Machine Gun Kelly + Yungblud Perform Atop Tour Bus, Discuss Potential EP
Machine Gun Kelly, Yungblud and Travis Barker recently released the single “I Think I’m Okay,” and by all accounts that sentiment still continues amongst the collaborators. In fact, after separate shows in the L.A. area, Machine Gun Kelly and Yungblud united for an after show at the Roxy last night (June 19) that carried over to an impromptu bus top performance.
As shared in the TMZ video below, throngs of fans waited outside of Kelly’s tour bus and when he spotted Yungblud, the two musicians climbed on top of Kelly’s touring vehicle and led fans in a sing-along. However, after the performance, they had a little trouble figuring out how to get down, but once again, the fans offered some helpful hands.
The two musicians then made their way inside the On The Rox club, where Barker awaited. The drummer was in town as Blink-182 prepare to play a secret show Thursday night (June 20) in Los Angeles. All three performed the song for the audience at the show. Watch a bit of that below from TMZ.
Though the three musicians collaborated on “I Think I’m Okay,” it’s possible there’s more music coming, but it may depend on a little help. As Yungblud told NME, “We’ve spoken about it. We love working together so much that we’ve said if the music video gets 100 million views and the song goes platinum then me, Travis and Machine Gun Kelly will do an EP together and potentially a tour.”
Speaking about how the collaboration came about, Yungblud recalled, “It was kinda weird, man. [MGK] just DM’d me his number and then rung me. He was like, ‘Yo dude. I love that you’re doing rock in a way that’s kind of reinvigorating young people in America.’ I was so humbled by it. Kelz said he wanted to do a rock song and all his mates, like Banks and a few other people, were apparently like, ‘This kid’s the one to do it with.’ So we went to his house, lit up a joint and then we fucking wrote it. We did the song in like 15 minutes.”
