On Saturday night, Machine Gun Kelly made his second ever Toronto stop as he came to the Sound Academy to lace up with his fans. Coming out to deafening chants of ‘MGK’ from the crowd, Kelly turned the Sound Academy upside down as he preformed hits from his Lace Up and Rage Pack mixtapes. MGK put on a performance that would rival punk-rock bands as he dove into the crowd, brought female fans onstage to undress and offered a heartfelt thank you to everyone in attendance for making this one of his most memorable tour stops.
He even added to the punk ambiance by covering ‘What’s My Age Again‘ by Blink-182 and coming onstage to Sum 41. Always the rager, MGK continued to preform even when he slipped and fell, causing him to spread the blood from his cut into “war paint” under his eyes. Unfortunately, Waka Flocka Flame (who was in town on Friday) didn’t come out for the closing performance of Wild Boy because, according to Kelly “he wanted 10k to come preform this song, and we don’t have that kind of money.”
