Macklemore Portland Tickets
Macklemore Portland tickets are your key to the opening show of Macklemore’s “Gemini Tour”. Kicking off at the Roseland Theater in Portland, this is a nationwide tour which precedes the launch of his new, untitled album. Since 2016, Macklemore’s music has taken a personal turn, despite remaining as funky as ever. His single “Drug Dealer” is a harrowing account of opioid addiction, a problem the rapper himself struggled with for many years. In 2017, he has released two singles, one of which is a celebration of his actual Grandmother’s 100th birthday. This tour will feature many of these new songs, and Macklemore’s old hits as well. Book your seats now.
The Personal Approach
Macklemore has always been one to speak his mind. 2016’s “White Privilege II”, for example, consisted of commentary supporting the Black Lives Matter movement. It was followed by his poetic rap single “Drug Dealer”; an honest account of his personal struggles, and the dark side of drugs. This single was released for a documentary on opioid use in America, which featured Macklemore discussing this menace with then-President Obama.
Since 2017, however, Macklemore is celebrating the personal. With the old age coming-of-age song “Glorious”, he celebrates his Grandmother’s 100th birthday. In the video, she is shown spending the day with her Grandson, at a karaoke bar and riding in a convertible. His latest single is a direct contrast to this song. Titled “Marmalade”, the song is a sugar-rush inducing life-affirmation. Its video features children taking to the town in a ‘borrowed’ car. All of this suggests that his new album, which has not yet been titled or given a release date, may follow a joyous tone.
There is speculation, however, that the new album may be named “Gemini” since it is what Macklemore’s latest tour is called. While this is not proven yet, it is expected that this fall tour will reflect the positivity of this year’s released singles so far. It is expected to be a party like no other. The tour kicks off in Portland, Maine. So what are you waiting for? Book your Macklemore Portland tickets now!
