All hail Fergie! The Duchess returns to the Everett Events Center to headline the KISS 106.1 FM Girls’ Night Out this Mother’s Day, Sunday May 13th at 7 pm. The Duchess, her debut solo album, saw the Black Eyed Peas vocalist step out on her own with the hits “London Bridge” and “Fergielicious”.

Monday night, she prowled the stage in a teal and white, bejeweled track suit with a thick gold chain around her neck….The Black Eyed Peas set the crowd wild with their theatrics, back flips, break dancing and Will and Fergie’s back-and-forth play throughout the night, including the song “Shut Up.”
