"It's big,” will.I.am stated. “It's all coming
back to little dreams that you had when you were younger. I remember we would
always have to take the bus, because we didn't have cars and I remember saying
I can't wait to get a Civic. We were never able to get the Honda's at that time,
but here we are headlining The Honda Civic Tour. So for us, it shows that if
you really try hard and don't give up, the dreams that you have can even surpass
the little dream that you once had. Here we are, we went from wanting a Civic
to doing something with Honda Civic, launching a new hybrid. I mean that's dope."
The Peas will also create and design a special customized Honda
Civic Hybrid that will be displayed at each venue with the band.
The 6th Annual Honda Civic Tour kicks off on March 23rd, 2006
