Watch Macklemore Announce His Gemini Tour the Funniest Way Possible

After giving fans a sugar rush with his humorous video "Marmalade," Macklemore returns with another amusing visual to announce his forthcoming Gemini Tour. 

Draped in a swanky grey suit, the one-minute clip finds Macklemore making a bet with his fans: If he successfully shoots his arrow onto the bullseye after his first attempt, he'll go on tour, but if he misses, he'll stay home and pierce his penis. After several errant attempts, the "Thrift Shop" MC announces his plans to go on tour anyway.  

For Macklemore, the tour will support his new solo album, sans regular producer partner Ryan Lewis. So far, he's released two singles, including the soul-stirring "Glorious" featuring Skylar Grey and his Lil Yachty-assisted "Marmalade." 

During an interview with Zane Lowe last month, the Seattle star relished his new solo opportunity, and said that he's in a "good place" musically. "I always try to get a different pallete of sounds and textures and vibes," Macklemore said. "This album, I was in a good place man... for the most part, if I'm in a happy place and life is good, that's going to be reflected in the music."

The Gemini Tour will begin Oct. 6 in Portland, OR at the Roseland Theater and will carry on until Nov. 14, where he'll wrap things up at Boston's House of Blues. Tickets go onsale Friday, (Aug. 11). Take a look at the dates for his Gemini Tour below.
