Eminem to make live return in LA next month

The rapper will perform at the MTV Movie Awards

Eminem will perform at the MTV Movie Awards in Los Angeles next month.

The rapper, whose new album Relapse is set to be released on May 18 in the UK, will play the event, to be held at the Gibson Amphitheatre, on May 31.

The show is Eminem's first announced live appearance in support of the new album.

Relapse is Marshall Mathers' sixth solo studio release and will be his first in five years, since last effort Encore.

The album's lead single We Made You is out now and has received mixed reviews, but then again Slim Shady is used to answering his critics.

He is rumoured to be releasing a second album this year, tentatively titled Relapse 2 and is also working on a new album by 50 Cent.

Dr Dre's comeback album Detox is also on hold as the producer has been working on Eminem's Relapse records.
