Black Eyed Peas Show Halted, Fergie Becomes Sick

Posted By on October 10, 2007

Rap group The Black Eyed Peas were forced to halt a performance in El Salvador, after group member Fergie became ill. Fergie told over 10,000 fans shortly into the group's performance that she was sick from seafood poisoning and could not continue. The concert was organized by Two Show and was a date on the group's Monkey Business tour of Central America and Mexico. While Two Show didn't offer an explanation for the cancellation, fans speculated that Fergie was drunk.

Two Show said the group's performance would be rescheduled in 90 days and offered a full refund to fans who were disappointed. "I have never canceled a show in my life," Fergie told fans. "I was basically sick on my deathbed with food poisoning. And I said I can't do the show, I can't do it. I am not one of those bitches who cancels her show from exhaustion." She then launched into a rendition of "Big Girls Don't Cry" with the crowd. The show ended shortly afterwards.
