The “Beastie Boys Book: Live & Direct” tour will be in support of their forthcoming 600-page memoir and will feature readings and a Q&A with surviving members Mike D and Ad-Rock. The various reading events will also feature a special guest moderator and a live score curated by Mix Master Mike. According to Pitchfork, there will also be a Beasties exhibit, as well as a mixtape-featured “sound experience,” both of which will be curated by Ad-Rock and Mike D.
