The Black Eyed Peas are “trying to up our game” for the pop/hip-hop group’s headlining tour, according to Fergie.The Peas’ female member tells Billboard.com that she and her bandmates will begin rehearsals for the headline portion of their tour later this summer, after a run of festival appearances in North America and Europe. The group’s new album, “The E.N.D.,” has spawned a megahit in its lead single, “Boom Boom Pow,” which has topped the Billboard Hot 100 for 10 consecutive weeks.”It’s going to be the biggest tour, production-wise, that we’ve ever done. We’re actually planning for that now, which we’ve never done before — actually plan for a tour. It’s usually just learn the songs by performing at festivals, and that’s our show. But now we’re stepping it up. We had some visuals before, but now we are going to have a lot more, and we’re really excited about that.”Fergie says the Peas will “utilize a lot of the technology that’s out there” but adds that it’s “too early” to get into specifics. “We’re just now getting together what we’re going to do for the festivals and are kind of just making an outline and putting in what we would like to happen (for the tour). So I can’t really talk about it yet.”
