Last week, Machine Gun Kelly performed in his hometown Cleveland, Ohio, for the final performance of his North American tour in support of his most recent album, “Mainstream Sellout.”
Stunts such as zip-lining across the stadium and smashing glass on his own face happened at the Machine Gun Kelly Cleveland Concert.
The rapper-turned-pop-punk sensation zip-lined across FirstEnergy Stadium in Cleveland on Saturday night (August 13), which is the length of a football field. MGK posted a video showing himself moving from one end of the stadium to the other, flying high above spectators’ heads.
He rapped a couple of bars from his 2010 song: “Cleveland fit, Cleveland hat / Anywhere I go is where Cleveland’s at / So when the world ends, I think you’ll know where we’ll be at.” It fit the scene perfectly.

The stunt, according to a source close to the singer, was Kelly’s idea and was put together in under 24 hours, especially for the Machine Gun Kelly Cleveland Concert.
In another instance during the performance, MGK hit his face with a wine glass for the second time in as many months. After the event, he subsequently shared a video of himself on social media with blood streaming down his face with the caption, “Oh my God, Cleveland. That was fucking insane.
During the encore, Kelly addressed the crowd, stating, “They’re in my ears right now and they’re saying that if we don’t stop the concert right now, we’re going to get fined $70,000 for every 10 minutes that we continue.” Video from the event shows Kelly saying this to the crowd.
“You know what I say to that? We aren’t stopping this concert for shit. I’m rich, bitch,” he exclaimed before hitting the glass against his forehead making the Machine Gun Kelly Cleveland Concert even crazier.\
Avril Lavigne joined Kelly for their duet “Bois Lie,” which is off Lavigne’s most recent album “Love Sux,” at the Cleveland performance over the weekend. Later in the performance, Travis Barker joined Kelly for a few songs as well. The Blink-182 drummer had rejoined the tour in defiance of a doctor’s instructions after being hospitalized for pancreatitis in June. Next month, Kelly will begin a tour of Europe and the UK.
