Irish journalist live tweets Macklemore's Dublin gig and it's something else
My Oh My.
The incredibly popular duo of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis were playing to a sold-out crowd at the 3Arena in Dublin this weekend and the Grammy Award winner didn't disappoint with lots of his fans absolutely loving the gig.

The rapper has always felt a special bond with Irish audiences and it seems like he's adored by his fans over here also.

Here he is throwing a cookie onto the second tier of the venue after his song "Let's Eat". We've no idea why he did this but it's pretty impressive.
While fans of the 'Thrift Shop' and 'Can't Hold Us' singer were understandably swept up in the buzz of the evening, journalist Dave Hanratty was also in attendance but in a strictly professional capacity.
His account of the whole evening is wonderfully surreal. Take a look.
As is the norm with most performers that are looking for some hometown love, Macklemore played up the Irish card.
Things got a bit weird though.
The standard chant soon broke out.
Dave seemed like he was slowly being won over by the Washington rapper.
Chants are back, Ted. The rapper might also get a bit of a surprise when he visits the Twister Pepper/ Wigwam though.
To be fair to the Grammy Winner, he did give everything when he was on stage.
The crowd seemed like they were really getting into it.
There was drama in the jacks though...
...and on stage.
The important question. Will Dave and Macklemore be mates?
You better believe it!
Here's hoping that Macklemore's upcoming Dublin gigs will be just as eventful.
