One of the hottest pop acts in the US, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ album The Heist has absolutely taken over the charts. Three of the five singles have been enormous hits in “Thrift Shop”, “Can’t Hold Us”, and “Same Love”, in that chronological order. Ben Haggerty (Macklemore) and Ryan Lewis released the album last October 9th independently with no mainstream promotion or support. Singer Ray Dalton was featured on “Can’t Hold Us”, a catchy summer jam. “Same Love” also received considerable media attention for its pro-gay rights stance and criticism of homophobia in hip-hop culture. The single was released in support of Washington state Referendum 74 which approved a bill to legalize same-sex marriage. The issue hit home with Haggerty and Lewis, both of whom are Seattle-based. The popularity of this duo has never been higher. Don’t miss these two superstars--Gold Coast Tickets has the best selection for the best price!
