Organisers pumped up the volume, with residents up to three miles away claiming they could hear the star as he performed at Bellahouston Park.

One reader contacted the Evening Times to say the window of her high-rise flat was vibrating.

The US rapper played to a huge crowd of 35,000 as part of Glasgow Summer Sessions. And the star, who has sold more than 100million albums, more than earned his place as its headline act.

Eminem, also known as Slim Shady, jetted in from America especially for the Glasgow gig, which follows shows from Kings of Leon, Avicii and Tinie Tempah.

Despite the park being rain-sodden, festival-goers had a fantastic time as the Lose Yourself singer closed the special summer event.

Police had stepped up their presence around the site after complaints from residents following Saturday's Avicii gig.

The rapper will also perform at Reading and Leeds festivals.

Glasgow City Council bosses said the gigs had brought an economic boost to the city.
