Black Eyed Peas Expected To Trend on Twitter Tonight

As the Black Eyed Peas are in the Philippines today for their much anticipated concert tonight, October 25, 2011 at the Mall of Asia Concert Grounds entitled "Black Eyed Peas: Live in Manila!"

Due to the popularity of the Black Eyed Peas in the Philippines, a new concert ground section called "Oktoberfest" has been added for the Black Eyed Peas concert.  The standing only section will be located at the back of the Bronze section at Ticket Price: PhP530.00.

Aside from the Filipino's embracing many of the Black Eyed Peas hit songs, the group is especially close to Filipinos as Allan Pineda, more popularly known as apl.de.ap, one of the members of the 4 member hip hop group is a Filipino-American born in Pampanga, Philippines.
Being proud of his Filipino heritage, Apl.de.ap will formally launch the "We Can Be Anything" campaign at the concert. This advocacy, which is a partnership between the apl.de.ap Foundation and the Ninoy and Cory Aquino Foundation, intends to improve the state of education in the Philippines.

As Apl.de.ap along with entire Black Eyed Peas are set to perform tonight, expect most of the trending topics to be related to the concert.  Pinoysocialmedia.com will be monitoring the hashtags #BEP , #BEPManila and #BlackEyedPeas to tabulate tweet volume for the entire day.  As of Oct. 25, 2011 8:45am (Philippine time), there are 850 tweets with the #BEP hashtag and 995 tweets with the #BlackEyedPeas hashtag.  #BEPManila has yet to pick up with only 5 tweets so far.  We'll also see which hashtag would be the most popular among the 3 as the concert starts tonight and if the hashtag would breakout to Global trending topic status.

We'll post the results after the concert.  As for their Twitter presence, it would best be described by quoting the Black Eyed Peas for their Twitter presence: "I gotta feeling that tonight's gonna be a good night"
