Background

The tour began in Japan on September 15, 2009, with shows also performed in Australia and New Zealand in 2009. The group will tour North America starting in February 2010, with dates also planned for Europe starting in Dublin, Ireland in May. The group performed 2 shows in Las Vegas at the end of 2009 as a warm up to their extensive North American tour. The tour is also expected to reach South America and more parts of Asia during 2010. It is the group's biggest tour production-wise to date, with the group's female vocalist Fergie stating that they are "trying to up [their] game" and the shows will "utilize a lot of the technology that's out there".[1] The E.N.D. World Tour is backed by presenting sponsor BlackBerry®, and Bacardi® as the official spirit of the tour.[2]

Additional Notes

February 12, 2010 in Nashville, during Will.i.am's DJ set, his power was cut and he was lowered to the main stage.Stage hands gave him a new mic, however he made motions, indicating to the audience, that the microphone was not working. After several chants and stomps from the audience, the show resumed with Now Generation about 3 minutes later. Will.i.am apologized (pointing out the irony of "The Energy Never Dies" and how it did) through out the remainder of the show.[7]

March 9, 2010 in Auburn Hills, after Will.i.am's DJ set, Kid Rock performed "All Summer Long" with Fergie, Taboo, and apl.de.ap.

March 13, 2010 in Chicago, after Will.i.am's DJ set, Fergie and Slash rose to the stage to perform "Sweet Child O Mine" and "Beautiful Dangerous" together.
