US rapper Machine Gun Kelly to tour New Zealand


After a stand-out slot at this year’s Bay Dreams Festival, US hip-hop artist Machine Gun Kelly is bringing his own headline tour to New Zealand.

The Cleveland rapper and actor, whose real name is Colson Baker, began making waves in 2010 with his mixtape LACE UP, which led to a record deal with the famed Bad Boy Records and his debut LP of the same name. His second album GENERAL ADMISSION followed in 2015, as did his 2016 smash hit with Camila Cabello, ‘Bad Things’, which peaked at #4 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The track laid the foundations for the release of  his third full-length album, BLOOM, featuring James Arthur, Quavo, Hailee Steinfeldand Ty Dolla $ign.
MGK - who hit headlines recently with news that he would be playing Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee in Netflix’s adaptation of the band’s biography ‘The Dirt’ - proved to be one of the most popular sets at Bay Dreams in early January.
