Redfoo and his nephew SkyBlu are touring in support of the group’s sophomore album, Sorry For Party Rocking, which was recently certified gold and is quickly approaching platinum. The album’s “Party Rock Anthem” has sold more than 10 million units worldwide. The tune was the No. 2 top selling song of 2011 on iTunes in the U.S., second only to Adele’s “Rolling In The Deep.” The single also did pretty well for itself overseas, as the No. 1 selling song on iTunes in the U.K., New Zealand, Australia, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Sweden, as well as Canada. Sorry For Party Rocking also features the No.1 single “Sexy And I Know It” and the third, title-track single, which is climbing the Top 40 radio charts.
European dates are scheduled through March 22, followed by gigs in Malaysia, Japan, Thailand, South Korea, Philippines and Taiwan March 29 through April 13. Another set of European gigs is booked May 4-14.
The U.S. tour kicks off May 22 in Columbus, Ohio, at the Nationwide Arena. Presented by Redfoo and Cherrytree, the “Sorry For Party Rock Tour” features LMFAO and the Party Rock Crew along with special guests Far East Movement, Quest Crew, Sidney Samson, Eva Simons and Natalia Kills.
