Cee Lo Gets ‘Crazy’ With the Ting Tings in Las Vegas
Cee Lo Green kicked-off Spring Break with a performance at the Red Bull Sound Clash held at the MGM International Lot in Las Vegas over the weekend. The ‘F— You’ singer shared the billing with indie pop duo the Ting Tings, playing to an estimated 6,000 fans. Cee-Lo treated the audience to a performance of the lead track off his ‘The Lady Killer,’ album along with ‘Bright Lights,’ and his Gnarles Barkley hit ‘Crazy.’
Television personality, La La Anthony acted as host, as the two headliners performed on opposing stages participating in various musical challenges, both rehearsed and improvised, to showcase their musical abilities. The “exercise in musicianship” was broken up into five rounds including “the warm up” in which both acts performed three songs, “the cover,” pitting both acts against one another with a performance of the same song, and “the clash” which challenged the bands to performing their songs in three brand new styles.
The night commenced with Cee Lo and Ting Ting taking the stage for a collaborative performance of ‘F— You.’
In a joint venture with the MGM Resorts International, fans were treated to a series of official Red Bull Soundclash pre-parties, while Studio 54 played host to the official Red Bull Soundclash after party featuring performances by the Glitch Mob and DJ Mick Boogie.
Next, the Red Bull Soundclash will head to South Padre Island, Texas where Snoop Dogg and Ghostland Observatory will perform together on March 17. For more information, and to purchase tickets, visit RedBullUSA.com/SoundClash.
