Macklemore announced his North American Gemini Tour with a unique ultimatum.
"Everybody knows in the old days a tour was decided by a bow and arrow," said the Seattle rapper in a video. If the rapper shoots an arrow and gets a bullseye on the first try, he reveals the tour dates. If not: "I will stay home, get into progressive drum and bass and pierce my penis." After firing an arrow straight into the ground, Macklemore shrugs.
"Guess I'm getting a d**k ring."
The clip ends with the full North American tour listing that's also on his website. The tour will promote Macklemore's upcoming, as-yet-untitled LP – his second project without regular producer Ryan Lewis. The rapper has recently released two singles: the Skylar Grey-assisted "Glorious" and "Marmalade," featuring Lil Yachty.
