In celebration of the October 30 release of Beastie Boys Book (Spiegel & Grau), Adam “Adrock” Horovitz and Michael “Mike D” Diamond will embark on the six-night four-city Beastie Boys Book: Live & Direct event tour.

Each night of Beastie Boys Book: Live & Direct will feature readings, conversations between Mike D, Adrock and a special guest moderator, Q &A sessions --all with a live score  provided by Mix Master Mike and a brand new Beastie Boys exhibit, curated by Beastie Boys &  Beyond the Streets in partnership with adidas Skateboarding. Sonos will provide the sound  experience at each exhibit, playing a mixtape curated by Adrock and Mike D.

Every ticket for Beastie Boys Book: Live & Direct comes with a physical copy of Beastie Boys  Book—to be redeemed upon entrance to the event.

Written by Adrock and Mike D, with contributions from Amy Poehler, Colson Whitehead, Spike Jonze, Wes Anderson, Luc Sante, and more, Beastie Boys Book is a panoramic experience that tells the story of Beastie Boys for the first time in the bandmembers' own words. Adam “Adrock” Horovitz and Michael “Mike D” Diamond offer revealing and very funny accounts of their transition from teenage punks to budding rappers; their early collaboration with Russell Simmons and Rick Rubin; the debut album that became the first hip hop record ever to hit #1, Licensed to Ill—and the album’s messy fallout as the band broke with Def Jam; their move to Los Angeles and rebirth with the genre-defying masterpiece Paul’s Boutique ; their evolution as musicians and social activists over the course of the classic albums Check Your Head, Ill Communication, and Hello Nasty and the Tibe tan Freedom Concert benefits conceived by the late Adam “MCA” Yauch and more.

With a style as distinctive and eclectic as a Beastie Boys album, Beastie Boys Book is much more than a musicians' memoir. Alongside Horovitz and Diamond’s personal recollections are an overwhelming assortment of rare photos and original illustrations, a cookbook by chef Roy Choi, a graphic novel, a map of Beastie Boys’ New York, mixtape playlists, and many more surprises.

Beastie Boys Book hits stands on Tue sday, October 30.
