Watch footage from Machine Gun Kelly’s wild surprise set at Lollapalooza
MGK turned up at the packed festival on July 31 for an ‘intimate’ Bud Light Seltzer Sessions show, performing 10 songs focusing predominantly on last year’s Tickets To My Downfall album, plus a cover of Paramore’s Misery Business, and 2019 mega single I Think I’m OKAY.
According to Billboard, the rowdy-looking set was packed with a crowd “20 times” bigger than what the space allowed for – so it makes sense that Kells has to do some clambering up and over the rafters to allow everyone there a glimpse of the chaos…
Check out the 10-song setlist:
1. kiss kiss
2. Misery Business (Paramore cover)
3. concert for aliens
4. drunk face
5. my ex’s best friend
6. I Think I’m OKAY
7. forget me too
8. all I know
9. love race
10. bloody valentine

MGK recently revealed that he’s been working on new music which he plans to drop this month. Talking on Instagram Live, he said that he’s been in the studio with blink-182 drummer Travis Barker, working on the follow-up to last year’s Tickets To My Downfall.
“I’ve been filming a movie this month and getting ready for the next album rollout and this tour,” he confirmed. “I’m excited for the album; you know, me and Travis, we got back in [to the studio] and everything’s just falling into place and I feel really happy with everything.”

Though some festival-goers booed and flipped-off MGK at Louder Than Life, he says that “all I saw was 20,000 amazing fans at the festival singing every word and 20 angry ones”.
Watch the video for IDLES’ new single The Beachland Ballroom – the “most important song” on their upcoming album Crawler, according to vocalist Joe Talbot.
