27 Jun 2014
It has been revealed that Eminem was banned from performing at Hyde Park due to “offensive” and “unsuitable” lyrics.
The Mirror has reported that the real reason Eminem was unable to perform at BST Hyde Park festival was due to the Royal Parks, who run Hyde Park, decision that his performance could upset other park user.
The report was revealed through a Freedom of Information act with The Mirror stating that terms had been agreed for the rapper to perform at British Summer Time Festival.
