Machine Gun Kelly in Concert at PPG Paints Arena (Tues., 8/2/22)

Machine Gun Kelly (MGK, née Richard Colson Baker) will play PPG Paints Arena. MGK is a rapper, musician, and actor from Cleveland who has touched multiple facets of pop culture. With Camila Cabello, he recorded “Bad Things,” which samples Fastball’s “Out of My Head,” in 2016. He was to open for Linkin Park on the band’s One More Light Tour, but the tour was canceled following the 2017 death of singer Chester Bennington. His acting credits include his portrayal of drummer Tommy Lee in The Dirt, a Netflix biopic of Mötley Crüe. 2020’s Tickets to My Downfall is his fifth album. It contains a more pop-punk sound, with Travis Barker, blink-182’s drummer, producing. Born with Horns followed in 2021 and in March, Kelly released his latest album, Mainstream Sellout. Kelly is engaged to actress Megan Fox. Travis Barker and Willow open. 7 p.m. 1001 Fifth Ave., Uptown. (C.M., R.H.)
