It was a huge night at Scotiabank Area as Machine Gun Kelly brought his Mainstream Sellout Tour to Toronto! The Actor/Singer has been making headlines of late, punctuated also by his relationship with Actress Megan Fox and recently smashing glass on his face! And fans came out in droves to hear his hits “my ex’s best friend”, “I Think I’m OKAY”, “forget me too” and more. Following the Show, hoards of fans crowded around his Tour Bus outside the venue for a chance to get close to him and some lucky fans got their signs and body parts signed even! He partied with the likes of Drake and The Weeknd, both in-town at a private event north of the City following the Show.
Supporting him were iconic Avril Lavigne, who just concluded her own Canadian Bite Me Tour in May, highlighted by an appearance at the JUNO Awards in Toronto! Lavigne was back again, drawing many of her own fans out to the Show, joining Machine Gun Kelly on-stage for “Bois Lie“, plus performing an hour-long set of her hits. We were extremely lucky to get a Snap with Lavigne. She was joined by her family on her Tour Bus as they head to the Tour’s next stop in Kansas City.
Opening the Show was up-and-comer Iann Dior, whom like Machine Gun Kelly, also hails from Texas. Dior among others, performed his hits “Emotions”, “Live Fast Die Numb” and more. Dior drew a big crowd following the Show, graciously stopping to pose for Selfies by his Tour Bus!
Machine Gun Kelly recently recruited popular British Guitarist Sophie Lloyd to his Tour and she put-on a scene-stealing display, placing all eyes on her during her skilful guitar solos. She was amazing also to stop for fans after the Show, many as excited to see her as the Supporting Acts!
