Located just below St. Andrew’s Hall, The Shelter has proven to be the ultimate, intimate fan and artist experience. With only a 400-person capacity, The Shelter has hosted artists such as Eminem, Queens of the Stone Age, and the Hives. It was here that a young Marshall Mathers would rap rhymes in freestyle battles and eventually gain enough momentum to embrace the Slim Shady alter ego. In 2017, Eminem returned to The Shelter to pay homage to his early career roots and promote his latest album Revival with a “Mom’s Spaghetti” themed pop-up shop.
