Andrew W.K., rock & roll’s reigning king of partying, has announced new European dates on his “I Get Wet” Ten Year Anniversary Tour. The tour honoring his landmark 2002 debut album (which spawned such anthems as “Party Hard” and “She Is Beautiful”) will hit the UK this April as well as France, Belgium, the Netherlands, Switzerland and Germany (dates below). Andrew W.K. and full live band will play the album in its entirety for the first time ever!
The “I Get Wet” Ten Year Anniversary Tour will kick off in North America on March 3rd and will hit both East and West coasts of the U.S. as well as Toronto andVancouver Canada. Andrew W.K. will also hit the SXSW Festival in Austin, TX this March. Also of note, is that the Chicago date on 3/25 has moved to the Riviera Theater due to overwhelming ticket demands.
Originally released in 2002 on Island/Universal, I Get Wet was W.K.’s urgent rally-cry to the world. Securing the #1 spot on the Billboard “Heat Seekers” chart, I Get Wet’s major-key club-rock sound has proven to be both influential and ahead of its time. W.K.’s sound as, Alternative Press proclaimed, “smashes up pop melodies, metal riffs and industrial beats with a hammer…”, and ten years later, it continues to bring pure party happiness to thousands worldwide.
