The John Lennon Educational Tour Bus, a non-profit mobile recording and multimedia studio, has been invited to join Fergie's Verizon-sponsored summer tour. The Bus, on which Fergie recorded "Fergalicious" and several other cuts from her current album, "The Dutchess," will host VIPs and contest winners for meet and greets and tours of the mobile studio.

As previously reported, tickets for the tour will be sold only through Verizon Wireless via mobile phone, V CAST download and radio promotions.

The Lennon Bus will also be parked June 21 in New York for the presentation of the $20,000 check for the John Lennon Songwriting Contest's 10th Maxell Song of the Year. The winner, who will open for Fergie June 21 at New York's Roseland Ballroom, will be chosen by an executive committee that includes Elton John, Carlos Santana, Enrique Iglesias and Tim McGraw, among other artists.
