T-Mobile CEO John Legere will get his Macklemore and Ryan Lewis fix after all.
T-Mobile said Thursday that it's sponsoring a special performance by the Grammy-nominated artists for 1,400 Los Angeles-area fans. The concert will be held on January 23, with tickets to go on sale on January 17.

Legere, of course, made headlines at the Consumer Electronics Show last week when he crashed a private party hosted by AT&T. The musical guest for the party: Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.
After Legere was spotted and outed by this reporter, security subsequently escorted Legere out of the hotel.
Legere insisted he just wanted to see Macklemore perform, and indeed got his invitation from the rapper's agent, but it's clear things turned out just rosy for him. His ejection from the party was the talk of the trade show, and he utilized the incident to great effect during the company's press conference, even making T-shirts saying he just wanted to see Macklemore.
"My appreciation for Macklemore and Ryan Lewis seems to be the worst-kept secret in the social hemisphere," Legere said in a statement.
