LMFAO Receives Nominations In 17 Categories For The 2012 Billboard Music Awards
THE PARTY ROCKERS WILL PERFORM ON THE AWARDS BROADCAST MAY 20TH
Last week was a busy one for Party Rock/will.i.am/Cherrytree/Interscope recording artists LMFAO who performed their official apology anthem "Sorry For Party Rocking" on American Idol Thursday night in a high octane performance that included a shuffling zebra on stage. That same day the nominations for the 2012 Billboard Music Awards were released and LMFAO was a finalist in 17 categories (second only to Adele who was a finalist in 18 categories) including Top Hot 100 Artist, Top Duo/Group and Top Pop Artist. LMFAO will bring the party to Las Vegas when they perform on the 2012 Billboard Music Awards broadcast live from the MGM Grand Arena on May 20th.
If watching them on television doesn't get you shuffling you can catch LMFAO and their party rock anthems on the road startingMay 22nd in Columbus, OH when they kick off the Redfoo and Cherrytree Present: Sorry for Party Rocking Tour Featuring LMFAO and the Party Rock Crew and Special Guests Far East Movement, The Quest Crew, Sidney Samson, Eva Simons, Natalia Kills and Matthew Koma. The Live Nation promoted tour kicks off May 22nd in Columbus, OH at Nationwide Arena. Tickets are still available at Ticketmaster.com and Livenation.com. A complete itinerary follows this release.
The Sorry for Party Rocking Tour will mark the return to the concert stage of Sky Blu who was sidelined for the past five months when he suffered a severe back injury. The injury forced Sky to miss the remaining Canadian Cherrytree Pop Tour dates, a European run and most recently dates in Asia, but Redfoo and the Party Rock Crew kept the party popping and entertained audiences totaling over 300,000 fans around the globe. Sky continues to diligently work to put his body back together so he could be well enough to perform 90 minute shows each night when he tours North America this summer. Sky Blu is back May 22nd! "I am looking forward to getting out on the road and wiggling for all the LMFAO fans. It's been a long road but I'm coming back. I really missed my fans," says Sky Blu. Adds Redfoo, "It's gonna be amazing to have Sky Blu back in full effect. You can bet we will be taking lots of Shots, Shots, Shots, Shots, Shots, Shots!... to celebrate his return, Yeeeaah baby!"
