It has been officially confirmed that the Black Eyed Peas are set to perform during halftime at the 2011 Super Bowl in Dallas. “They could have picked anybody,” will.i.am tells Rolling Stone. “They could rock a million and get Cheap Trick. I love me some Cheap Trick, those motherfuckers is dope. But it says something that they picked us.”
The Black Eyed Peas are the first non-classic rock act booked for the halftime show since Justin Timberlake and Janet Jackson’s infamous “wardrobe malfunction” halftime show in 2004. “I’ve been at every single one of them since that,” says will.i.am. “The Prince one, the Paul McCartney one, Tom Petty and Bruce Springsteen.”
The Black Eyed Peas are dropping their sixth album The Beginning November 30th and will be followed by a world tour.
