The Black Eyed Peas are scheduled to perform at the one of the
world’s largest 21-and-up New Years Eve bashes, "Giant Village 2006."
Going on its sixth
year, "Giant Village" is returning to Wilshire Boulevard in downtown
After last year’s
sold-out event, the party will be expanded by two blocks, for an even bigger
and better celebration that equals roughly six blocks.
Over 15,000 people expected to attend the event, which will also include performances
by Junkie XL, Z-Trip, Death Cab for Cutie and others.
Giant Village will donate a portion of its proceeds to the American Red Cross
and to Chrysalis, a non-profit organization committed to helping the economically
disadvantaged and homeless become self sufficient through employment opportunities.
Since its beginning, Giant’s celebrations have generated over $300,000
for various Los Angeles based charities.
In related news, Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie has been tapped to star in a
remake of ’70s disaster flick "The Poseiden Adventure" with Kurt Russell
and an episode of the HBO series, The Sopranos.
