A few weeks back, Slim Shady talked about performing in London.
“I’m not saying I’ll never be ready for that again, but right now, this is what’s working for me,” Shady said about falling back from long tours. “[My stage shows nowadays?] It’s definitely better. It definitely brings a whole new element to it. There’s a whole different energy. It’s louder, it’s more in your face, it’s more explosive.” (BBC Radio 1)
