If you dare to attend a LMFAO concert, be prepared for inflatable palm trees, shuffling zebras and maybe, just maybe, our president wiggling.
“If Obama wants to come out and wiggle, you know, have our people talk with his people. Let’s get started,” RedFoo said.
We found out all about this duos plans for their next tour, “Redfoo and Cherrytree Present: Sorry for Party Rocking Tour Featuring LMFAO and the Party Rock Crew and Special Guests,” today during a teleconference. Joining the group on the road will be Far East Movement, The Quest Crew, Sidney Samson, Eva Simmons and Natalia Kills.
The 26-date tour begins in Columbus, Ohio, on May 22 and ends in Toronto on July 4, and the two only have one rule for their show: “no rules.”
“Sometimes you might get a grownup hot dog shuffling,” Redfoo said. “Why? Because there is no reason why, that is exactly why; because it makes you feel like you’re in a dream, a trance.”
Redfoo’s nephew and the other half of LMFAO, SkyBlu, advised concertgoers to use the show as an excuse to let loose. “No matter what job you got, no matter what people are telling you, when you come to the concert you can just let it all go,” he said.
LMFAO was created from the duo’s true characteristics. The group explained that they love making music and using humor as a tool to make people happy, even if that means wiggling in a Speedo.
“We were always ‘Sexy And I Know It’ walking around. This is the reason why I can wiggle in a Speedo, because I’m sexy and I know it, baby. It’s a mindset and we’ve always felt we were #1 before we got #1,” Redfoo said.
This mindset has led LMFAO to a Grammy nomination and the top of the Billboard charts. So far, LMFAO’s newest album, Sorry for Party Rocking, has gone Gold and produced two hit singles so far, “Party Rock Anthem” and “Sexy And I Know It,” that have partied their way up to the #1 spot on the Top 40 radio charts.
The son and grandson of Berry Gordy took the legend’s advice to help them get where they are today. SkyBlu said his favorite lesson learned from his grandfather is, “Logic is boss.”
“If something doesn’t make sense, no matter who’s throwing down the orders, you shouldn’t do it,” he explained. “You gotta think logically in any decision you make especially big decisions, and especially when you’re leading a bunch of people and people depend on you.”
Although LMFAO may appear to be celebrating in all of the glory, they are taken aback by success. “It just feels good that we’ve reached a level of success that we always dreamed about and this is just the start for us, so we feel really blessed and grateful for everything that’s going on,” SkyBlu said. “It’s amazing to see how many people you affect around the whole globe. You can go anywhere, man, and people are affected by something that we created. So it’s just a beautiful thing.”
