Black Eyed Peas 'never rehearse'

Black Eyed Peas, whose single ‘Boom Boom Pow’ hit the top of the US charts for a record 12 weeks earlier this year, are about to undertake their first arena tour but band-member Taboo said that the group will not be spending excessive time practicing.

He said: “The thing is about our group is we never rehearse. That’s always been our thing. I know it sounds weird and it sounds funny for such a big tour.

“I know we have a couple of rehearsals in Vegas, so, hopefully we’ll be able to knock it out in a month.”

Despite their lack of rehearsals, Taboo is promising fans something special.

He added: “There's a lot of things that we're putting into this tour that we're not used to. We're glad to be stepping up into the world of a big arena tour.”

Discussing the band’s huge success, Taboo said that they had all “come such a long way”.

He told LiveDaily.com: “The dreams keep on becoming realities for us. We’re grateful to have our fifth album be our biggest album to date.”

Taboo also revealed that the set will include songs from albums ‘Elephunk’, ‘Monkey Business’ and ‘The E.N.D.’, as well as singer Fergie’s solo album ‘The Duchess’.
