Peas’ Mile-High Gig An ‘Aussie First’

A team-up between Black Eyed Peas and Virgin Blue airways saw the act perform a four-hour karaoke session at 41,000 feet on a flight from Melbourne to Perth.

Among the songs tackled were “Black Dog,” “Copacabana” and “Happy Together.”

Virgin Blue declared the event an Australian first.

But on arrival at Perth airport, an autograph hunter complained to police he had been punched by a security man looking after the Peas. He did not press charges.
