Black Eyed Peas - Thunderstorm Washes Out Black Eyed Peas Charity Gig

The Black Eyed Peas were forced to scrap a charity concert in New York's Central Park on Thursday (09Jun11) due to severe wet weather conditions.
The Boom Boom Pow hitmakers were scheduled to host a star-studded show with performances from celebrity pals including Taylor Swift, Natasha Bedingfield, LL Cool J, Debbie Harry and Tony Bennett, and appearances from Whoopi Goldberg, Zach Braff and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Sweltering temperatures caused organisers to delay the start of the Concert 4 Nyc by more than two hours as a result of safety fears, but a sudden downpour, coupled with thunder and lightening, prompted officials to scrap the show altogether.
Announcing the axe to fans gathered in Central Park, a spokesman said, "Due to severe weather conditions the Black Eyed Peas concert has been cancelled."
Awaiting on the official word to see if the show would go on, British singer Bedingfield wrote on her blog, "Sitting looking out my window at Central Park waiting for word on if we can perform or not. It's chucking it down! Feels like London."
The gig was due to raise funds for the Robin Hood Foundation, a charity aimed at tackling poverty in the Big Apple.
As WENN went to press, organisers had yet to decide if the event would be rescheduled.
