Macklemore + Ryan Lewis

ACCLAIMED SEATTLE hip hop duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis blew the Wellington TSB Bank Arena away last night with a high octane performance that solidified their recent four Grammy wins - doing so with a genuine appreciation for the creative capital.

For just over an hour, MC Ben Haggarty and Producer Ryan Lewis proved just why their DIY approach to production and honest lyricism—touching on subject matters of substance abuse, consumerism, and same sex marriage—have been favoured enough to bring them back to New Zealand for the second time in the space of thirteen months.
