Rap collective Black Eyed Peas are so thankful for the support they've received in London, they're planning to move there this summer (04) and put on a free event for local bands.

The group rose to fame with their international hit single WHERE IS THE LOVE last year (03), and because they gained such massive support in the British capital they want to give something back.

Singer WILL.I.AM says, "We plan to come and do some UK festivals, have a base in London, get a house and record our next album.

"Every Wednesday we'd have this thing we call the PEA POD, which is basically a free event, local musicians come along, play with us write new material and have this ongoing jam session based out in London, the place that supported us the most."
