Music group LMFAO’s Redfoo and Skyblu party-rocked the Staples Center with a packed concert Tuesday night in Los Angeles.

The electro pop singers greeted their fans with great energy and enthusiasm at the center, keeping their fans pumped throughout the night with dancing and plenty of hip shaking and body thrusting. 

Wearing an array of outfits fashioned out of cut-out t-shirts and baggy sweatpants, the duo had the crowd screaming with provocative strip teases and skimpy skin-baring outfits.  

“LMFAO were fantastic, their performance tonight was awesome. I listen to their music before I go out because their songs remind me of Vegas and partying!” said Ajay Hira, a 29-year old Los Angeles resident. 

Redfoo and Skyblu also invited their surprise guest performers, Quest Crew, season 3 winners of MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew, to come rock the stage as well, and they performed a dance routine that wowed the audience with their acrobatic choreography and head spins. 

The crew matched the neon-infused black light theme with their colorful costumes as they performed routines to mash-ups of popular hit songs such as Gotye’s “Someone I Used to Know.”

Floating zebras and glowing light sticks made their way through the crowd during the performances, and fans of all ages were seen sporting neon band tees with the LMFAO logo, their “Party Rock” sunglass shades. Some were even seen wearing wigs with Redfoo’s trademark curly afro.

LMFAO held true to their lyrical wordsmith, “We rock the party and lead by example,” with a confetti-filled finale of nearly-naked male performers wearing tiny Speedo bottoms. 

Fans danced in the pit and in their stadium seats as the duo performed their most well known hit songs on their “Sorry for Partying Rocking” album, including “Yes,” “Party Rock Anthem,” and “Sexy and I Know It.”

Far East Movement, along with the likes of Sidney Samson and Eva Simons, opened the show.
