Internationally acclaimed three time Grammy winners the Black Eyed Peas have added a ‘world record’ to their long list of achievements after rocking out at 41,000 feet on a special Mile High Karaoke Virgin Blue flight from Melbourne to Perth on Friday.

 The Black Eyed Peas jammed live during the private four hour long flight smashing the current Guinness World Record for ‘highest ever concert performed on an aircraft’ set by British band Jamairoquai in 2007.

On their flight to Perth Virgin Blue, The Black Eyed Peas and nearly 140 VIP Guests onboard achieved an altitude of 41,000 feet to nab the current Guinness World Record.

will.i.am, Fergie, Taboo and apl.de.ap, collectively known as The Black Eyed Peas, who arrived in Perth to a ‘rock star’ welcome, were ecstatic about the achievement. Fergie said, “It was exciting to make history while having a silly, crazy time doing it!”

 Taboo added, “This was the true meaning of the ultimate natural high in the sky and we all need to experience a mile high karaoke club.”

Virgin Blue Chief Executive, Brett Godfrey, said, “This is the first Guinness World Record breaking stunt we’ve been involved with and we’re just thrilled to have been a part of it by partnering with The Black Eyed Peas and successfully pulling off an in-flight gig of this magnitude. So I’d like send my congratulations to The Peas and also to the extensive Virgin Blue team who have worked day and night for months to turn a ‘crazy idea’ into a reality.”

The Black Eyed Peas performed the final Australian concert of their The E.N.D World Tour at Perth’s Burswood Dome on Saturday night.
