Some people are not too impressed with his booking after it was claimed that Eminem 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 this year’s music festivals. Check some of the tweets below:
@OfficialRandL Oh not Eminem he didnt even bother to hide the miming walking off stage to get drinks while backing track played. Rubbish.

Eminem for R&L….as much as I love his music I've never wanted to see him on stage. Always seems to be a fake performance with the miming ?

Really surprised Reading have gone with Eminem again after he was caught miming throughout his whole show in 13'

@OfficialRandL Eminem was lame as last time!!! Miming and backing tracks – was he scared to actually rap live? No thanks.

Seriously imagine getting excited over Eminem coming to do a half an hour lip synced headline set.

Fair fucks to eminem probably getting paid a couple of million to lip sync for an hour

The reading and Leeds line up is so poor this year. Having Eminem again after he was lip syncing before is crap. Glad I have TRNSMT tickets

R+L lineup is so dead – who really wants to see Eminem lip sync again

As much as I'd like to see Eminem for the experience. I'd rather not watch someone lip sync for hours ?

I wouldn't be that excited for Eminem at reading. Seen him a few years back and it was like an episode of lip sync battle.
