As I stated above, Malibu Red has a bite, thanks to the silver tequila, but fans of Malibu Rum will definitely recognize the sweetness of the signature Malibu coconut and vanilla. You will fully enjoy this complex blend of tequila and Caribbean rum – on its own or in a few cocktails. The silver and red bottle, while still remaining loyal to the Malibu brand, has a sophisticated, premium look – designed in conjunction with “The Gentleman” himself.
The crowd at the very packed Liberty Theater waited in anticipation for Ne-Yo’s performance while enjoying several amazing Malibu Rum cocktails (the Malibu Red Margarita was divine), music by DJ Kiss, delicious hors d’oeuvres, entertainment by Malibu Rum dancers, a yo-yo artiste and stilt dancers

The crowd naturally went wild when Ne-Yo hit the stage in some fiery red pants (his performance was equally as fiery) to perform his greatest hits – Closer, Miss Independent and Because of You as well as premiering his new song and video – The Way You Move. Check out some of The Gentlemen’s performance below
