Andrew W.K. to DJ on Black Sabbath’s upcoming North American tour

Everyone’s favorite world record-breaking party animal Andrew W.K. has announced he will be supporting Black Sabbath on their upcoming North American tour by kicking off every show with a DJ set, which will apparently feature “a rabble-rousing selection of classic riffs, heavy jams, and crowd pleasing favorites spanning every era of hard rock and metal.”

When asked how he felt about being chosen as the opening act on the tour, W.K. replied:

“I’m just shocked. It’s just the most incredible dream come true! This is the greatest honor I could be given. I remember when the phone rang and I first heard 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 going to happen. Black Sabbath’s music changed my life from the first time I heard it, 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. Can this really be real!? What kind of adventure will this be!?”

Andrew W.K. last released a deluxe edition of his groundbreaking debut “I Get Wet” through Century Media. I don’t know what the hell Black Sabbath last released. Shit, I didn’t even know they were still a band!
