A "Thriftshop" in Abu Dhabi?! Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are UAE bound
While the concepts of a "Thrift Shop" and "Same Love" may be foreign to many in the Middle East, the hip-hop duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are swinging into Abu Dhabi on April 25 to sing said tracks and many more.
Time Out Dubai reported that their appearance will be on the back of a mammoth world tour, which saw them cover more than 277,000 miles in 2013.
After sweeping four 2014 Grammy awards, we'll see if the region is ready for these unique-stylin' songsters and promoters of same-sex marriage.
Exclusive pre-sale tickets are available today, while everybody else will soon be able to snatch theirs on Wednesday, February 19 from www.ticketmaster.ae and Virgin Megastores.
