MANILA -- Grammy-nominated hip-hop duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis will perform in the Philippines as part of "The Heist" global tour in March.

The acclaimed indie artists, known for hits such as "Can't Hold Us," will hold a one-night-only concert at the Mall of Asia Arena on March 16.

Known simply as Macklemore, the duo has garnered six nominations at this year's Grammy awards, including Best New Artist, Best New Album Hip Hop/Rap Album and Song of the Year.

Their breakthrough single "Thrift Shop" even topped several charts including Billboard's US year-end list for 2013, the first time a song achieved that feat without support from a major record label. 

Tickets are available at all SM Tickets outlets, and online at or call 470-2222.

The concert is made possible by Wize and Ope and in part by Concertus Manila.
