Andrew W.K. To Get Party Started for Black Sabbath on 2013 North American Tour

Spencer Kaufman, Loudwire

When the highly anticipated Black Sabbath ’13’ tour hits the road beginning in Houston next month, the self-described “King of Partying,” Andrew W.K., will open the show, along with every other date on the North American tour.

W.K. will be the sole opening act for the 20-date trek, kicking off July 25 in Houston, promising to deliver “classic riffs, heavy jams and crowd-pleasing favorites spanning every era of hard rock and metal.”

And, as is his energetic and excitable way, he couldn’t be more psyched about it.

“It’s just the most incredible dream come true!” W.K. says. “This is the greatest honor I could be given… 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.”

Sabbath fans planning to sit through the opener shouldn’t doubt the man’s intensity. W.K., whose recent solo tour was dubbed ‘The Human Party Machine,’ recently broke the world record for an uninterrupted 24 hours of drumming during the O Music Awards.

And, when the tour hits Sin City in September, you just may be able to go for free. Cool! Check this site for details coming soon.
