David Guetta has just announced that will.i.am will join him for an exclusive back-to-back DJ show at Alexandra Palace on Saturday June 2nd.
The friends and collaborators will spin together for the first time ever in the UK.
This special performance promises to electrify the landmark London venue. The pair have partnered up behind the decks in the US and blown the roof but never before on British turf. As a DJ will.i.am has played many major shows; including Electric Daisy Carnival, Ultra Music Festival and David's F*** Me I'm Famous party at Pacha Ibiza.
The artists have collaborated for the past few years since Guetta produced "I Gotta Feeling" and will.i.am wrote and performed on David's One Love beats - fitting that one cut is One The Dancefloor and another I Wanna Go Crazy. will.i.am features on Guetta's current platinum album - Nothing But The Beat - with "Nothing Really Matters", also the title track of Guetta's movie.
The gig follows 'The Voice' finale on the same night, where will.i.am and Guetta's other collaborator - Jessie J - go head to head. It's gonna be one helluva party..!
David says "Working with will changed my life; he's such a great person and a true friend. He's an alien! A genius! He was into the rave scene early and was the first to spot Love Is Gone. He called me and I was like "wow - you want ME to produce for The Black Eyed Peas?" Crazy.. That call led to me producing I Gotta Feeling. It's so organic - we still make music just for fun. We share the same passions. When we play together its us sparking off each other - and for the first time ever, the UK can see it live. We're both competitive on the decks, so expect a battle - of brothers!"
Also performing is hot Dutch talent Nicky Romero with NERVO opening.
