Way over 100 shows in 2012- a personal record!
This music didn’t really seem to jive with the sport of Kickboxing and the otherwise classy image of K-1.
My first K-1 USA was in 1998 at The Mirage. I used to go to the K-1s in Vegas as much as possible until they stopped doing them around 2007.
They were elegant events in nice venues/ ballrooms in hotels.
People dressed up, there were tons of celebrities and everything was top-notch.
The “comeback” tonight was great in terms of matches and action, but the entertainment and some of the production left a TON to be desired.
Taiko drums and Japanese flute? Cool. Fits the theme.
I loved the impressive music equipment and some of the theatrics, but was this Guitar Hero Rock Band night at K-1?
DJs are mostly for raves and weddings.
Anyone remember DJ Hapa from the MMA event at the Coliseum?
I’m considering bringing an iPod and a blindfold to the next event….
