    Break dancers, confetti cannons, a wig-wearing British alter-ego and a magnificent thin curly mustache were only a handful of the surprises Macklemore and Ryan Lewis brought to the Louisville Palace Sunday night. And after combining these signature touches with enthusiastic performances of the hip hop duo’s biggest hits and fan favorites, it goes without saying that Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are always welcome back in Louisville.

    Producer Ryan Lewis was joined on stage by rapper Macklemore to open the sold-out show with “Ten Thousand Hours,” the first track on the duo’s 2012 Grammy-winning album, The Heist. And as soon as the first introductory note of the song exuded the speakers, the entire packed crowd jumped to its feet in excitement.

    The pair continued the show with plenty of music and intimate conversations with the audience, including a moment to share that his father was raised in Kentucky, a surprise appearance by Foxy Shazam frontman, Eric Nally, who belted out the chorus of “Downtown,” and a David Bowie tribute performed by Macklemore’s hilarious alter-ego, Sir Raven Bowie. The duo surprisingly excluded their most recent single, “White Privilege” from their set, but closed with an energetic encore of “Can’t Hold Us.”

    And if you missed it, here are some photos from last night's blast of an event!

    Macklemore noted a fan upfront with a red hat that went well with his Thrift Shop attire and happily accepted the accoutrement for the song.



    Trying the massive hat on led him to state an obvious question: "Dude. How big is your head?!"
