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

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.
