LMFAO's Redfoo Escapes DJ Set Fire in Honduras
LMFAO's party rocking may be too hot for Honduras.
The group's Redfoo was in the midst of a DJ set in Tegucigalpa's Coliseo Nacional de Ingenieros on Wednesday night when the venue's electrical system caught fire, according to TMZ.
"All of a sudden, right in the middle of 'Beatockin,' my manager Ian Fletcher shouted, 'There's a fire under the stage. We have to go!'" Redfoo told MTV News, adding, "I didn't want to go."
"I didn't realize how serious it was," he said. "The security escorted us out the venue. We were forced to leave a few items behind, nothing irreplaceable. I hope everybody is safe. Honduras fans are true party rockers! This will go down in history as one if [sic] craziest Redfoo DJ sets ever."
A reported 15 people were treated for smoke inhalation. Though Redfoo later tweeted about fans' safety, the chart-topper's first note on Wednesday night was in the group's irreverent style:
"Epic concert tonight!!!! Everybody in Honduras, we set the place on fire!!!! #sorryforpartyrocking ...yeah baby," he tweeted.
Despite the shortened set, Redfoo and SkyBlu have little to apologize for this week: the duo's "Sexy and I Know It" tops the latest Hot 100 chart, knocking Rihanna's "We Found Love" off its throne after eight weeks at No. 1.
