The news buzzing around the net over the past day is that [twitter=Eminem]Eminem[/twitter] will be the headlining act for this year’s Lollapalooza that kicks off early August in Chicago.

The Chicago Tribune reports,  industry sources have confirmed Eminem as a headlining act for the Grant Park show August 5-7, but Lollapalooza promoters C3 Presents had no comment for the publication.

This announcement comes as surprise since the Detroit rhyme slayer no longer tours, and it might be the start of something else as rumors circulated in late 2009 that Slim would bring the Up In Smoke Tour back on the road in 2011.
