Machine Gun Kelly announces new album and summer 2019 UK tour

The rapper's fourth album is expected this year

Machine Gun Kelly has announced the name of his forthcoming album and details of a summer UK tour.

The US rapper, who released the ‘Binge’ EP last September, has revealed that his new album is called ‘Hotel Diablo’. A release date is yet to be announced.

Kelly will also bring his Hotel Diablo World Tour across the pond in August. Kicking off in Glasgow, the stint will follow his appearance at this year’s Reading & Leeds festivals.

Dates will then take place in Manchester, Bristol, and Birmingham the following nights. The tour is set to conclude with a performance at London’s Electric Ballroom on August 31. Tickets go on sale to the public at 10am on April 5.

Machine Gun Kelly’s 2019 UK tour dates are as follows:


30 – BIRMINGHAM O2 Institute
31 – LONDON Electric Ballroom

Meanwhile, Kelly was recently among new additions to the R&L line-up. He will take to the Radio 1 Stage at the Bank Holiday dual-event – joining the likes of Chvrches, Bastille, and Billie Eilish.

In other news, the rapper’s ongoing beef with Eminem recently saw him brand Marshal Mathers’ ‘Killshot’ as a “weak ass song”.

The rap rivals were initially embroiled in a high profile feud last year after Slim Shady called out Kelly on ‘Not Alike’, which featured on his surprise album ‘Kamikaze’.

Aside from his music career, Kelly recently flexed his acting muscles – starring as Tommy Lee in the new Mötley Crüe biopic, The Dirt. The Netflix film also features Douglas Booth, Daniel Webber, and Iwan Rheon.
