Em's Debut In Northern Ireland In Danger of Being Boycotted Over Missionary Service Conflict
Eminem's debut performance in Northern Ireland is in jeopardy of being boycotted by locals, who fear his performance will interrupt a missionary prayer service taking place near the park where he will be performing.
Em is slated to headline the Tennent's Vital at Ward Park, which in Northern Ireland on August 24th.
The rapper's performance is taking place on the same day as Bangor's Missionary Convention, which is celebrating its 75th anniversary.
According to the Belfast Telegraph, locals will lobby the North Down Borough Council and call for Eminem's performance to be canceled.
A meeting is scheduled tonight to discuss the issue of the proximity of the concert to the prayer service.
An entertainment license has not been granted for the event, according to the Belfast Telegraph, over 55,000 tickets have already been sold for the two day festival.
