Andrew W.K. to Open for Black Sabbath - As a DJ

Posted by: Alex DiVincenzo (06/27/13)
Andrew W.K. will officially be opening for Black Sabbath's North American tour with a DJ set. Dates are in the replies.
Black Sabbath have personally invited Andrew W.K. to join them for their entire North American tour, asking him to kick-off every show as their exclusive opening act. Per their request, the King of Partying will perform a special DJ set every night before the definitive heavy metal band takes the stage. Andrew promises to spin a rabble-rousing selection of classic riffs, heavy jams, and crowd pleasing favorites spanning every era of hard rock and metal.

I saw them at Warped, like 8 years ago. Pretty fun to watch. But full disclosure; I may have had a few Chardonnays that day.

I attended one of his "solo party DJ" shows on the last tour, and to be honest it was beyond disappointing. 25 dollars to hear some karaoke. I doubt this'll be any better, but then again I doubt anyone would drop a large chunk of change on these shows for any reason other than to see Sabbath.

This may be the first time anyone has willingly admitted having a few Chardonnays before warped tour.

I didn't really have any Chardonnay. That's my stupid way of announcing that I got shit-bombed.
