Macklemore & Ryan Lewis land Vegas residency
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis have landed a Las Vegas residency.
The newly-minted Grammy-winners have signed a deal to perform exclusively at the Wynn Resorts Encore Beach Club and Surrender Nightclub through this summer, MTV News reports.
Ryan will also be DJing solo for a few dates, and will be kicking off his sets at Surrender this Saturday.
The pair will kick off their joint shows at the nightclub on May 25 before moving to Encore Beach Club July 4 and returning to Surrender for their final date on September 13.
The duo follow in the footsteps of an elite list of performers who've landed residencies in Sin City, including Sir Elton John, Celine Dion, Cher, Guns N' Roses, Cee Lo, Prince and most recently, Britney Spears.
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are enjoying a banner year already after scooping four Grammy Awards last weekend, including Album of the Year and Best Rap Song.
The duo seem to have maintained their humility despite rocketing to fame last year with their album The Heist. Macklemore even apologised to pal Kendrick Lamar for "robbing" him of the win for Best Rap Album.
The Thrift Shop posted part of his text message to Kendrick on Instagram: "You got robbed. I wanted you to win. You should have. It's weird and sucks that I robbed you. I was gonna say that during the speech. Then the music started playing during my speech, and I froze," he wrote.
But Kendrick is nothing but supportive. He insisted the Grammys simply need to include more hip-hop categories.
"It's well deserved; he did what he did, man," he told XXL Magazine. "He went out there and hustled and grinded. Everything happens for a reason; the universe comes back around, that's how it go."
"We part of the world. We part of the movement. So I think any awards, including the Grammys, should always push for more hip-hop because it's music as a whole, it's not just splitting different regions. Everything moves as far as sound and vibrations, and that's how it goes. And we are a part of that," Kendrick added.
