Machine Gun Kelly to Perform at Iconic London Venue

Machine Gun Kelly is scheduled to play a special one-off show at London's iconic Royal Albert Hall.

The pop-punk star - real name is Colson Baker - is set to headline the world-famous concert hall in the UK on May 31, 2023.

Since the hall's opening by Queen Victoria in 1871, the world's leading artists from many performance genres have appeared on its stage. His performance follows in the footsteps of rock and metal legends such as Jimi Hendrix, Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin.

Director of Programming at the Royal Albert Hall, Matthew Todd, commented: "The Hall has been a home for trailblazers, innovators and cultural icons since we opened in 1871. We couldn't be more excited to welcome MGK later this year, one of the leading artists of his generation and someone that has evolved constantly as the best artists do."

Tickets go on general sale at 10am here on Friday, February 10.

Meanwhile, the rapper-turned-rocker has been back in the studio working on new music. Last week he tweeted: "i head banged the demons out my body in the studio last night (sic)".

The music star's last studio album was 2022's Mainstream Sellout, which lost out on Best Rock Album to Ozzy Osbourne's Patient Number 9 at the Grammy Awards (watch him on the red carpet below) on Sunday, February 5.

MGK's fiancée, Hollywood actress Megan Fox, praised her future husband for the gracious way he handled losing, writing: "Congratulations on being in the very small percentage of artists who have received a Grammy nomination.

"You have handled this process with a grace and maturity that I haven't seen from you before and I'm so proud of you. Watching you walk in humility and gratitude, watching you grow into yourself and become a better man is an immeasurably more satisfying experience than watching you accept an award."

She added: "Although those will come… and this is irrelevant I guess but I will just never ever get over how beautiful your face is. I hope one day you'll see yourself the way I see you. I love you and I'll keep this memory of you forever."
