Activision threw a major private party and concert for the E3 Expo at the Staples Center and AMP Radio hooked listeners up with floor access to the event. Since it was so private, we snuck our cameras in to catch Amp Artists like, [lastfm]David Guetta[/lastfm], [lastfm]Eminem[/lastfm], and [lastfm]Usher[/lastfm].
You’re gonna be as shocked as we were with not only the show, but the incredible SPECIAL GUESTS! Keep reading for the details!
Here is a recap of the night:
- Upon walking into the Staples Center everything was aflutter because the show was running a bit behind, which was great, because it gave ample time to endulge in the complimentary food and drinks Activision offered.
- When we were finally let in, Amp Radio gave listeners floor access passes, so our group was able to stroll right to the front of the stage and start watching acts that will be on the next DJ Hero video game, starting with [lastfm]Deadmau5[/lastfm] performing their hit “Ghosts n Stuff”.
- [lastfm]David Guetta[/lastfm] literally popped up from the side of the stage and mixed all of his hits including, “When Love Takes Over”, “Sexy Bitch”, and “Memories.”
- [lastfm]Usher[/lastfm] also raised straight out of the center of the stage with an intense laser show, performing: “Caught Up,” “Yeah,” “Love In This Club” and his current hit “OMG.” During the performance of “OMG” who else but [lastfm]Will.I. Am [/lastfm] surprised concertgoers with a SURPRISE appearance! It was crazy, but not the last of the special guests!
- Inbetween music acts Mr. Tony Hawk showd off his skating skills to help promote his new video game, “Shred.”
- To promote the new True Crime game, [lastfm]N.E.R.D[/lastfm] got real sexy with the song “Lapdance” and had a professional pole dancer climb almost 50 feet high and swing around to the song. It was INSANE. I was praying she didn’t slip…yiiikess.
- The biggest part of the night was when they showed the Call of Duty: Black Ops trailer, not only because it’s going to be the biggest game of the year, or because they had live pyrotechnics as the trailer was playing, but because [lastfm]Eminem[/lastfm] came out as the trailer ended and started his performance with his current hit “Not Afraid!”
- [lastfm]Eminem[/lastfm] had a few tricks up his sleeve with [lastfm]Travis Barker[/lastfm] performing with him, setting an intense mood with the drums. But that’s not all, [lastfm] Eminem[/lastfm] had yet another surprise by bringing out Amp Artist [lastfm]Rihanna[/lastfm] to jam with him on his new single, “The Way You Lie”.
