Dance­floor icon Fergie is headed to Ni­a­gara Fallsview Casino Re­sort for two shows in Septem­ber.

The eight-time Grammy win­ner and one-time mem­ber of pop jug­ger­naut Black Eyed Peas takes the stage at the Avalon Ball­room Sept. 18 and 19. Tick­ets start at $150.

Af­ter rack­ing up mul­ti­ple hits with the Black Eyed Peas, in­clud­ing dance clas­sics “Don’t Phunk With My Heart” and “My Humps,” the for­mer child star went solo in 2007 with the al­bum “The Dutchess.” It spawned three No. 1 sin­gles: “London Bridge,” “Glam­orous” and “Big Girls Don’t Cry.” The long-awaited fol­lowup, “Dou­ble Dutchess,” was re­leased last year but wasn’t met with the same suc­cess.

Also com­ing to Fallsview in Septem­ber is ’70s and ’80s rocker Ed­die Money Sept. 7. Among his clas­sic rock sta­ples are “Two Tick­ets to Par­adise,” “Baby Hold On” and “Take Me Home Tonight.” Tick­ets start at $35.

The Gipsy Kings, with Ni­cho- las Reyes and Tonino Baliardo, per­form Sept. 21 ($55).

Septem­ber will also have two ex­tended runs: The Latin-flavoured dance show “Conga” Sept. 25 to 30 ($30), and the Tony­win­ning “Mil­lion Dol­lar Quar­tet,” about the 1956 chance en­counter be­tween Elvis Pres­ley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis ($35).

Tick­ets for all shows are avail­able at the Fallsview box of­fice and www.tick­et­mas­ter.ca.
