Shows and festivals are coming back, as we discuss nearly weekly here at Ghost Cult. Live Nation is often the scourge of concert goers since they service all of the tours and own many of the venues worldwide in the music business. To celebrate the return of live music and honestly, our social life, Live Nation are offering $20 “All-In” tickets for nearly 1,000 shows from tons of artists, such as Slipknot, Korn, Judas Priest, Megadeth, Alice Cooper, Rise Against, 311, Coheed and Cambria, Alanis Morissette, KISS, The Black Crowes, and more!
Whether you know him from his decade-long rap career, role as Felix in Birdbox, spot-on portrayal of Tommy Lee in The Dirt, comedian Pete Davidson’s BFF, or Megan Fox’s new beau, Machine Gun Kelly, born Colson Baker, has left footprints across the entertainment industry. Hot off a summer full of home-recorded covers and his first MTV Video Music Award, MGK takes another step in a new direction with his fifth studio album, Tickets to My Downfall (Bad Boy/Interscope), wearing his heart on his sleeve for 13 tracks (and 2 interludes) of pop-punk magic. Most fittingly, the new release was executively produced by Blink 182’s Travis Barker, who Baker first collaborated with last summer on “I Think I’m Okay,” along with Brit bud Yungblud. It’s no surprise the album sounds as if it could have been born during the early-2000’s pop-punk heyday. Though TTMD is a change of pace from MGK’s typical style, it does not fully abandon his roots, highlighting a multitude of hip-hop guests and beats, party songs, and pop anthems. In fact, he has consistently cited various rock acts as influences, so it was only a matter of time until he fully submerged himself in the genre.
