Andrew W.K. Will Make America Party Again on New Speaking Tour

Music News America

Motivational speaker and professional partier (no, seriously, he wrote the book on it) Andrew W.K. will soon embark on a nationwide speaking tour in September, bringing his unique partying wisdom to all 50 states.

According to an announcement on his website, this tour, titled the “Power of Partying Tour,” will see W.K. “continuing his eternal mission to defend and promote human joy, and the never-ending collective search to find truth through partying.”

In March, W.K. launched his official political party, The Party Party. The organization is officially presenting each event, although W.K. says its influence will be minimal:

This is not a political party rally, it’s a rally about partying with the political elements set aside. This is my attempt to add something positive and unifying to the divisive atmosphere surrounding us in so many different forms. Without targeting or preaching to any one side, I want to see if we can party together in our common humanity. We will have a party about being people.

All of W.K.’s new tour stops are below. Watch the video that started it all below, find the “Power of Partying Tour” dates beneath that, and read W.K.’s thoughts on his favorite bar in the world here.
