Rapper Machine Gun Kelly to Perform at House of Blues in November

Concert Announcement


  • Paige Margulies
Better known as Machine Gun Kelly, Cleveland-based rapper Richard Colson Baker has had a busy couple of years. Last year, he dropped General Admission, the long-delayed follow-up album to 2012’s Lace Up and played a few special local CD release shows when the album first came out.

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.

MGK somehow also found time to nab roles in a few major motion pictures, including the cyber thriller Nerve, in which he holds his own alongside Dave Franco and Emma Roberts, and the Sundance hit The Land.

The popular rapper and actor will play House of Blues on Nov. 21 and 22. Tickets for the shows go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday.
