Thift Shoppers and Same Lovers Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have announced their return to New Zealand in March 2014 to perform two dates in Wellington and Auckland. Macklemore and producer Ryan Lewis emerged from the Pacific Northwest in 2012 with a DIY ethic and the song of the year in “Thrift Shop”.
Utterly addictive, its hilarious clip saw the duo propel to the top of charts across the globe, smashing into the mainstream. The track took the honours in the world’s largest music poll – triple j’s Hottest 100, with over 1.5m votes.
The success of “Thrift Shop” was followed up with two singles of equal acclaim, both tracks breaking records with number one debut chart positions in multiple countries: “Same Love” and “Can’t Hold Us”. The "Can't Hold Us" music video even received a touch of New Zealand glory being shot all over the country on their previous visit.
They will be joined Londoner Tinie Tempah who has recently released his latest album Demonstration which features guest appearances from Diplo, Dizzee Rascal, 2Chainz, Big Sean, and John Martin.
They will play Auckland at Vector Arena on the 13th of March & Wellington at TSB Arena on the 12th of March Both shows are all ages.
