Filmed at two sold-out shows in the band’s hometown at L.A.’s Staples Center on March 29th and 30th, the Peas performed their biggest hits and transformed the arena into a massive club party proving The Energy Never Dies with state of the art lasers, staging, lights, HD visuals, flying stunts and six world class dancers that will be a visual assault on the senses for EPIX viewers.
