  • Machine Gun Kelly Arrested for Flash Mob at Cleveland Mall (Billboard)

    Cleveland rapper Machine Gun Kelly , recently signed to Diddy's Bad Boy label, was arrested Saturday (Aug. 20) after organizing a flash mob that brought hundreds of screaming fans to Cleveland's South Park Mall. Watch the scene unfold below, in a video that chronicles the flash mob from entrance to arrest to prison release.

    It all started on Twitter , when Kelly tweeted  to his 70,000-plus followers, "I'm thinking about doing a flash mob at a mall or something tomorrow lol cleveland should we do one while I'm home?" followed by a flurry of posts over the course of three hours, deciding the location and explaining what everyone would do.

    Kelly tweeted , "No one move til you hear 'Cleveland' start, once it starts run to whatever table i'm at and Lets bust a mid-mall crowd surf and RAGE HARD!!!" and then  "ok, see yall tomorrow. bring funny #powerRAGER disguises, i'll bring the camera, and don't move/talk till the song plays at 5pm in foodcourt" on Friday night.

    Video shows Machine Gun Kelly shouting to his fans from a food court table. He is then pulled down and handcuffed by uniformed and plain-clothes police officers, who lead him away from the scene, as the rapper's fans continue to cheer and run throughout the suburban mall.

    The flash mob was set for 5 p.m., and by 6:46 p.m., Machine Gun Kelly's management had posted  on Twitter, letting fans know that "MGK and the boys" were in a holding cell and to look for an update soon, along with the hashtag #FreeMGK.

    A tweet  was posted announcing the group's release around 8 p.m., and soon after Kelly tweeted , "If havin fun with my fans and bringin the rage back to my hometown means I have to be arrested...then keep pullin the cuffs out #iwontstop."

  • Guns N' Roses Plot First U.S. Tour in 5 Years

    Veteran rockers Guns N' Roses are heading back on the road for their first major U.S. tour in 5 years, the band announced on Wednesday. The Axl Rose-fronted group will play more than 30 concerts, starting Oct. 28 at Orlando's Amway Center Arena, and then wind through markets small (Greenville, SC) and large (Chicago).

    To warm up for the road trip (sponsored by Monster Energy), Guns will first headline the last day of the Rock in Rio festival in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Oct. 2. They spent much of 2010 on a world tour that spanned South America, Canada and Europe.

    Their sets at last year's Reading and Leeds festivals did not go over well, however. At both, the band showed up late and received choruses of boos from the crowd. Rose even declared "war" on Leeds organizers for cutting the band's set short.

    Aside from Rose, the ever-fluid Guns N' Roses lineup includes keyboardists Dizzy Reed and Chris Pitman, guitarists DJ Ashba, Ron "Bumblefoot" Thal and Richard Fortus, longtime bassist Tommy Stinson, and Frank Ferrer on drums.

    The band has not released an album since 2008's "Chinese Democracy," which peaked at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart.

    The Tour Will Visit the Following Cities:
      Oct. 28: Orlando (Amway Center Arena)
      Oct. 29: Miami (American Airlines Arena)
      Oct. 31: Greenville, SC (Bi-Lo Center Arena)
      Nov. 2: Atlanta (Phillips Arena)
      Houston
      Nov. 5: Dallas (Gexa Energy Pavillion)
      Omaha, NE
      Tulsa, OK
      Nov. 12: Kansas City, MO (Sprint Center Arena)
      Nov. 13: Minneapolis (Target Center Arena)
      Chicago (All State Arena)
      East Rutherford, NJ
      Hartford, CT
      Wilkes-Barre, PA
      Worcester, MA
      Camden, NJ
      Detroit
