LMFAO ANNOUNCES SKY BLU UNABLE TO ATTEND CHERRYTREE POP ALTERNATIVE TOUR DATES
February 9th, 2012 – LMFAO announced today that party rocker Sky Blu remains in poor health due to the severe back injury sustained last month and is unable to perform at the re-scheduled Canadian Cherrytree Pop Alternative Tour dates and the European dates.
Sky was diagnosed with 3 herniated discs in December. Currently his back simply cannot take the stress of a multi- song performance as the pain becomes crippling. Despite attending specialized therapy sessions over the past month, Sky's physician concluded the herniated discs were still too damaged to allow him to perform and any physical activity for more than 2 minutes at a time could lead to major setbacks and negate any progress in his recovery.
Unrelenting in his commitment to global dance floor-domination, Redfoo will lead their loyal platoon of party rockers into Canada and through the first month of Europe until Sky Blu can return.
“LMFAO is a super group and our mission since the beginning is to change this world into a party planet, one show at a time! Health being a number one priority, it's important for Sky Blu to heal his back properly and recharge his party powers!” says Redfoo.
“The LMFAO fans, better known as LMFAO-sters, Baby Babies, Party Rockers, Wigglemeisters and Shufflin Zomb Zombs, have supported us through thick and thin all the way to number one! It is my duty to carry out LMFAO's Party Planet mission and keep the Party Rockin’, with super friends: The Quest Crew, DJ Air, Q Da Danca, Shuffle Bot, Nate & Furr, and Charley Pearl better known as Redfoo & the Party Rock Crew.”
Eager to return to the stage Sky Blu added “injuries like these are tough because you can’t see them...you can only feel them. It’s been a challenging last month but I'm doing everything necessary to be back at 100%. I can't wait to get back out there. Until then, keep the party going!!"
