Macklemore unveils North American Ben Tour dates

Fall run includes 19 stops

Macklemore has announced North American dates for The Ben Tour produced by Live Nation. Set to start on September 17th at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, the 19-date tour will make stops across both coasts and the midwest.

Tickets will be available starting with Citi and American Express presales beginning Monday, March 6th. General on-sale begins March 10th at 10 am local time via Ticketmaster.

For this upcoming tour, Macklemore is proud to have partnered with PLUS1, and will be donating $1 per ticket to Bridges – Seattle Alternative Peer Group in support of their work in mentoring youth in recovery.

The Ben Tour kicks off this spring with a 19-date European stretch starting Tuesday, April 4th at Dublin’s 3Arena, before the global hit-maker brings his electrifying show to cities in the UK, Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany, Poland, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Denmark before wrapping in Oslo, Norway on Tuesday, May 9th.

The announcement comes as the multi-Diamond certified Grammy winner releases his newest album Ben along with the track “No Bad Days” and its music video. The clip was directed by his seven-year-old daughter Sloane.

“My dream director. Also, my co-star.” Macklemore states. “Sloane has had a creative pulse since I can remember. Her style, her eye, her freestyles, her Melodies. Outside of her mom I probably trust her creative input more than anyone else. And she has never been shy about her opinion. I’m so proud of who she is that it puts tears in my eyes thinking about it. To be able to brainstorm, dream, flush out ideas and ultimately pull it off with Sloane at the helm… this one will be one of my favorite videos forever. I hope it makes you smile.”

Last night (Thurs, Mar 2nd), Macklemore was the speaking guest on NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and will be performing a new track titled “Tail Lights” next week on Tuesday, March 7th. Macklemore will appear on NBC’s The Today Show to perform “No Bad Days” today (Fri, Mar 3rd).
