Pop-rap trio Black Eyed Peas will headline the fourth show in Expo 2020 Dubai’s six-month Infinite Nights series on Tuesday, 25 January 2022.
Having risen to megastardom thanks to a run of hits, including ‘Where Is The Love‘, ‘Don’t Lie’, ‘I Got A Feeling‘ and ‘BITMO‘, the chart-topping group are now headed to Expo 2020 Dubai.
Black Eyed Peas – will.i.am, Apl.de.Ap and Taboo – are aligned with Expo’s subtheme of Mobility, creating a show inspired by the pace and pulse of technology and music that explores and embraces new musical frontiers.
The Los Angeles-formed trio comprise a wide range of international backgrounds, and the group’s inclusive and progressive values could not be more apt – especially in the context of a World Expo that brings together 200 different nationalities.
The Black Eyed Peas said: “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. On January 25th, we will bring the world together for a global celebration via our live stage performance.”
Following the success of the Alicia Keys show, each artist playing throughout the Infinite Nights series is portraying their own vision and experience of Expo 2020. Engaging the world through innovative show formats employing the latest entertainment technology, the Infinite Nights series thrills audiences both physically and digitally, uniting the world through the power of music with a host of celebrated artists performing live from Al Wasl Plaza, with the concerts streamed to a global audience*.
Lubna Haroun, Vice President, Moment-Makers, Expo 2020 Dubai, said: “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.”
Black Eyed Peas will perform at Al Wasl Plaza at 10pm GST on Tuesday, 25 January, and visitors wishing to attend the concert are advised to arrive early.
