The Empire State Building traditionally will light up during special occasions in New York City. If you happened to drive by it last night, you would have seen that it was lit up bright pink.

Many people weren’t sure of the reasoning behind the decision, but if you attended a concert at Madison Square Garden, then you knew exactly why and even had the opportunity to watch the light switch get flipped live.

The Empire State Building was lit up in a bright pink color last night due to musician Machine Gun Kelly being in town for the night. MGK took his Mainstream Sellout Tour to The Garden and I guess selling out MSG comes with some perks, such as choosing what color to light the night sky with.

If you know anything about Machine Gun Kelly, you know he created his whole brand around the color pink. The cover for his recent #1 album Mainstream Sellout even has pink tomatoes being thrown at him to acknowledge his controversial A-list status.

He now has pink hair and a brand new documentary out on Hulu called, “Machine Gun Kelly’s Life In Pink.”

So in front of a sold-out crowd last night at MSG, he let everyone know that once he hit a particular switch, all of New York will know that Machine Gun Kelly has left his mark by lighting up the skies pink & the crowd went nuts!
