One month after announcing that they'll embark on an unspecified mini-tour, Eminem and Rihanna have revealed the dates and venues for their summer co-headlining Monster tour.

5 Eminem Tracks Only Hardcore Fans Know

The pop superstar will join the rapper August 7th at Los Angeles' Rose Bowl, August 16th at E. Rutherford, N.J.'s MetLife Stadium and August 22nd at Detroit's Comerica Park, with no further dates currently scheduled. Tickets go on sale on Friday, March 28 at 10 a.m. local time through the Live Nation mobile app and Live Nation's website.

Live Nation has set up a Facebook page where fans can RSVP for early access to presale tickets starting 10 a.m. local time on Saturday, March 22. Live Nation mobile app users will also have access to presale tickets beginning Thursday, March 27 at 10:00 a.m. local time. Mobile users can text “LNAPP” to 404040 to download the Live Nation mobile app (available for iOS and Android). 

Eminem and Rihanna first teamed up on the 2010 song "Love the Way You Lie" before reuniting for "The Monster," which the rapper released at the end of October as the fourth single from The Marshall Mathers LP 2. In a Rolling Stone cover story this past fall, Eminem said that the new collaboration with Rihanna was "not necessarily a sequel, as much as it is a revisitation" to his past. "To me, it's more about the vice, and it's more about the nostalgia," he said.

In 2010, Eminem and Jay-Z performed two shows at Comerica Park as part of the Home & Home tour, in which the rappers performed two shows each in Detroit and New York.

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
