be any better. The energy, anticipation and performances were all unbelievable. Can’t wait for the NYC show!!

  • Meghan

    I’ve seen Em in concert twice now and I can say that seeing him at home in the D last night was one of the best experiences of my life and by far the best concert I have ever been too. What a historical event. There was so much pride for our great city of Detroit that Comerica Park was busting at the seams. The energy was ah-mazing and the performances we spot on. Couldn’t have asked for a better show. It will be something that the D and hip hop fans around the country will talk about for a long time.
