Both groups have had similar paths to success and both have reunited over the past year to make music for you to rock out or shake your humps this summer.
After a near five-hear hiatus, the alt rock-turned-pop band No Doubt has returned on the scene and will be rockin’ steady this summer with a U.S. and Canada tour. While No Doubt continues to record their untitled album set for 2010, they’ll make a stop in Chicago on July 11, 2009 at the First Midwest Bank Amphitheater in Tinley Park, IL.
The group took a break after lead songstress Gwen Stefani pursued her solo albums in 2004 and 2006, tours, and fashion lines: L.A.M.B. and Harajuku Lovers.
No Doubt and BEP have more in common than you may think. In fact, during Gwen Stefani’s 2005 tour, the Black Eyed Peas were her supporting act.
The Black Eyed Peas, alt Hip Hop to crossover pop group, have made major waves in the industry over the years and also took time between their touring schedules for the members to pursue their creative interests.
Singer Fergie had great solo success with her album The Dutchess in 2006, and front man Will.i.am produced his own solo album, collaborated with a slew of celebs for President Barack Obama’s campaign and debuts on the big screen as a mutant in the X-Men Origins film.
The Black Eyed Peas have their chart-climbing first single "Boom Boom Pow" from their new album, The E.N.D., which drops June 9, 2009. Their The Energy Never Dies tour also starts this summer, and will be opening for U2 in the fall.
