The Black Eyed Peas closed the 2023-2024 winter season in Ischgl, Tirol, on Tuesday afternoon at the "Top of the Mountain Closing Concert" on the mythical Idalp stage in front of 15,000 visitors.

The opener "Let's Get It Started" made a powerful entrance and fell on fertile ground and "Mamacita" and "Pump it" were later eagerly danced and finally applauded as loudly as possible.

With classic hits like "Where Is the Love?" or the closing “I Gotta Feeling” the Black Eyed Peas and the "new" singer J. Rey Soul triumphed overwhelmingly on the Ischgl stage.

After almost 90 minutes it was finally over with the well-oiled party hit machine, which had warmed up more and more throughout the concert and was skilfully supported by visuals.

Even without former frontwoman Fergie, the band is still going strong, and rappers will.i.am, apl.de.ap and Taboo delighted the audience with their party music for party people.

The LA band has been delighting the masses for almost three decades and has left its mark on music history with six Grammy Awards and 35 million albums sold.



The Black Eyed Peas follows in the footsteps of a galaxy of superstars who have entertained skiers and boarders in the Austrian resort's traditional Top of the Mountain gig. Years ago, Ischgl decided to put its entire advertising and marketing budget into staging two massive concerts a year to open and close the winter season. Elton John was the first international star to feature in the Tirolean resort's now-famous season-closing concerts, back in April 1995. Since then, the resort has hosted Rod Stewart, Bob Dylan, Sting, Tina Turner, Diana Ross, Bon Jovi, Enrique Iglesias, Atomic Kitten, Peter Gabriel, The Corrs, Alanis Morissette, Lionel Richie, Pink, the Scissor Sisters, the Pussycat Dolls, Rihanna, Elton John again, Gabriella Cilmi, Leona Lewis, Kylie Minogue, Katy Perry, Alicia Keys, Gossip, The Killers, Roxette, Mariah Carey, The Scorpions, Deep Purple, Nickelback, Robbie Williams, James Blunt, Thirty Seconds to Mars, The Beach Boys, PUR, Zucchero, Jason Derulo, Lenny Kravitz, Simply Red, Kings of Leon, Sean Paul, George Ezra, Eros Ramazzotti, and Demi Lovato.
