Cleveland native, Machine Gun Kelly, has had a very exciting year. When he said he was going to put Cleveland on the map, he wasn’t kidding. From touring the world, dropping an album, modeling, and filming numerous different TV and movie roles, he’s finally returning home. This Friday, December 22nd, will be the “XXMAS” show, held at the Wolstein Center. The show is now officially sold out, according to Ticketmaster.
Kells, as his fans call him, recently dropped two new songs, “The Break Up” and “Home”, both of which we can expect to hear at the show. “Home” includes features from X Ambassadors and Bebe Rexha, and they performed the song live on The Voice earlier this month. Along with the new music, Kells has recently joined the cast of an original Netflix thriller series called “Bird Box,” starring Sandra Bullock.
“The Wolstein Center and Cleveland State University are always excited to be apart of an Artists historical day, especially when the artist is a Cleveland native such as Machine Gun Kelly.” A Cleveland State University Representative said.
From growing up being a Linkin Park fan, Kells was very excited to be an opening act on their “One More Light” world tour this past summer. Unfortunately, the lead singer, Chester Bennington, lost his battle to depression over summer and passed away. Kells now pays tribute to Chester at his shows, by performing one of the bands hit songs, “Numb”.
As Kells mentions in one of his songs, “I’m home-bred, hometown, been around the world, I’m back now,” and we definitely can’t wait. It seems as if his Christmas just got a lot better and will be spent with 7,000 of his hometown friends, at his first arena show as a headliner.
We have messages in with Machine Gun Kelly looking for comments on this historic day, it will be added once we receive them.
