The Black Eyed Peas will give what concert organizers
dubbed "the first full-scale Hip-Hop concert" in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
The group recently signed on to do their first
Southeast Asian tour for Malaysian fans later next month.
The event is organized by Pineapple Concerts,
who said the group will perform at the Bukit Kiara Equestrian and Country Resort
on May 26.
Pineapple Concerts staged a show by rock band
Incubus on March 16, which drew over 8,000 fans. The company hopes the Black
Eyed Peas will continue their successes.
Malaysia is home to several Hip-Hop groups, including
the platinum selling Too Phat.
In related news, the Peas have reworked their
song "Lets Get Retarded" into "Lets Get It Started" for
ESPN and the NBA. The original version of the record was featured on their platinum
selling album Elephunk.
