Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Concert at Echo Beach!

Last week I went to see Macklemore & Ryan Lewis at Echo Beach in Toronto! When played on the radio, their songs are danceworthy, but Macklemore’s energy, enthusiasm and pure excitement were infectious. Of the three concerts I’ve been to this summer (Jonas Brothers and Tim McGraw being the first two), Macklemore was the best performer! He really knows how to involve the crowd and make it feel intimate.

He said that when he was younger and battling a drug addiction, he came up to Canada and got sober for the first time. It was so touching to hear his story, because performers so rarely talk personally on stage anymore. It felt like he really was appreciative of his time up North.

For his encore, Macklemore came running out in his Raven Bowie costume for And We Danced! That sequinned cape was magnificent.
