Love him, hate him, feud with him, seen him at The Rave this past fall, or think he’s the living embodiment of weed, pop-punk juggernaut Machine Gun Kelly will headline Summerfest on Friday, July 1, playing the American Family Insurance Amphitheater. Joining Kelly on his “Mainstream Sellout Tour” will be none other than Avril Lavigne! Oh, and iann dior, too.

Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, March 25, at 10 a.m. Get them HERE.

Here’s a press release, preceded by a note that, despite what Rolling Stone says, the cover of Kelly’s Mainstream Sellout doesn’t really look all that similar to the cover of Japanese Breakfast’s Jubilee. Actually, let’s start with the Weird Al parody of Lavigne’s “Complicated,” which is about constipation, incest, and decapitation:

Today, Machine Gun Kelly has announced his international Mainstream Sellout Tour — a colossal 52 arena run across North America and Europe featuring an incredible roster of special guests including Avril Lavigne, Travis Barker, blackbear, Trippie Redd, WILLOW, iann dior, PVRIS and 44phantom on select dates. The multi-platinum selling artist’s first ever arena tour will also feature a special hometown stadium performance in Cleveland, OH at FirstEnergy Stadium, the largest venue in the city. The genre-bending performer has amassed over 15.5 billion streams online and sold over 10 million album units. Full routing and details on special guests by city below.

Produced by Live Nation, the North American leg of the tour kicks off this June at Moody Center in Austin, making stops in Miami, Boston, Phoenix, Los Angeles and more before wrapping up in Cleveland at FirstEnergy Stadium on August 13th. The 15-stop European leg kicks off on September 17th at the Lanxess Arena in Cologne, making stops in Prague, Paris, London and more before wrapping up in Amsterdam at AFAS Live on October 12th.
