We almost forgot what it feels like to get excited about announcing a concert for an artist that we love! Almost. Thanks to Colson Baker, we are experiencing all kinds of feels.

Machine Gun Kelly announced his 2021 'Tickets to My Downfall' U.S. tour dates this week, and the list includes Spokane, Washington. YAY, ROADTRIP!! And this isn't an arena show, it's actually going to be at the Spokane Pavilion in Riverfront Park on Tuesday, October 12th at 6:30 p.m. jxdn and carolesdaughter will open, which is the cherry on this very anticipated sundae!

Tickets start at $40 and are on sale this Friday, April 30th at 10 a.m. PST/11 a.m. Montana time online. Naturally there's an artist/fan pre-sale and premium tickets available through the promoter, which is AXS ticketing, you can find more info here.

Machine Gun Kelly made the successful transition from rapper to alternative pop/rock artist during the pandemic with the album "Tickets To My Downfall," and the songs "my ex's best friend" and "bloody valentine" specifically. Plus, I'd say once you collab with legendary drummer Travis Barker, you instantly gain street cred. I became a fan of MGK when he played Tommy Lee in the Motley Crue bio 'The Dirt,' I loved his work in it. I think critics hated 'The Dirt,' I really enjoyed it, right up my alley, and rad to learn some new info on Motley Crue, I recommend it for sure.

You're probably familiar with jxdn as a TikTok personality, or his song "So What!" or his many collaborations. carolesdaughter is also pretty new to the scene with her sweet sounding, but not so sweet song "Violent." Here's a great article on her if you'd like to learn a little more about the openers for MGK.
