LMFAO party rocks the Molson Amphitheatre

Posted by Melody Brown / July 5, 2012

lmfao torontoI feel like I'm coming off of an acid trip--or maybe just waking up from a dream filled with neon, glow sticks, life-size pink teddy bears and many, many zebras. And this was no regular dream: it was a party rock dream. LMFAO filled the Molson Amphitheatre with bright lights, heavy bass, and heaps of confetti.

lmfao torontoAlthough SkyBlu, one half of the sexy duo, was kept on the sidelines due to an injury resulting from an oversize package (all you Cosmo readers know what I'm really talking about, am I right?), his afro-coiffed other half, Redfoo, more than made up for the absence.

The concert included a dance break featuring the winners of America's Best Dance Crew "Quest Crew" during which one of the dancers spun on his head for a few minutes, drawing screams from the crowd.

lmfao torontoAnd of course, the Shuffle Bot hit the stage (there were a few in the audience, too) and nearly stole the show with its signature dance move--you guessed it: the shuffle. You can learn it here. Go on, you know you want to.

I have to admit it: I love LMFAO. Their music video for "Sexy and I Know It" replaces the traditional and expected oiled-up, g-string clad honeys with average joes in speedos for a hilarious montage of absurd outfits and dances.

lmfao torontoI can't help but do the shoulder shimmy every time I hear their songs come on while I'm driving. So I dutifully did my shots, put on my brightest outfit, and joined the rest of the neon-clad alcoholics at what I will deem the defining party rock concert of the summer season.

lmfao torontoWith the help of LMFAO, I encourage you to get up and do the wiggle dance. If you need a reason, it's cause you're sexy and you know it.

This dude (Redfoo) is literally like 37 or 38 years old...wtf is he doing dressing, acting and making music like he's 15? Gettin' paid, I guess. Can't blame him, though I don't think he's ever been hard-pressed for money given his lineage.

this 'party-rock', talentless duo (def NOT sexy!) must be laughing all the way to the bank. i can't even begin to imagine how ppl who actually play instruments in bands, and write songs must feel about shit like this packing such a venue. No wonder everyone's drunk, how could u possibly begin to like this sober??

Even though I was skeptical about this partly because I'm 30 and it seemed "ïmmature" I go to concerts regularly. Me and my older friend both AGREED this was by far the MOST entertaining and fun show we've been to all year.

Check it out on youtube. Shit was fun as hell.

We had an amazing time performing in Toronto and I am so happy to hear that so many people had an awesome time and actually get the point of the show... For everyone to let loose and rage as hard as they can for 80 minutes. LMFAO represents a carefree party atmosphere and offers an opportunity for any adult to have a great time in a relaxed judgement free environment. As a dancer I am so excited every night to get out there and bring the party rock!
Everyday I see my dream!

I fell bad for everyone that went to this concert when TENACIOUS D played the night after at Echo Beach.
