HIP HOP MEGASTAR EMINEM TEAMS UP WITH SHOWTIME FOR AN EXCLUSIVE CONCERT EVENT

LOS ANGELES (August 3, 2005) � Eminem, one of the top-selling artists in music, takes his raw and uncensored concert exclusively to Showtime for a special television event in December, it was announced today by Showtime President of Entertainment, Robert Greenblatt. Eminem's full-length performance will be taped in August at the Madison Square Garden stop on this summer's ANGER MANAGEMENT tour. Eminem will perform songs from his critically-acclaimed latest album, "Encore" as well as the smash hits that made him a star including his Oscar�-winning single "Lose Yourself."

"Eminem is one of music's most outspoken and talented original artists today. Since you rarely see him in concert, this will truly be an event for our audience," said Showtime President of Entertainment, Robert Greenblatt.

The show will be directed by Grammy�-nominated Hamish Hamilton who has produced and directed specials for some of the biggest names in the music industry including Madonna, U2, Peter Gabriel, Norah Jones and also directed the exclusive Showtime hit event: ONE NIGHT ONE STAR: USHER LIVE in March 2005.

Discovered by hip hop mogul Dr. Dre, Eminem exploded on to the rap music scene in 1999 with his debut album "The Slim Shady LP" which to date has sold almost five million copies and also won two Grammy� Awards for the Detroit MC. His explicit, brutally honest lyrics and mic skills quickly catapulted him to the top of the charts and made him a household name. His second album, "The Marshall Mathers LP" and third album "The Eminem Show" have sold close to 10 million copies each and produced a slew of hip-hop anthems such as "Stan" featuring Dido, "The Way I Am," and "Without Me." Eminem's troubled childhood growing up in a rough part of Detroit not only served to fuel his desire to rap and produce music but also was the subject of his feature film debut in "8 Mile." The soundtrack to "8 Mile" featured the multi-award winning single "Lose Yourself" and Eminem became the first recording artist to have a #1 film, #1 album and #1 soundtrack all in the same year. "Encore," released in November 2004, has sold 4.7 million albums in the U.S. and features the hits "Just Lose It" and "Toy Soldiers."
