Machine Gun Kelly just wrapped up his Tickets to My Downfall tour over the weekend, but he’s already reminiscing.

In a tweet Tuesday, Kelly writes, “The best tour I’ve ever had is over and now I’m an emotional wreck.”

The tour, which concluded on Halloween night in Connecticut, featured Kelly playing nearly the entirety of Tickets, his 2020 Travis Barker-produced album that found the former rapper’s music transitioning to a pop-punk sound.

With many shows selling out, it’s easy to see why MGK would declare the tour to be his best. However, the run wasn’t without a few bumps in the road. During his set at Chicago’s Riot Fest, Kelly dissed beloved metal institution Slipknot as “old weird dudes with masks,” which led to the crowds at a subsequent rock festival to boo him.

Kelly is set to return to the live stage later this year for a homecoming Cleveland concert on December 18. He’s also working on a new album called Born with Horns, which will again be produced by Barker.
