More tickets released for Eminem's record-breaking Saturday show in Wellington

Eminem fans who missed out on tickets to the rap star's mega Wellington concert are in luck, as a limited number of tickets have been released for general sale.

The Rap God will already see 45,000 people pack into Westpac Stadium on Saturday night a record for the Wellington stadium.

Now, it has been announced that a limited number of tickets have been released for the public to buy to take part in the historic event.

The tickets had been held for production and tour requirements.

But if you are from out of town, it might be difficult to find accommodation at such late notice.

"There's not a room left in the city, or in the regions for that matter. I've got people from as far away as Taupo coming to stay with me, downstairs in our own house," said Wellington mayor Justin Lester.

It's the first time Eminem has visited New Zealand since releasing his controversial album Kamikaze and engaging in a high-profile feud with rival rapper Machine Gun Kelly.

Traffic around Westpac Stadium is expected to be awful, with 90,000 expected to show up to the Newtown Festival too this weekend.

"Newtown is best avoided if you're trying to get somewhere in a hurry," said Wellington City Council infrastructure manager Siobhan Procter.

"Keep your speed down and keep your eyes peeled in case a pedestrian makes a wrong move we want this weekend to be memorable for all the right reasons."

She says public transport will be the best option.
