Fresh off their infectious & energetic performance at this year’s MTV Movie Awards (which had stars like Jamie Fox, Samuel L Jackson & Kerri Washington bouncing in their seats!) Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have announced a European tour including The O2 Dublin on September 15th. The group played to a packed house at the 800-capacity Dublin Academy only last year while on their 70-city, completely sold-out world tour supporting their critically acclaimed debut full length album The Heist, but such is their incredible rise in popularity they have bypassed the usual gradual increase in venue size and moved straight onto The O2 Dublin!
Seattle hip hop duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis skyrocketed to fame with the release of their mega smash hit Thrift Shop, an ode to second hand shopping. The single topped The Billboard Top 100 chart giving the group their first No.1 hit, with a wildly popular music video (260 million+ views on YouTube) on heavy rotation on BET and MTV2.
Their second single Can't Hold Us is currently burning up the Irish radio airwaves. You can check out the recently released video Click Here
Speaking to Rolling Stone Magazine Macklemore recently commented "We've been able to make music that resonates with people on a personal level, as well as having a work ethic – Ryan and I work 70-80 hours a week and we don't stop," he adds. "That, and the fact that we have fans that believe in our dedication and the art we're making, that's the reason we're at where we're at."
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ are known for their electrifying live shows, expertly crafted music, and innovative music videos and media.
