And we did something very special with technology. We’re pushing the envelope as far as augmented reality goes and artificial intelligence as Will loves to do.”

The Black Eyed Peas also took the opportunity to urge fans to go out and vote on November 3. “Go vote now. You have to vote early, because they are trying to stop us from achieving social justice and equality. So, we have to make it a point to go out and vote,” said apl.de.ap.
