Dua Lipa headlines Lollapalooza Day 2


The second day of Chicago’s iconic Lollapalooza Festival had the proper mixture of punk rock and electronic pop, due to headliners Machine Gun Kelly and Dua Lipa.

With a cigarette in hand and the studded pink leather biker jacket of dreams, MGK stepped out onto the Bud Light Seltzer stage for an evening the gang will always remember.

The rocker treated fans to hits from his 2020 studio album “Tickets To My Downfall” in addition to his latest release, “Mainstream Sellout.”

The musician — whose real name is Colson Baker — took a moment to reflect how far he’s come, remembering when he played in the course of the daytime 1.30 p.m. slot last 12 months.

“I’ve been waiting for this moment an extended f–ing time,” he told the gang.

MGK later teased he’d be “bringing friends out” — prompting major screams from the audience.

Fans were ecstatic to see Iann Dior show up for MGK’s “Fake Love Don’t Last” track, with 17-year-old musician Glaive later surprising fans to sing “More Than Life” with the rocker.

And if screams were anything to go by, it seems as if the gang’s favorite guest appearance was none apart from punk rocker Avril Lavigne, who got here out to sing the track “Bois Lie” with MGK — a song the pair collaborated on earlier this 12 months.

MGK later went on to deliver electric performances of his mega hits “Floor 13” and “el Diablo.”

Elsewhere, British superstar Dua Lipa was entertaining a unique crowd nearby.

Taking to the T-Mobile Stage, the singer kicked things off together with her hit track “Physical” from her Grammy Award-winning 2020 album “Future Nostalgia” which houses some major disco and electronic pop hits.

Wearing a glitter jumpsuit, Lipa’s electric set flowed into “Love Again” and “Levitating” — each songs being from her 2020 album.

She later performed “Cold Heart” — a song she recorded with Elton John. And while the Rocketman wasn’t in attendance, he did appear on the large screen in a recorded video to sing along to his part.

Very similar to MGK, Dua Lipa took a moment to reflect on her music journey as she recalled first acting at Lollapalooza’s small stage at a 2 p.m. slot in 2017.

Before capping off the night together with her hit song “Don’t Start Now,” the singer asked fans to “arise for ladies’s rights, arise against racial injustice, arise for the LGBTQ community, and arise for one another.”

Day 2 also saw R&B superstar Tinashe take to the stage, firing things off together with her 2014 track “2 On.”

She later performed one other hit from her debut album “Aquarius” — this time, it was “All Hands on Deck” — a track that proved to be a serious hit amongst the gang.

The singer told fans her Lollapalooza stint this 12 months was special for a lot of reasons apart from the very fact it was her first. She revealed that her proud family was in attendance, including her grandma.
