In Chicago with the Black Eyed Peas...
Black Eyed Peas engaging together, not so much in solo turns
March 14, 2010
Fergie shone the brightest during her solo turns, belting out three songs from her 2006 album, “The Dutchess,” including a bouncy rendition of “Fergalicious.” She also starred in the biggest surprise of the show, rising up through a trap door alongside special guest Slash, who delivered an intricate and propulsive guitar solo as Fergie sang the lyrics to “Sweet Child O’ Mine,” a classic from Slash’s days in Guns N’ Roses.
This rock ’n’ roll interlude was extended one song too long when Fergie and Slash performed “Beautiful Dangerous,” a track from Slash’s forthcoming solo album. The tune wasn’t anything special, but as history has shown, Slash’s playing is consistently engaging, even when the material is weak.http://www.suntimes.com/entertainment/music/2101641,black-eyed-peas-chicago-concert-031410.article
