Machine Gun Kelly will perform Hotel Diablo and Tickets To My Downfall in full at Los Angeles’ Roxy next month.

To celebrate the release of his new pop-punk album Tickets To My Downfall, Machine Gun Kelly has announced two livestream gigs – the first of which will include a full performance of the record in its entirety.

On October 1, MGK will be joined by blink-182 drummer Travis Barker (who executive produced Tickets…) for a livestream at Los Angeles’ Roxy. Then, the following week on October 8, he’ll performing his fourth album Hotel Diablo in full from the same venue.

It makes perfect sense why Machine Gun Kelly has chosen both Tickets To My Downfall and Hotel Diablo in particular to perform live. Speaking to Kerrang! recently, he explained of the transition between the two records: “[Hotel Diablo] coincides perfectly with Tickets To My Downfall because it starts out purely a rap project, and then divulges into the deepest parts of my mind, soul, my past, revealing things that I’m like, I’m probably this way because of this.’ And then it does this beautiful transition into the last song being I Think I’m OKAY, which is a pop-punk song. 

The deepest, most honest parts of your thoughts is Hotel Diablo, and it ends by being like, You know what? I think I’m okay. I’m okay with all of this – and now I’m going to make the project that’s for myself and others who accept that they’re just different.’”
