Video from the event shows MGK being heckled throughout the gig and being met with a chorus of boos after finishing a song.

At one point in the show, MGK jumped down in front of the stage and got into a brief one-on-one altercation with a fan. Video shows a fan coming towards MGK, who then appears to push the singer before being grabbed by security and pulled away.

The two (separated by security) then got into a tussle as MGK appeared to throw a punch as he was being whisked away by security. The incident was reminiscent of one the one MGK had with Conor McGregor at the VMAs earlier in the month.

MGK’s set came just a week after he ripped Slipknot while performing at Riot Fest in Chicago.

“Hey, you want to know what I’m really happy that I’m not doing?” MGK told the crowd. “Being 50 years old wearing a f*****g weird mask on a f*****g stage, talking s***.”

A day after his Louder Than Life performance, Kelly took to Twitter to refute the notion that a lot of the crowd was booing him. “I don’t know why the media lies in their narrative against me all the time but all i saw was 20,000 amazing fans at the festival singing every word and 20 angry ones,” he wrote.
