Eminem has announced a second headline gig at London's Wembley Stadium.

The 'Rap God' hitmaker, who was banned from Hyde Park because his didn't get the royal seal of approval, is playing on both July 11 and 12, after tickets for the first show sold out in minutes this morning (09.05.14).

The rapper is returning to the UK for his first headline gig since 2001 and has chosen to perform at the massive venue.

Asked how he felt about being banned from Hyde Park, he told DJ Zane Lowe on BBC Radio 1: ''That's mean, man. It kinda hurt my feelings.''

He added: ''The easiest way to get me to do something is to tell me I can't do it. Thanks to the Royal Parks for making it all possible... for Wembley.''

Eminem will be the first rapper ever to headline the venue and his next single 'Headlights' from his latest album, 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2', is going to be released to coincide with the show.

The star, who last performed in the UK at Leeds and Reading Festivals last year, is also doing a mini US stadium tour with Rihanna this summer, 'The Monster', which will take them to Los Angeles, New Jersey and Detroit.
