KOI CONCERNS: Rapper Eminem reportedly asked for koi carp to be backstage at a music festival.
PROMOTERS could have their work cut out for them if Eminem adds a Brisbane show to his Australian stadium tour, as has been widely tipped.
Reports from overseas say the rapper demanded expensive Japanese koi carp on his rider at a festival in Northern Ireland last week.
“Em” asked for a wooden pond to be built in his backstage area and filled with the high-end, costly aquatic creatures.
But if Slim Shady does rock Suncorp Stadium this year, he’ll be out of luck.
Koi carp are considered a noxious pest in Queensland and possessing them can attract fines of up to $200,000.
