Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Announce Fall US Tour, Say, “Experience Life with Us”[VIDEO]
They've been ruling the charts all year, and now, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis will be bringing their music to their fans live, all across the U.S. The duo have announced a fall tour that kicks off October 22 in Portland, Oregon and wraps in their hometown of Seattle in December.
In a video posted on their official website, the duo frolic through Germany while announcing details of the tour. "Where are you gonna be this fall?" asks Macklemore. "Hopefully, in America. You're not sitting on your couch. You're getting up, you're getting out, you're experiencing life with us, in a venue, in the U.S.A. "
Macklemore then adds, "We're not Bruce Springsteen...but he's our dad! He's Ryan's dad!" After repeating this hilarious, apparently only to them, line several times and cracking up, he finishes by saying, "Come with us! Party in the U.S.A. tour 2013!"
Also in the video, the duo urge fans to purchase tickets Tuesday through Thursday, as part of a pre-sale at a super-discounted rate. You can pick them up on a first-come, first-served basis at Macklemore.com/Shows. On Friday and Saturday, all the rest of the tickets will go on sale.
