Eminem thanks fans for support

Eminem, who has battled an addiction to prescription drugs, has thanked his fans at a New York concert for helping him get through dark times.

The 39-year-old told hundreds in the audience that he "wouldn't have gotten out of that dark place without y'all" before he performed the Grammy-winning song Not Afraid.

He said the performance was "dedicated to anybody tonight who's been through personal struggles".

Eminem's addiction and climb to sobriety is detailed in his 2010 album Recovery. It was that year's best-selling album.

At the Hammerstein Ballroom the rapper performed more than a dozen songs at an event for the watch brand G-Shock, including the hits Lose Yourself, Love the Way You Lie and The Real Slim Shady.

Hip-hop foursome Slaughterhouse opened for the Detroit-born rapper.
