Reading and Leeds 2017: People slam Eminem as headliner after 'miming scandal' at 2013 festival

Some people are not too impressed with his booking after it was claimed he was miming during his last Reading & Leeds festival appearance in 2013.

Fans have taken to Twitter to vent their frustration at Eminem's headline slot at the annual music festivals.

"Why the f**k have you got him again?" tweeted one person. "I was there when he was miming and he was s**t."

"Oh not Eminem he didn't even bother to hide the miming walking off stage to get drinks while backing track played. Rubbish," another person said.

"Reading announcin Eminem makin the decision not to go easier after last times antics of miming the whole thing n the S**TTEST song selection (sic)," another angry festival goer tweeted.

"'I'd be so pissed off if I was a huge Eminem fan and just saw him miming for 90 minutes,' wrote one Twitter user at the time.


"Eminem is miming. Disappointing. #ReadingFestival." Another tweeted.


Eminem is miming. Disappointing. #ReadingFestival

At the time, organisers slammed the suggestion he was lip-syncing during his 90-minute set.

"F*** off," Melvin Benn told NME, "I have never heard such f***ing nonsense in all my life. Absolutely no.

"I was onstage all of the time, and trust me, there was no miming."
