For the past couple years around the fall/winter season, Machine Gun Kelly makes his way across Canada on tour. Every year he comes up north, the shows get better and better. This being the first I was privy to going too, I knew I was in for a great night. You definitely get your money’s worth when going to an MGK show. The turn up is inevitable. The Cleveland, Ohio artist started to rise to success after releasing his project “100 Words and Running”. From 2010 to 2011 is when everything started to change for the better and the opportunities have been growing ever since. Canada definitely loves it when he hits the country to perform, social media goes crazy! Starting on the east coast of Canada and working his way west, MGK ends his tour in Ohio with four final shows before the holidays.

It’s been a long time coming. Myself, I can’t recall the last time TIP was in Canada on tour, nor have I ever been to a show of his. For ninety nine percent of the people waiting in the cold Thursday, Nov. 13th outside London Music Hall to witness what was deemed to be a show to remember, I’ll bet it was the same thing. You could sense a feeling of anxiousness among the concert goers. Excitement was in the air. Everyone dressed to the max. Of course everyone had to show out for the T.I. show. Following the hype as he made his way across Canada on his Paperwork tour promoting his ninth studio album released on Columbia Records, it was clear we were in for a treat though no one could of guessed we were in for what could go down as one of the best shows to hit London this year. It’s not just myself saying that either. Though I have been to every show in the city this year, so you can trust it’s a valid opinion.

On Saturday October 11th, Top Dawg Entertainment’s Ab-Soul brought his ‘These Days’ tour to the Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto. Soul seems to be the underdog on the label. Unlike his label mates Kendrick Lamar and Schoolboy Q who have both had solo tours, this was Ab-Soul’s first time headlining a solo tour – it did not disappoint. The night began with sets from Atlanta duo, Earthgang and Toronto’s own Jimmy B.

Bas headlined his first show in Toronto this past month as part of his Last Winter Tour. We are able to capture Bas at Get Fresh for his meet and greet and we asked the FIENDS how they came across Bas, what was the first song that got their attention and their favourite song they wanted to see live. If you missed out make sure to watch/read our interview with Bas earlier this year on video and there’s an article version when J.Cole did a show at the London Music Hall.
