Story by Jack Foley
FRESH from SXSW Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – the number one selling duo – are heading back to the UK to play O2 Shepherds Bush Empire this May.
The duo will play a one-off date at the London venue on Monday, May 27, 2013.
Tickets, costing £19.50, go on sale on Friday, March 22 at 9.30am.
Seattle’s Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have emerged as a premier national hip-hop group known for their electrifying live shows, expertly crafted music and innovative music videos and media.
After years of building momentum with impassioned support from their devoted fan base, 2012 has been a banner year for the group, kicked off by Macklemore’s feature in XXL’s Freshman Class.
Most recently, they have broken new ground by independently releasing their debut full-length album, The Heist, which shot into the No.1 spot on iTunes and debuted at No.2 on the Billboard charts without the support of a traditional record label.
Their single, Thrift Shop, reached number 1 in the UK last month and the popular music video has had over 173 million views on YouTube.
