Beastie Boys’ sometime DJ and touring member Mix Master Mike will appear at Metallica’s upcoming North American dates, Billboard reports. The band said in a statement he’d be “spinning some of your favorite (and ours!) hard rock and metal tracks throughout the evening at all of the stadium dates this summer.” They added, “You’ll be able to catch his skillful, hard-hitting scratch work once the doors open each night and between acts before we hit the stage.” Mike also shared a statement via Facebook, which you can read below. The other tour openers are Avenged Sevenfold, Volbeat, and Gojira.
