Review: Eminem addresses the Nicki Minaj rumour on the final day of Boston Calling

May 28, 2018

May 28, 2018

The second day of Boston Calling had the biggest headliners, and a solid late afternoon run on the Red and Green stages. The Pod Saves America podcast was a good idea until the line ended up going out the door and around the corner, but Manchester Orchestra on the Green stage was a good enough […]
