- The NME Big Read: Machine Gun Kelly: “I’ve been jumping up and down on the table, believing in myself, for-fucking-ever”
Performing a 17-song set, MGK took a moment in the middle of the concert to lead the crowd through an acapella version of the Spongebob theme. The unexpected break was followed by live airings of ‘Forget Me Too’ and ‘Lonely’, both of which were played solo on acoustic guitar.
The nod to the animated Nickelodeon series came after Machine Gun Kelly was pictured donning Spongebob socks – check out the photos in the below tweet.

MGK’s latest studio album, ‘Tickets To My Downfall’, came out in September 2020.
Discussing what’s next, the rapper vowed in March to “keep breaking the mould” with his future material “and piss people off all over again”. He also cited Kanye West and Prince as two of his inspirations, adding that he hopes to leave a similar legacy as the latter.
An extensive US tour will follow in September and October, as well as a December homecoming gig at the Rocket Mortgage Fieldhouse – the biggest venue in Cleveland, Ohio.
