The Black Eyed Peas, who were in town this past March at the start of their The End world tour, are back again for another showcase around the US. The American tour schedule is rather timely considering the Peas just released what could potentially be their sixth Top 10 single from 2009’s The E.N.D. (The Energy Never Dies). The E.N.D. also yielded the Grammy winning anthem “I Gotta Feeling”, which just about every person can sing whether they like to admit it or not, and “Boom Boom Pow”. While the band progressively recieved more mainstream attention with each album, The E.N.D. was the end of all anonymity, crowning the band dance music royalty.
The Peas performed last week in South Africa for the kick-off of the FIFA World Cup, validating that their songs are sensations worldwide just as they are in the US. During their trip they confirmed that a new album is already in the works, tentatively titled The E.N.D. Volume 2 as is a tour documentary and music-inspired fantasy film project with James Cameron, director of Avatar.
Since the release of Elephunk in 2003 and the addition of lead vocalist and only female member Fergie, their popularity and commercial success has skyrocketed, launching the bands as one of the most recognizable sounds on the radio. While it may seem like they have far too much on their plate right now, will.i.am reassures that The E.N.D. world tour (making its way to Boston’s TD Garden August 3rd) is surely the bands priority for the summer.
The group is currently touring Europe, hitting Paris and making waves headlining European music festivals throughout Spain, Italy, Greece, England, Ireland and Belgium as well as in Canada. The Boston show will be their first American show of the tour, hitting eight major US cities and 8 Canadian cities and 2 music festivals, wrapping up the tour late August.
R&B singer Beyonce experienced a record setting night at the 52nd annual Grammys in Los Angeles, claiming a total of six awards. The longtime performer is currently touring in Brazil and Argentina before taking an expected hiatus for the remainder of 2010. Taylor Swift left the building with four Grammys, most notably for “Album of the Year” and “Best Country Album.” America’s newest country sensation performed her smash hit “You Belong With Me” with Stevie Nicks, calling it a “fairy tale come true.” Gillette Stadium is ready to play host to Swift on Saturday, June 5th.
Bon Jovi showcased songs from their latest project along with the timeless single “Livin’ on a Prayer” in their first ever Grammy performance. The band will also be featured at the home of the New England Patriots on Saturday, July 24th as part of their 2010 summer tour.
Lady Gaga won “Best Dance Recording” and “Best Electronic/Dance Album” with her chart topping debut album “The Fame.” Kings of Leon and Black Eyed Peas were most recognized in regards to group performance and recording. Fergie, will.i.am and crew are scheduled to headline the TD Garden in Boston, MA on Friday, February 26th. Notable male Awards included Jay-Z for “Best Rap Solo Performance” and Jason Mraz for “Best Male Vocal Performance.”
The Black Eyed Peas have announced plans to launch the “E.N.D. World Tour 2010,” marking their first North American tour in four years. They’ll be kicking off the festivities February 4th at the Philips Arena in Atlanta, GA. The group is scheduled to arrive at New York City’s Madison Garden just three weeks into their travels before hitting up the TD Garden in Boston, MA on the 26th. The tour will wrap up after their April 11th performance at General Motors Place in Vancouver, BC. Expect the Black Eyed Peas to perform in all major U.S. cities during their two month road trip.
Comprised of members Will.i.am, apl.de.ap, Taboo, and Fergie, the group was first recognized on an international level following the release of their third studio album “Elephunk in 2003.” Featuring the popular tracks “Where is the Love” and “Shut Up,” the record went on to reach double platinum certification. Their 2009 fifth studio album “The E.N.D.” has already gone platinum with the help of chart topping singles “Boom Boom Pow,” “I Gotta Feeling,” and “Meet Me Halfway.” Don’t miss one of the biggest groups of the year perform live!
