Machine Gun Kelly
O2 Ritz, Manchester
August 27th 2019
Louder Than War photographer Melanie Smith, captured American rap artist / actor Colson Baker better known as Machine Gun Kelly or MGK, when he stopped off in Manchester, as part of his ‘Hotel Diablo’ World Tour in support of his new concept album.
MGK appeared to a cheering, enthusiastic crowd, from a doorway (Hotel Diablo) on a huge raised platform, with stunning visual backdrops. The sold-out, explosive show was as hot as hell, as his fans reached fever pitch in the sweltering heat of the O2 Ritz.
