    Robin Hood, The Black Eyed Peas, Chase, DAS Communications, NYC Department of Parks & Recreation, and the Central Park Conservancy announced the rain date for The Black Eyed Peas live concert in Central Park, called the Concert 4 NYC. The show will take place Friday, Sept. 30, 2011. The previous concert scheduled for June 9 was canceled due to extreme weather conditions. You know, rain.

    Chase, the largest private-sector employer in New York City, is the presenting sponsor. Supporting sponsors include Clear Channel's Elvis Duran and the Z100 Morning Show, Eventbrite and Calvin Klein Collection.

    Individuals who won or purchased tickets for the June 9 concert who want to attend the Sept. 30 show should watch for an email with instructions on how to claim replacement tickets for the concert. A small number of VIP tickets will be available for sale here.

    "We are so thankful to Robin Hood, the City of New York, Central Park Conservancy and Chase for allowing us to reschedule this special experience in Central Park," said will.i.am. "We were sad beyond words that our last show was canceled and we weren't able to perform for this city and help people in need."

    The concert will benefit Robin Hood and its mission to fight poverty in New York City, and fund the creation of three new sites for The Black Eyed Peas' Peapod Academies in New York City.

    "I was devastated when the Concert 4 NYC was canceled. This was the biggest show we had ever prepared for and we felt horrible for all the fans who waited in the rain," said Fergie. "We have nothing but love for New York and are thrilled that we found a new date to not only help fight poverty in NYC, but to perform a once in a lifetime show for our fans."

    Are you planning to attend the make up Concert 4 NYC show?
