Black Eyed Peas plot 100-date 2010 world tour
For the first time in four years, the Black Eyed Peas have planned a full-scale tour for North America, to kick-off in February and last for 100 dates worldwide.
Dubbed The E.N.D. World Tour 2010 after their chart-topping "The E.N.D." album, the foursome and their crew start on Feb. 4 in Atlanta, taking them throughout the continent through April 11, followed by a short break, and then international domination beginning in May.
Tickets go on sale Dec. 12, with the North American dates below. No word yet on openers.
will.i.am, apl.de.ap, Taboo and Fergie last tackled a tour of this scale in support of 2005's "Monkey Business." It's a little hard to believe that "My Humps" happened to us all only four short years ago.
So it looks like Fergie has half her year planned out for her in 2010. She recently told HitFix that she didn't know what was next on her plate, after promoting the movie "Nine" -- in which she stars -- and shining off supporting "The E.N.D."
“I don’t know my path at this point. We’re not going to be touring this record forever, we’ll see what happens. I might get inspired and write a rock record, I might get a script," she said. “I’ve had to really pay my dues up to this point and do everything at once. I don’t want to do that anymore. I’m not gonna take a role that I don’t think I can handle, I’m not gonna take a role if we’re planning a tour.”
