Andrew W.K. is pleased to announce The Power of Partying, his first nationwide speaking tour, spanning the entire country with stops in all 50 U.S. states. Presented by The Party Party, each evening will be an intimate celebration of discussion, a pep rally for the inner spirit, and an optimistic look at the overwhelming intensity of life. The tour sees Andrew continuing his eternal mission to defend and promote human joy, and the never-ending collective search to find truth through partying. Tickets for all dates go on sale this Friday, July 15, 2016 at 12PM Eastern at AndrewWK.com.

This year celebrates Andrew W.K.’s tenth year as a party guru and motivational speaker, a journey that began with his now infamous four-hour lecture to a sold out NYU Skirball Center in 2006. On this new tour, each engagement will feature Andrew's speech on living the party life and also include an open question and answer session, as well as a chance to meet Andrew W.K. in person.

"This is not a political party rally, it's a rally about partying with the political elements set aside," insists Andrew. “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.”

"By its very nature, the inner experience of a human being can be a vortex of confusion and clarity. The current climate in America isn't always aiding us in how to best grapple with the fundamental complexities of being who we are - being at our best. During this 50 state odyssey, we aren't looking for a specific stance on any particular political issue. Instead, we're looking to fortify the foundation of our spirit, so that we can each follow our individual destiny and pursue our own personal exploration of life as best we can. We are uniting around what we have in common - our shared humanity. This tour is a coming together for the sake of partying together. Even if we have different ideas from one another, or don't know all the answers to all the questions, we can still party together. This is a celebration of positive partying - this is a party about partying."

In addition to The Power of Partying speaking tour, Andrew W.K. will also be performing select shows with his full band. All tour dates can be found on Andrew's website.
