DUBAI: The Black Eyed Peas are set to hit the stage at Expo 2020 Dubai as part of the six-month “Infinite Nights” series. The Los Angeles-formed trio, consisting of will.i.am, Apl.de.Ap and Taboo, will be performing music from their most recent album “Translation” in addition to their chart-topping hits such as “Where is the Love?” and “My Humps” live at Al Wasl Plaza on Jan. 25.
The concert will be streamed globally on www.virtualexpodubai.com, and available to watch across multiple channels, including Expo TV on YouTube, Facebook, TikTok and Oculus (VR), for those who can’t make it.
The Black Eyed Peas said in a statement: “As a group, we continue to evolve our music to connect with the hearts and minds of our community around the world. We are excited about our upcoming Expo 2020 Dubai Infinite Nights special concert that will showcase chart-topping music from our recent album ‘Translation’ as well as our greatest hits.”
The group are the latest in a long-line of renowned artists to hit the stage as part of the “Infinite Night” series, which saw performances by global and Arab superstars, including Alicia Keys, Nancy Ajram and Ragheb Alama among others.
“After the huge global success we enjoyed with Alicia Keys performing in Infinite Nights in December, we cannot wait to host our second global stars here at Expo 2020 Dubai. The Black Eyed Peas have always inspired us with their progressive global outlook and innovative approach to exploring new musical possibilities, making them the perfect fit for Expo 2020 and for its subtheme of Mobility,” said Lubna Haroun, Vice President, Moment-Makers, Expo 2020 Dubai.
