With his ninth studio album arriving later this week, Eminem is unsurprisingly gearing up to hit the road in 2018.

Speaking with Pollstar, veteran booking agent Cara Lewis—whose client list also includes Chance The Rapper, Travis Scott and Russ—revealed that Em will be performing select U.S. dates next year, his first string of shows since 2014.

As a 23-year veteran of the booking industry, Lewis also delved into why it's easier now than ever before to book hip-hop and R&B acts. "Hip-hop and R&B are defining the culture of today and what resonates with young fans," she explained.

In addition to Eminem's 2018 plans, Lewis also revealed that Travis Scott will be headlining an arena tour in 2018, while Chance The Rapper is set to play a slew of international dates including Lollapalooza in Chile, Brazil and Argentina.

Eminem is slated to release Revival, featuring pre-release singles "Walk On Water" and "Untouchable," this Friday, December 15.
