Ahead of their biggest ever headline show to date where they'll look out from the Marlay Park stage to 35,000 friendly faces, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have released this amazing preview video where they talk about their first ever Irish gig in the Twisted Pepper way back in 2011.

The duo weren't the massive superstars then that they are today and were struggling to get any Irish promoters to book them for a show on their first ever European tour. Luckily for them (and those who showed up), the Twisted Pepper took a punt on them and it sold out "almost immediately" and Macklemore comments on how he had "never experienced the level of energy the Irish brought to the show."

Check out the amazing video above. Top notch stuff and it'll firmly get you into the mood for the Macklemore & Ryan Lewis gig in Marlay Park on Thursday 10th July.
