"I’m just shocked," wrote W.K. on his website. "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."
I like how he threw in that reference to Sabbath's 1971 album. Let's just hope he doesn't get Paranoid along the way and Sabotage the gig!
According to the website, the nosebleed-prone party animal will perform a special DJ set every night of the tour, and "promises to spin a rabble-rousing selection of classic riffs, heavy jams, and crowd pleasing favorites spanning every era of hard rock and metal."
"Black Sabbath’s music changed my life from the first time I heard it," he raves, "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!?"
