Famed rap duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have churned out chart toppers with hits “Thrift Shop,” “Can’t Hold Us,” and the latest sensation, “Downtown.” They will be in town next year to spend an evening with fans at the Louisville Palace on January 31.
Part of the duo’s appeal is their innovation and reliance on ideas and lyrics that go against much of hip-hop’s traditional swagger. “Thrift Shop” talks of a penchant for secondhand clothes, while the Heist song “Same Love” features singer-songwriter Mary Lambert in a celebration of same-sex unions. The two musicians have become a powerhouse in delivering lyrics with a strong message accompanied by infectious musical beats.
The pair was nominated for seven Grammy awards at the 56th Annual Grammys, winning four awards, including Best New Artist, Best Rap Album (The Heist), Best Rap Album, and Best Rap Performance (“Thrift Shop”). Macklemore and Ryan Lewis hadn’t released a new album since the incredibly successful Heist. Now, with a new album coming up that already has hits on the charts, this tour already has a high demand.
