Eminem - The hottest ticket in town
Hundreds of Eminem fans lined up at Record Time in Roseville on Monday to score tickets for the rapper's free hometown concert/record release party tonight at the Sound Board in MotorCity Casino in Detroit.
Those who ended the day with a ticket in hand were ecstatic.
"This is a dream come true for me," said Joe Michaels, 20, of Livonia, who said he had been trying to win tickets to the concert through radio promotions for a week and a half. "I had pretty much given up hope and didn't think it was going to happen. I am so psyched for the show."

Eminem takes on the Punisher
Eminem stars in a new Marvel comic just before the release of his new album.
Eminem's rat-a-tat wordplay makes him arguably one of the most dangerous acts of all time on the mic, but how will he fare against the Punisher, Barracuda and -- gasp! -- the Parents Music Council?
"Eminem/Punisher: Kill You" -- a multimedia special collector's edition Marvel comic -- features the rapper in all his glory. The first half of the comic comes with the June XXL magazine, on newsstands now, and the eight-page conclusion is available exclusively at Marvel free of charge. In the Detroit-set story, Eminem displays a craving for Lafayette coney dogs before he becomes preoccupied with his dangerous adventure.
The album cover for Relapse illustrates a head shot of Eminem composed by a mosaic of thousands of pills. A sticker on the cover resembles a medical prescription, where the patient is Eminem himself while it lists Dr. Dre as the prescribing doctor. Gil Kaufman of MTV News described the cover as a reference to the rapper's struggle and addiction to prescription drugs, adding that it follows Eminem's habit of displaying personal issues in his art.
