Black Eyed Peas

Sorry, We're OUT of the

MJ Tribute Concert

10/5/2011 7:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Black Eyed Peas

The Black Eyed Peas have PULLED OUT of Saturday's big Michael Jackson Tribute Concert -- after promoters claim they have suddenly become "unable to perform."

The details are still unclear -- but the promoters just released a statement saying, "Due to unavoidable circumstances, the Black Eyed Peas will be unable to perform at this Saturday’s Michael Forever event."

Chris Hunt, the CEO of Global Live Events -- the company behind the show -- claims the show will still feature several other "earth shattering artists" ... such as Christina Aguilera and Cee-Lo Green.

TMZ reached out to a rep for the Peas ... who confirmed the group is out of the show, but wouldn't expand on the reason behind the decision.

That kind of sucks that they would pull out at last minute like this. If they were having second thoughts, they should have pulled out earlier.

The Black Eyed Peas are right not or honor a dead pedophile. I'm glad they pulled out of the show.

They probably signed The Black Eyed Peas before they found high end groups to perform. These people have yet to make a great song. Sure parts of two or three are good, but then the other parts ruin the song. Either way, they're overrated and were awful in the superbowl. Plus Fergie is a butterface.

I could've told you they were unable to perform years ago. Nothing but a watered-down, danced-up P-Funk ripoff; although at least they had enough sense to realize it and not get paid to show up at yet another "tribute" to an overblown, mediocre egomaniac.

Have liked them less and less over the years, adding fuel was her talk of open marriage, and bisexuality(which is private), which mean she does not take the oath of marriage sacred. But besides that,.......this is the icing on the cake and not only disrespectful to Michaels memory but that and more to the fans who were going to watch them perform for Michaels memory.
Pea's you have made your way to the "just another drop in the bucket" of stars who do it for THEM, or dont do it at all.

I love the peas! Best group ever! They have conflicting schedules and super busy with their own individual projects. Will is still going to be there, but the peas will not, which sucks. But I think it's too soon for a tribute concert anyways...
