LMFAO Concert Venue Catches Fire
Fire broke out during LMFAO‘s show Wednesday night in Honduras, cutting short the concert and forcing fans into the streets. At least 15 people were treated for smoke inhalation, but fortunately nobody was seriously hurt, TMZ reports.
Redfoo and SkyBlu were near the end of their set at the Coliseo Nacional de Ingenieros in Tegucigalpa when the venue’s electrical system caught fire, according to reports. A video posted online shows fans heading for the exits at the urging of police as smoke filled the air. Authorities believe the fire was intentionally set and the investigation is apparently ongoing.
After the incident, Redfoo made light of the situation, tweeting, “Epic concert tonight!!!! Everybody in Honduras, we set the place on fire!!!! #sorryforpartyrocking …yeah baby.” He said that he saw smoke in the halls after the band was escorted backstage, then added, “On a serious note. Hope everybody is safe from the fire tonight! love you Honduras!”
LMFAO are back in the U.S. for a New Year’s Eve gig in Las Vegas before heading to Spain and Portugal in mid-January for a series of dates. On a brighter note, the band received great news yesterday when their single ‘Sexy and I Know It’ advanced to No. 1 on the Billboard singles chart.
