NEW YORK, April 16 (UPI) -- EPIX has announced plans to air a sold-out Black Eyed Peas concert on its U.S. television channel, video-on-demand service and Web site.

"The E.N.D. World Tour 2010" is to make its world television premiere May 15.

"Filmed at two sold-out shows in the band's hometown at LA's Staples Center on March 29-30, the Peas performed their biggest hits and transformed the arena into a massive club party proving the energy never dies with state-of-the-art lasers, staging, lights, HD visuals, flying stunts and six world-class dancers that will be a visual assault on the senses for EPIX viewers," EPIX said in a news release Thursday.

"'The E.N.D.' is not just about a new Black Eyed Peas sound -- it's a celebration that change is happening," will.i.am, the group's leader, said in a statement. "It signifies the end of the usual ways of receiving information and also the beginning of a whole new cultural birth."

"We are proud to present the world-class talent of The Black Eyed Peas," added EPIX President and Chief Executive Officer Mark Greenberg. "And we embrace the celebration of change as EPIX is redefining the entertainment experience for our audience, harnessing all emerging platforms to engage the next generation of premium viewers."
