A few weeks ago, Kanye West took the stage at the Austin City Limits Festival and told the crowd: “Rest in peace to the Black Eyed Peas! You’re gonna be missed,” fueling rumors that the Peas are about to announce their breakup.
The rumors continue to heat up today following the news that the chartbusting group has canceled its upcoming appearance at Michael Forever, a Michael Jackson tribute concert scheduled for this Sunday.
Chris Hunt, the CEO of Live Global Events, said: “It is with regret that we announce the removal of Black Eyed Peas from the Michael Forever bill, but I look forward to a great night with other earth shattering artists. The event is really getting into gear and is going to be a fantastic evening for all.”
However, an insider says that the Peas’ cancellation has nothing to do with a breakup and more to do disagreeing with the concert’s organizers in regards to streaming the content of the concert on Facebook.
Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, and Smokey Robinson remain on the bill, so for concert attendees, that night’s gonna be a good night!
