The Beginning

The E.N.D World Tour was the third concert tour by American hip hop group The Black Eyed Peas, in support of their fifth studio album The E.N.D (2009). The tour began in Japan on September 15, 2009, with shows also performed in Australia and New Zealand in 2009. The group toured in North America starting in February 2010, with dates also planned for Europe starting in Dublin, Ireland in May. The group performed 2 shows in Paradise, Nevada at the end of 2009 as a warm up to their extensive North American tour. The tour was also expected to reach South America and more parts of Asia during 2010. It is the group's biggest tour production-wise to date, with the group's female vocalist Fergie stating that they are "trying to up [their] game" and the shows will "utilize a lot of the technology that's out there".[1] The E.N.D World Tour is backed by presenting sponsor BlackBerry, and Bacardi as the official spirit of the tour.[2]
