Warped Tour preview: Machine Gun Kelly's return to St. Petersburg highlights 2012 lineup
Are we crazy, or is this the best Vans Warped Tour lineup in years?
The local stop, which arrives Sunday at Vinoy Waterfront Park in St. Petersburg, features performances by New Found Glory, Taking Back Sunday, All Time Low, Lostprophets, Senses Fail, Yellowcard, Pierce the Veil, Breathe Carolina, We the Kings, Dead Sara and Falling In Reverse.
But as they have been all year around these parts, all eyes will be on rapper Machine Gun Kelly. So far in 2011, MGK has already brought down the house at performances at the State Theatre, Hawaiian Village and Coachman Park for Wild Splash. The Wild Boy has been arrested, he's nearly incited riots and he's turned himself into a can't-miss, can't-look-away performer. He may be a rapper, but he also might be the breakout star of this year's Warped Tour.
