The Black Eyed Peasâ€™ San Diego concert was shut down by police on the night of December 11 after the band broke the noise limit.
The group â€” who had been performing at an outdoor concert to mark the opening of a new Hard Rock Hotel in the city â€” were told by officers they would have to finish early after locals complained about the noise levels.
Fergie told the crowd of 1,200 they were being for-ced to finish the show, before dedicating the bandâ€™s famous hit Where Is The Love? to the law enforcers.
A representative for the hotel said, â€œFergie said they would close the show with Where Is the Love? She said it was for our friends â€” the police â€” in the lobby.â€
Before leaving, the Black Eyed Peas â€” made up of apl.de.ap, Fergie, will.i.am and Taboo â€” officially opened a suite at the hotel. Proceeds from the suite will be donated to the bandâ€™s charity, the Peapod Foundation. â€” Agencies
