A year ago, a video of two men wearing Speedos and flaunting funny, provocative and even sleazy dance moves surfaced on YouTube, and created quite a buzz. This was American pop outfit LMFAO’s video of their track Sexy and I know it that went on to become a party anthem the world over. The two-member Grammy-nominated band, which came together in 2006, comprises Stefan Kendal Gordy aka Redfoo and Skyler Husten Gordy aka Sky Blu.
And before they go on hiatus, one of the two band members — Sky Blu — will give India a glimpse of the band’s epic gigs as he sets a January date for a three-city tour of the country. The outfit’s website gives details about the tour titled “Who Came to Party?” and Sky Blu will perform at Amanora Park in Pune on January 27.
The band has two successful albums — Party Rock in 2009 and Sorry for Party Rocking in 2011 — to its credit, besides a number of popular dance tracks such as I’m in Miami Bitch and Party Rock Anthem.
