Another Heapin’ Helpin’ Of Peas

The Black Eyed Peas announce even more dates as The E.N.D. World Tour comes back to North America for another round of concerts beginning July 27 in Canada.

Itinerary watchers already know the Peas have dates on this side of the Atlantic ranging from March 20 in Tulsa to April 11 in Vancouver before heading to Europe on a schedule that, until today, ended July 10 at Ireland’s Oxegen festival.

But a new U.S. / Canada schedule landed on our loading dock today, showing the band launching another North American leg with two nights in Toronto at the Air Canada Centre July 27-28.

Other new show listings include Montreal at the Bell Centre July 31 and Ottawa at Scotiabank Place Aug. 1.

Then it’s down to the lower 48, playing Boston at TD Garden Aug. 3; Newark at Prudential Center Aug. 4; Hartford at XL Center Aug. 6 and Atlantic City at Boardwalk Hall Aug. 7.

Other stops include Baltimore (Aug. 10), Buffalo (Aug. 11), Chicago (Aug. 13), St. Louis (Aug. 14), Winnipeg (Aug. 18), Saskatoon (Aug. 20), Calgary (Aug. 22) and Edmonton (Aug. 23).

In case you were wondering, the E.N.D. in The Black Eyed Peas The E.N.D. World Tour as well as the group’s The E.N.D. album stands for “Energy Never Dies,” a description that could be applied to this tour that began four days after the Peas won three Grammys at this year’s awards presentation, raising to six the number of gold gramophones in their collection.
