After thousands of disappointed fans were forced to leave Central Park in NYC back in June for threat of dangerous weather, the Black Eyed Peas returned in full force to rock a crowd of 60,000 on the Great Lawn last night.
The Black Eyed Peas are feeling good about their new video game, “The Black Eyed Peas Experience.” Released Nov. 8 in North America for Wii and Xbox360, “Experience” allows gamers to interactively dance alongside 30 different BEP songs, including hits like “Boom Boom Pow,” “I Gotta Feeling,” and “My Humps,” while attempting to replicate the Peas’ onscreen dance moves.
At Ubisoft’s Monday (Nov. 21) launch party for the game, membersFergie, Taboo, and apl.de.ap celebrated the impressive technology and spoke on their excitement over the game. Will.i.am was unfortunately ill and unable to attend.
“I’ve always liked playing with the joystick, from an early age,” quipped Fergie to Rolling Stone, before admitting, “I was floored because of the new Kinect technology, where you don’t have to hold anything in your hand and you can just move and it picks up your movements. That was a trip to me. Very surreal.”
Taboo also expressed awe at the game, adding, “It’s an amazing, surreal thing… Me being a Mexican kid from East L.A., I never imagined I’d be playing the Superbowl or performing on Oprah.”
“Now, having my own video game, that is the ultimate feeling.”
