Hip-hop twosome Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have announced a second date on the Irish leg of their European tour.

The duo will perform in Dublin’s 3Arena and Belfast’s SSE Arena on April 15 and April 21 respectively.  And now they've added a second 3Arena Dublin date on Saturday 16 April (tickets on sale November 6 at 9.30am).

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to social organisations and charities including Partners in Health, Equal Justice Initiative, Youth Speaks and The 30/30 Project.

The pair revealed that they are “committed to using their platform and resources to advance issues of equity and justice.”

The Irish gigs will have been added to the 31-day European tour which will follow a jam-packed US tour taking place throughout January and February 2016.

“Can’t wait man. These European shows are about to be craaaazy bruh [sic],” Macklemore tweeted this morning.
