ANDREW W.K. is experiencing a “renaissance” of sorts. 2013 has been a very good year for the party expert, and today brings news that takes the year to even greater heights: ANDREW W.K. will be the exclusive opening act for BLACK SABBATH as they tour North America in support of their just-released album, 13. Andrew will open each show with a DJ set as he “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’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.
