Black Eyed Peas want to open for Michael Jackson when the pop singer starts his "This Is It" concert series at London's O2 Arena. Revealing the Peas' interest of becoming Michael's opening act was one of the group's members, will.i.am.
"We've never played there, but Michael Jackson's hogging all the freakin' days!" so will.i.am shared during the Los Angeles premiere of his movie "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" on April 28. "So I'm gonna call him up and be like: 'Yo wassup Michael, let us open up for you!'"
Predicting what Michael may say concerning the request, will.i.am said, "He might be like: 'Alright, well let me think about it.'" He concluded his statement gushing, "So hopefully he'll let us do some stuff."
Michael Jackson will kick off his concerts in London on July 8 and finish it up on September 29. After that, he is rumored to fly to Japan in 2010 for several live appearances in the country and then return to America a year later for other concerts.
Up to date, there haven't been any musicians signed to support Michael's O2 Arena concerts. But, those who attend the gig may be treated with a showcase of new songs from the pop singer as rumors have been circulating that he has worked on new materials for his comeback effort.
