Concert Announcement

Update: Because his Dec. 20 House of Blues show sold out so quickly, rapper Machine Gun Kelly has added an additional show and will also perform at the club on Dec. 21. Those tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday.

Original Post 11/5/2015: Better known as Machine Gun Kelly, Cleveland-based rapper Richard Colson Baker just dropped General Admission, the long-delayed follow-up album to 2012’s Lace Up. He played a few special local CD release shows when the album came out and is spending the month playing shows throughout Europe. The album did well in its first week; it debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200, reportedly selling some 50,000 copies in the first week of release. Now, MGK has announced a House of Blues gig. He plays the club on Dec. 20. Tickets go sale at 10 a.m. tomorrow.
