I thought it was because:

* Brian liked the meaning of the Eminem song (only one chance : grab it before it's gone; final chance to see "queen") and thought it fitted well as an opening for the Q+PR tour.

* Brian likes Eminem because he says / does whatever he wants.

* Eminem sampled a bit of a queen song.

Why Eminem ? Because he's homophobic and Brian thinked it would be great to open a show for a gay-band called Queen...

Just because Brian and Roger are in a rock band doesn't mean their tastes in music aren't allowed to transcend rock.

I think it was the perfect house music for the tour. It's an energetic song, and ideal to get you into the right mood and mindset.

It was the lyrics of Lose Yourself which inspired Brian.

And it proved to be a perfect intro.

What essentially made it swwas Brian's guitar riffs jammin' underneath the song...which sort of let the crowd know what was to come. Awesome into. Check it out on YouTube, there are some sweet shots of this:
