Beastie Boys announce book tour for upcoming memoir
The Beastie Boys have a memoir, titled Beastie Boys Book, which is out October 30. Written by the group’s Michael Diamond and Adam Horovitz, it’s not your typical look back, as it also includes a cookbook by chef Roy Choi, a graphic novel, a map of Beastie Boys’ New York, mixtape playlists, rare photos, original illustrations, and pieces by guest contributors like Amy Poehler, Colson Whitehead, Spike Jonze, Wes Anderson, and Luc Sante.
Mike D and Ad Rock will be promoting Beastie Boys Book with a book tour that will feature “readings, a conversation between Mike D, Ad-Rock and a special guest moderator, plus a Q&A – all with a live score provided by Mix Master Mike.” The tour starts with two NYC events: Town Hall on October 29 and Kings Theatre on October 30. There are also dates in L.A., San Francisco and London.
