Macklemore & Ryan Lewis will headline mtvU’s Woodies tour in Greeley

At some point, indie hip-hop sensations Macklemore & Ryan Lewis will stop coming to Colorado on a monthly basis to push their hotter-than-hot single “Thrift Shop.”

That point, however, has not arrived yet.

After headlining Red Rocks in early-February, and headlining a Mountain Dew-sponsored party in Breckenridge in mid-December, and headlining a sold-out Ogden Theatre in early-December, and opening for Big Gigantic at Red Rocks in September … Macklemore & Ryan Lewis will play a big party in Greeley (of all places) next month.

The college gig, on the University of Northern Colorado campus on March 3, is a part of the 2013 mtvU Woodies Tour, which will precede the Woodies Awards, thrown by the Viacom network every year at the South by Southwest Music Festival.

Other gigs on the Woodies tour: March 8 at Dixie State College in St. George, Utah, and March 9 at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Ariz.

The UNC gig on March 3 will take over the Butler-Hancock Athletic Center in Greeley. Tickets, $8 for students/staff and $25 for the general public, are available at unco.edu/tickets.
