The [artist id="30064"]Black Eyed Peas[/artist] are planning to rock as many bodies as possible when they hit the road next year, so they’re hoping to pack their trek into massive venues around the world.
Peas frontman will.i.am told Billboard that the foursome’s recent South American gigs will be the blueprint for filling the seats in stadiums across the globe.
“South America was a test,” he said. “We did all our homework … to try to figure out how we can do stadiums in other countries, in America, in Europe. If Black Eyed Peas can do five O2 arenas, why don’t we just do it in one shot? If we can do three Staples Centers, we should do one Dodgers Stadium. So that’s how we’ll probably tour this time around.”
“The Time (Dirty Bit)” MC said rocking to the collective’s pop smashes with thousands of other revelers is the best way to experience the Peas live.
“It’s like you’re there with all your friends. You’re there in front of 50,000 people and they’re there to watch you and your friends,” he said. “Nothing gets any better than that. It’s the best feeling, the best one yet.”
The band is expected to get in some practice hitting the stage for a major crowd at the top of next year. Sources have revealed that the Peas will helm halftime-show festivities at the Super Bowl , which often draws over 100 million viewers. Will’s comment that the hitmaking quartet won’t launch their global stadium takeover until “after February,” the same month the Super Bowl airs, is perhaps a hint that the Peas will be throwing down at the football-fest.
The Peas’ sixth record, The Beginning, is slated to be released November 30.
