Black Eyed Peas reschedule rained-off charity super concert
Black Eyed Peas have rescheduled their
Central Park charity concert in New York after the initial show was
cancelled because of heavy rain.
The group was billed to headline the Robin
Hood Foundation spectacular on 9 June (11), but the show was
scrapped at the last minute when a storm hit the Big Apple.
Determined to raise funds for a good cause,
the Black Eyed Peas are now hoping to stage the Concert 4 NYC on 30
Band member will.i.am says, "We are so
thankful to Robin Hood, the City of New York, Central Park
Conservancy and (sponsors) Chase for allowing us to reschedule this
special experience in Central Park. We were sad beyond words that
our last show was cancelled and we weren't able to perform for this
city and help people in need."
Bandmate Fergie adds, "I was devastated when
the Concert 4 NYC was cancelled. This was the biggest show we had
ever prepared for and we felt horrible for all the fans who waited
in the rain. We have nothing but love for New York and are thrilled
that we found a new date to not only help fight poverty in NYC, but
to perform a once in a lifetime show for our fans."
The concert will benefit the Robin Hood
Foundation and its mission to fight poverty in New York City. It
will also help fund the creation of three new sites for The Black
Eyed Peas' Peapod Academies in New York City.
