After shufflin' in the standings and in the streets every day of this season, two of the summer's hottest acts are finally brought together: LMFAO and Major League Baseball. The Grammy Award-nominated group, whose "Party Rock Anthem" has dominated music charts and video views in parallel with this season, will take a quick break from their tour with Ke$ha to perform live starting at 7:30 p.m. ET at the MLB Dream Job winner's pad in New York.
LMFAO, featuring Red Foo and SkyBlu, will perform their current Billboard chart-topper "Party Rock Anthem" in addition to their other hit songs as part of a 30-minute performance. The actual concert is a private event, but the live stream is for everyone to watch.
The performance also will be streamed live to two ballparks for fans to enjoy prior to game action that night. Fans in attendance for Red Sox vs. Royals at Kauffman Stadium in Kansas City and for Indians vs. White Sox at U.S. Cellular Field in Chicago will see the performance on in-stadium scoreboard monitors prior to the first pitches.
In addition to the U.S., "Party Rock Anthem" has soared to No. 1 in Australia, Germany, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, France, Denmark, Ireland, New Zealand, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. On Saturday, LMFAO opened for Ke$ha at the St-Jean-sur-Richelieu hot-air balloon festival in Quebec and attracted close to 100,000 fans.
Be alert for any sudden and unexpected dance-shuffling moves among fans on ballpark concourses. To quote from the official "Party Rock Anthem" video, which has drawn more than 163 million views on YouTube: "Ever since that song came out, every day they've been shufflin.' Monday shuffle, Tuesday shuffle. Everybody. The whole world. It will get in your bones."
Thursday shuffle at the Cave.
Other MLB Fan Cave Concert performances this season have included Sublime with Rome, Los Lonely Boys, pop artist Ashlyne Huff, Dancing with the Stars' Mark Ballas plus many more. Mike O'Hara, the MLB Dream Job winner who is watching all 2,430 regular season games there this season with wingman Ryan Wagner, is expected to introduce the group, as he has the others. All performances can be viewed on MLBFanCave.com.
The Fan Cave is a 15,000-square-foot location at East 4th Street and Broadway (the site of the old Tower Records) in the heart of Greenwich Village. O'Hara and Wagner are blogging and tweeting about their experience and starring in a Web series that has included visits from more than 120 Major League players, retired players, celebrities and recording artists.
