On Friday, 9 October 2009 at 13:00 in Melbourne, Australia, internationally acclaimed three time Grammy winners, The Black Eyed Peas, will board Virgin Blue flight DJ9001 from Melbourne Airport to Perth from where they will create a ‘Mile High Karaoke Plane’.

The Black Eyed Peas, who are now touring the country, will jam live during the private four hour long flight, ahead of their final Australian concert at Burswood Dome on Saturday.

Nearly 140 V.I.P Guests, including 30 winners from a national competition run by News Limited, will join The Black Eyed Peas onboard and share this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity as well as being given the chance to showcase their vocal ability alongside the talented quartet in a mile-high karaoke session.

American fans did not miss out either with 10 tickets on the flight snapped up last week online via a special Ebay charity auction. The winning bidders will fly half way around the world with V Australia and join the Mile High Karaoke flight from Melbourne. All money raised through the auctions will benefit the Telethon Institute for Child Health Research which aims to improve and to promote the health and well-being of all children through the unique application of multidisciplinary research.

Virgin Blue Chief Executive, Brett Godfrey, said, “As well as being the official airline for the Australian leg of The E.N.D World Tour, getting the chance to work on such a unique project with The Black Eyed Peas was an opportunity we just couldn’t pass up. It most definitely is an Australian first and who knows, we may even end up breaking a world-record somewhere along the way.”

In contrast to the larger than life visually extravagant light-show of their The E.N.D World stage production, The Black Eyed Peas will make the most of Virgin Blue’s specially modified Boeing 737-800 aircraft for their mile-high performance.

Following three months of intense planning by a team of more than 50 people including engineers, technicians and staging professionals, the aircraft has been transformed into a unique venue which promises a very intimate experience for those lucky enough to be on board. The aircraft also features a specially designed signage decal fitted to its fuselage to mark the occasion.

The Black Eyed Peas have made history with the longest successive stay at the top of the USA Billboard Hot 100 chart with 26 consecutive weeks at number 1. “I Gotta Feeling” has held the top spot for the past fourteen weeks after replacing their first single “Boom Boom Pow” which then spent 12 weeks at number 1. This is the longest consecutive stay for any artist in the Billboard chart’s 51-year history.
