Macklemore is playing solo in New Zealand next year

American rap icon Macklemore will be hitting Auckland's Spark Arena and Wellington's TSB Arena once again in line with his upcoming 'Gemini' tour in February next year.

Gemini is Macklemore's first solo album since 2005, following on from the worldwide success for Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' albums 'The Heist' (2012)—home to singles 'Can't Hold Us', 'Thrift Shop' and 'Same Love' and 'This Unruly Mess I've Made' (2016) featuring the double platinum–certified smash hit 'Downtown'.

Gemini, which recently entered the RIANZ Album Chart at no. 4, features singles 'Glorious' and 'Good Old Days'. Currently climbing the Billboard 100 and having reached the coveted no. 1 slot on the RIANZ Singles Chart, 'Glorious' featuring Skylar Grey, is Macklemore's first top five single as a solo artist. The video for 'Glorious' which stars Macklemore's 100-year-old grandmother has had more than 33 million views.

Follow up single 'Good Old Days' featuring Kesha is the latest track to be lifted from Gemini which is no. 6 this week on the iTunes chart.
