Andrew W.K. Joins Black Sabbath
Phoenix, AZ (July 10, 2013) – It was announced today that Andrew W.K. will be joining Black Sabbath on the band’s upcoming North American Tour. The King of Partying will perform a special DJ set every night before the definitive heavy metal band takes the stage.
Speaking on being chosen for such a prestigious bill, W.K. said:
“I’m just shocked. It’s just the most incredible dream come true! I remember when the phone first rang and they told me that Black Sabbath wanted me to be their exclusive opening act. I was really in a state of disbelief – almost sick with amazement and excitement. It took about 3 days until I fully mastered the reality of this opportunity and realized it was really happening. Black Sabbath’s music changed my life, and this tour will change my life all over again. I couldn’t be more thankful or humbled by this one-in-a-billion miracle. What an adventure this will be!”
The tour makes a stop at US Airways Center on Friday, August 30th at 8pm. Tickets are still available right here at USAirwaysCenter.com.
2013 has certainly been shaping up to be a legendary year for Andrew W.K. Most recently, he joined punk drumming icon Marky Ramone as the singer for his Blitzkrieg band on a world tour. Performing over 30 fan-favorite tunes per night, Marky Ramone’s Blitzkrieg kicked off its world tour at W.K.’s own Santos Party House in NYC this spring, followed by a European run. In the months ahead W.K. and Blitzkrieg will play several European festivals this summer before U.S. tour dates in the fall.
