New York: The Black Eyed Peas are reportedly planning a charity concert on the Great Lawn in Central Park on June 9.

The band --,, Taboo and Fergie -- recently played at the Super Bowl.

"The concert has been set up with Mayor Bloomberg`s office. They want it to rival the concert that Simon and Garfunkel did in Central Park,” the New York Post quoted a source as saying.

In 1981, the duo did a free concert on the Lawn that was attended by more than 500,000 people and later released as an album.
