Mainstream Sellout Machine Gun Kelly at Forum: Rapper-turned-pop-punker Machine Gun Kelly brings his Mainstream Sellout tour, named after his latest album, to the Forum, and he’s bringing pop-punk princess Avril Lavigne along for the ride. Willow opens.
Machine Gun Kelly’s Life in Pink documentary was recently released, and a statement about it reads: “Machine Gun Kelly‘s Life In Pink is an in-depth look at the dramatic highs and lows of an artist chasing music’s top spot while tackling noise from the outside world, stardom, fatherhood and more. From creating his platinum-selling, Billboard No. 1 album Tickets to My Downfall, to his most recent No. 1 studio album, Mainstream Sellout, this is an all-access pass, that goes beyond the headlines, into the chaotic world of Machine Gun Kelly.
Meanwhile, he released the single “more than life” with glaive, of which a press release reads: “The song release also comes with its official music video, directed by Colin Tilley, the visionary filmmaker behind such music videos as Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s ‘WAP’ and Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Alright.’ In ‘more than life,’ MGK’s past pain ramps up to 10 as he sits before a neighborhood that slowly engulfs in flames and he and glaive are encased in cement and ash and vent their angst in the of a graveyard. The fiery video made its broadcast premiere on MTV Live, MTVU and on the Paramount Times Square billboards.”
You have to appreciate the self-deprecating humor in the album and tour name. Let’s see what he can do.
Mainstream Sellout Machine Gun Kelly at Forum: The event takes place at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, July 13 at the Kia Forum.
