Macklemore Preaches “Same Love”
Hangout Fest’s “be nice…or go home” motto was in full effect during Macklemore & Ryan Lewis‘ packed performance. The crowd went wild for the Seattle MC when he gave an impassioned gay rights advocacy speech at the top of his anthemic song. After telling the crowd, “I believe in tolerance, I believe in passion and I believe in equality,” they responded with a deafening wall of screaming then sang along to every word of “Same Love.” It was almost spiritual. Well, if your church tossed around inflatable toys to play with and sprayed the audience with confetti at the end of the sermon.
