Whilst previously confirmed for We The Fest in Jakarta in August, the pair have now announced they’ll be heading to Singapore and Philippines, marking the first time the pair will perform in Singapore and the second opportunity for Philippines fans to see them play.

 

Macklemore, who takes on lyrical duties and Lewis, the DJ, have been working together since 2008, but first came into the public’s consciousness after the release of their chart-topping 2012 album “The Heist.”  It spawned a pair of No. 1 singles, “Can’t Hold Us” and “Thrift Shop,” as well as the gay rights anthem “Same Love.”

 

The album won Best Rap Album at the 2014 Grammys, while the duo was named Best New Artist. “Thrift Shop” won Grammys for Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Song.
