After months of ruling the music press with never-ending headlines relating to his verbal fisticuffs and unexpected collaborations with various metal icons, it looks like Machine Gun Kelly has now set his sights on full world domination.

Today, (March 21), the rapper-gone-rocker has announced a massive global tour with multiple highly-lauded special guests.

In support of his upcoming new album, Mainstream Sellout, due to arrive on March 25, the Mainstream Sellout Tour will see MGK perform alongside several fresh and familiar faces of the pop punk world, including Avril Lavigne, Blink-182 drummer turned punk rock mogul Travis Barker, blackbear, Trippie Redd, Willow, iann dior, PVRIS and 44phantom.

The North American leg of the tour kicks off this June at Moody Center in Austin, making stops in Miami, Boston, Phoenix, Los Angeles and more before coming to an end in Cleveland at FirstEnergy Stadium on August 13.

The 15-stop European leg starts on September 17 at the Lanxess Arena in Cologne, and will see Kells and crew perform in Prague, Paris, London and more before wrapping up in Amsterdam at AFAS Live on October 12.
