Upon entering the arena, audience members were given a taste of the good life as "red carpet" photo stations were set up where photographers took your photo. Inside the arena, audience members flooded the doors and poured into each row quickly filling up the empty space.
Show opener, T-Pain, got the crowd started with hit songs like 'Can't Believe It' and 'Take Your Shirt Off'. His auto-tuned vocals echoed throughout the arena as fans sang along as loud as possible. T-Pain's energy was high and audience reaction reflected that same high energy.
Before the Black Eyed Peas performed everyone waited in suspense to catch the first glimpse of Will.i.am., Fergie, Taboo, and apl.de.ap. As the Peas took stage the arena erupted in excitement. The crowd jumped and sang along, knowing every word of every song, as the band delivered hit after hit. Although the Peas were dressed from head to toe in futuristic space armor, it seemed it could not slow them down one bit.
Each member of the Black Eyed Peas had a portion of the show to make their own. One by one and with a huge introduction, each member took the stage and showcased their special skills. Apl.de.ap performed a song and broke out some break dancing moves. Rapper Taboo, proved to be a stuntman, as well as a musician, as he flew above the audience on a futuristic motorbike while rapping. The audience was brought down a notch (in a good way) as Fergie took the stage and performed some of her solo material, including the hit 'Big Girls Don't Cry'. Fellow Pea and producer, Will.i.am performed a DJ set and ran around the stage dressed as a hip-hop terminator. All in all each member delivered a jaw dropping show while still delivering their own unique spin on the performance.
Will.I.Am, Aple.de.ap, Taboo and T-Pain even attended the Bacardi VIP After Party to hang out with fans. Will.I Am kept the entertainment coming as he performed a DJ set for everyone at the club. It seems Baltimore will always welcome back The Black Eyed Peas after such an amazing show.
