NEW YORK (Billboard) - The Black Eyed Peas announced an ambitious 100-date world tour, including a series of 2010 shows in North America, the popular hip-hop group's first full-scale tour of the U.S. and Canada in nearly four years.

The North American leg of "The E.N.D. World Tour 2010" kicks off February 4 in Atlanta and runs through April 11 in Vancouver, B.C. The tour will resume in May with shows across Europe and the U.K. U.S. tickets go on sale beginning December 12.

In October, the Peas tied a Billboard Hot 100 record with the most consecutive weeks at No. 1, holding down the top spot for 26 weeks with the hit singles "Boom Boom Pow" and "I Gotta Feeling."

The E.N.D. has sold 1.39 million albums in the U.S. since its June 9 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
