At this year’s Lollapalooza, local rapper Machine Gun Kelly put on a rousing performance in front of an enthusiastic audience of teens and twentysomethings, delivering one of the most aggressive sets of the entire festival.
Wearing a silver jacket, skinny black jeans and loafers, MGK clearly enjoyed his first-ever performance at Lolla.
“Middle fingers up,” he shouted at the start of a rowdy set that included a tribute to Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington, a friend of his who committed suicide earlier this year. MGK paid tribute to Bennington with a rendition of the Linkin Park tune “Number,” adding that the gray skies provided the right atmosphere for him to sing the track. It was a memorable performance.
Now, MGK has just announced that his Double XXMAS Show will come to Wolstein Center at 7 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 22.
The folks at Wolstein Center boast that it’s the rapper’s first “headline arena show” in his career.
Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday.
