This isn’t the first time that a crowd of die hard MGK fans have caused the cops to intervene…Machine Gun Kelly’s performance at The National Guard Armory in St. Cloud, Minnesota was halted by local law enforcement after the venue failed to secure proper security. Those in the frenzied crowd awaiting the on-stage antics of the Bad Boy signee and guests Bone-Thugs-N-Harmony were disappointed when the Armory’s staff called the police to announce the event’s cancellation and to disperse a crowd of several hundred. It seems like the concert promoters were to blame as they failed to deliver on the security measures that were promised to the venue. Unfortunately for fans that wanted to “lace up,” they were led on a wild goose chase after the venue that had originally been promoted, Hallenbeck Hall, was switched to the Armory merely hours before the show was scheduled to take place. As police broke up the crowd, a rumor then spread that MGK would perform at the venue D.B. Searle’s, but this also never happened. Oddly enough, someone besides the cops sprayed mace at the crowd, according to the St. Cloud Times No injuries were reported and no arrests were made.
On the subject, MGK told XXL, “I appreciate everybody coming out to the show in St. Cloud last night…Unfortunately the show was cancelled because of security issues at the venue that were beyond our control. I will definitely be back in Minnesota soon. Lace up!”
