The whirlwind continues for Seattle's chart-topping Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. The record-setting duo have just announced a 30-date US arena tour that will keep them hopping from October to December.

The tour kicks off in Portland at the Rose Garden, then sets out across the country before circling back towards home, with a show in Seattle at KeyArena Dec. 12.

Macklemore and Lewis have dominated the Billboard charts this year, scoring two No. 1 hits with "Thrift Shop" and "Can't Hold Us." They're the first in the history of the Hot 100 to reach the top spot with their first two singles.

The group's meteoric rise is evident by the venues they're expected to pack for their first-ever arena tour. Among the highlights are a two-night stand at Madison Square Garden in New York, the TD Garden in Boston, and Staples Center in Los Angeles. It's an amazing rise from just last October, when the duo headlined Seattle's WaMu Theater.

Tickets for the KeyArena show and all the tour dates go on sale Tuesday direct from the Macklemore & Ryan Lewis website .
