Macklemore & Ryan Lewis have become the latest act to book a Las Vegas residency after signing up to perform a series of holiday shows at Wynn Resorts Encore Beach Club and Surrender Nightclub.

The “Thrift Shop” hitmakers will become the first hip-hop act booked for a concert stint in Sin City when they kick off shows over Memorial Day weekend.

Lewis will officially announce the residency with solo DJ shows on Saturday.

The duo, who picked up four Grammy Awards on Sunday night, join Britney Spears, Celine Dion and Sir Elton John among the music superstars performing residencies in Las Vegas this year.
