LIVE: Machine Gun Kelly @ Ancienne Belgique, Brussels

Following a slew of successful festival performances, rapper Machine Gun Kelly swiftly announced details of a club tour in support of new record bloom. The 27 Tour sees the performer descend upon 27 cities across the European mainland, including a half-full Ancienne Belgique in Brussels earlier this week. People slowly filled the sparsely packed room throughout DJ Umi‘s opening performance, with MGK’s dedicated throng of fans (complete with customized bandana’s) present all over. Opening his set on The Gunner, Machine Gun Kelly set the tone with his wild boy image, occasionally toning it down throughout when he pulled a slower cut out of the bag. He also chucked a rendition of Linkin Park’s Numb in and amongst his onstage repertoire, allowing it to form a bridge between his more rap-centric output and his rockier offshoots. New single Let You Go made for a highlight during the show, with hit single Bad Things also receiving a good reception. Dewi Mik went down to capture the night in its entirety, and you can find her shots below.
