The group has toured their electrifying live show worldwide for nearly a year, and before doing the states, will will play already sold-out shows across Europe.

Ticket sales in Europe have been astounding -Two nights in Dublin sold out in 25 minutes—faster than any artist since Beyonce.

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, from Seattle, are known for their expertly crafted music and innovative music videos and media. They broke new ground by independently releasing their debut full-length album, ‘The Heist,’ which shot to the #1 slot on iTunes, debuted at #2 the Billboard charts and was certified Gold without the support of a traditional record label.

Recently they made Billboard history as the only duo to send their first two singles to #1 on both the Hot 100 and Top 40 Radio charts with new single “Can’t Hold Us” and breakout smash “Thrift Shop;” each has over 60 million and 350 million views on YouTube respectively. “Same Love”, a song and video in support of marriage equality, galvanized young fans and voters, and is currently soaring at radio on multiple formats with certified Gold sales.

We here at Jack love these guys, and hope to catch as many of these arena shows as possible – and remember, just about every seat in The Key is a good seat.

-Lee Callahan, Jack FM
