Black Eyed Peas Will Try Central Park One More Time

Share

Remember the rained out fiasco of a concert that the Black Eyed Peas were supposed to do in Central Park? Well, it’s back on. The Peas will try again on September 30th. The concert is for the press-averse Robin Hood Foundation. Last time around, the Peas played a private show for really well heeled Robin Hood donors as a “dress rehearsal” the night before the rained out show, at the Apollo Theater. No word on what’s planned this time, although I have heard rumblings of a big show the next night in New York, with some attachment to Robin Hood. We’ll see what the buzz is on that soon. Anyway, the Peas were supposed to have Carole King and a few others help them out originally. No word on who might make it this time around. Maybe this time the Parks Department can sort out what was called enormous disorganization from the first night. People are still talking about how hard it was to get in and out of the park.
