No plug necessary. Energy personified. Grammy-nominated Machine Gun Kelly who is an atomic force in music, entertainment, film and fashion, is heading to the OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino on Sept. 3.
In 2020, the Cleveland native eclipsed genre expectations releasing a rock/pop punk album, the widely acclaimed “Tickets to My Downfall.” The Platinum album topped the Billboard 200 and became his first No. 1 effort. “Tickets to My Downfall” landed 18 tracks on the Hot Rock Songs chart and spawned two No. 1 songs on the alternative side, with "bloody valentine" and "my ex’s best friend," which both went Platinum. In 2022, he followed with “Mainstream Sellout,” his second album to hit No. 1 on the Billboard 200, cementing his status as a chart-topping artist.
He is no stranger to awards, as a nominee for a 2023 Grammy Award for Best Rock Album, named as one of 2022’s “Time 100 Next,” winner of the American Music Award for Favorite Rock Artist in 2022 and 2021, the Billboard Music Award for Top Rock Artist and Top Rock Album in 2021, iHeartRadio Music Award for Alternative Artist of the Year in 2022 and Alternative Rock Album of the Year in 2021, MTV Video Music Award for Best Alternative in 2021 and 2020, along with countless nominations and wins in many other categories over several years.
In an interview with Swedish radio station P4, Rolling Stones’ lead singer Mick Jagger praised Machine Gun Kelly: “In rock music you need energy, and there have not been a lot of new rock singers around. Now there are a few. That kind of post-punk vibe makes me think there is still a bit of life in rock and roll,” he said.
Most recently, Machine Gun Kelly appeared in “Bupkis” – a comedy TV series that follows Pete Davidson’s life. The show airs on Peacock. He has also appeared in several films, including 2016's “Nerve,” 2018's “Bird Box,” 2019’s “The Dirt” (playing Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee), 2020's “Project Power” and 2021's “The Last Son.” TV appearances include “Saturday Night Live,” “The Voice,” “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “The Late Late Show with James Cordon,” “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” “106 & Park,” “Good Morning America,” and several other programs and award shows.
“Machine Gun Kelly has such a dedicated fan base, and his shows always entertain,” said Cathy Price, vice president of marketing for Niagara Casinos. “The OLG Stage at Fallsview Casino is a fantastic venue to feel the energy of this show with seats no further than 150 feet away.”
Machine Gun Kelly will perform at 8 p.m. September 3. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, June 9, at https://www.ticketmaster.ca.
