LMFAO Does New York

From the sold-out show at Blender Theater Gramercy to the rooftop of Hudson Terrace, LMFAO took over New York City this summer.

LMFAO rocked the beat and the show at the Blender Theater on June 18, 2009. While the crowd was much younger than usual (the bouncer said the average age was 16), the venue was packed to full capacity with people of all ages screaming, "I'm in New York, bitch!"

As always, the show was high energy; David Rush even joined LMFAO onstage to perform "Shooting Star."
The highlight of the night? At one point, nearly 75% of the audience was onstage. While security tried to step in, fans scaled the barricades for their chance to dance with the group. The stage was jam-packed with smiling, laughing fans, dancing and singing along with every word--something you rarely, if ever, see at a concert other than LMFAO's.The boys returned to Manhattan on July 14, 2009 for a show on the rooftop of Hudson Terrace, a luxurious NYC club in Hell's Kitchen.

The show, which was 21+, attracted a mix of club-goers in need of an introduction to Party Rock and diehard fans that followed LMFAO out from Long Island (in true LMFAO fashion, the boys did two back-to-back shows in one night).

On August 5, 2009, LMFAO returned to the big city for three performances in a 24-hour period.

After celebrating the premiere of LMFAO's Real World Cancun episode on MTV, LMFAO hit the stage at Central Lounge in Astoria, Queens.

As would be expected, Grey Goose and Red Bull were waiting in the VIP section.
The boys killed it with fan favorites, "I'm In New York Bitch", "Yes", "La La La", and more as fans climbed on to the stage to dance and share the communal bottle of Goose, an integral part of the performance.

Not even ten minutes after getting offstage, it was off to the limo and on to the second show of the night back in Manhattan at Greenhouse.

The Party Rock Crew hosted "Magic Wednesday" at the popular NYC spot.

Joey Rozmus, of MTV's Real World Cancun, made a surprise appearance and came out to party with LMFAO.

The following night, August 6, 2009, LMFAO took the stage at the Highline Ballroom in NYC's Chelsea/Meatpacking District.

The boys launched into "I'm In Miami Bitch", rather than "I'm In New York Bitch" for a change of pace and, while security tried their hardest to keep the girls off the stage at this performance, the show went on--Foo and Sky made sure the fans got their money's worth.

The New York Times was there, too--check out the article here: NY Times LMFAO Concert Review
