Fergie's VIP Verizon Tour
By Kevin Johnson

If Fergieís VIP Verizon Tour that played a packed Pageant Monday night really represented the future of concerts with all its technical hubbub, maybe weíll just wait until the next phase.

The female Black Eyed Pea is out on her first-ever solo tour, a hyped to the heavens affair full of innovation and interactivity. By nightís end however, it mostly felt like the low-end of high tech. There were cute touches such as fansí picture and text-messaging ("Everyone who is Fergalicious now scream!") projected onscreen, but that was already seen, at least in part, on Fall Out Boyís latest tour.

The real innovation with this free concert was in lieu of paper tickets, Fergieís Verizon cell phone holders downloaded Fergie ringtones to receive picture message tickets. Those without Verizon phones could go to a Verizon store for a paper ticket, though deciphering which stores actually had tickets proved frustrating for some fans (Verizon employees whose stores werenít participating were clueless).

Outside of these new trappings, the pop starís concert was standard stuff. Fergie, who seemed off-balance and disconnected, only pulled it together thanks to her four energetic hip-hop dancers and her band. They helped move her through songs from her hits-stacked "The Dutchess" CD including "Fergalicious," "London Bridge," "Big Girls Donít Cry" and "Glamorous."
