Party rocker Andrew W.K. has teamed up with magician David Blaine for the illusionists next performance: allowing 1,000,000 volts of electricity surge through his body courtesy of a ripping keyboard solo. Yeah, you read that correctly.
Here’s how it works (taken directly from the official PR release): “As part of Blaine’s Ultrabook Experience event, Electrified, Andrew will perform a unique keyboard solo using a tesla coil powered instrument in which David Blaine will be imprisoned as 1,000,000 volts of party music surge through his body. Presented by Intel, Electrified will find the master magician this weekend standing on a 20-foot-high platform at Hudson River Park Pier 54 in New York, surrounded by seven towering metallic orbs – or tesla coils – that will stream 1 million volts of electricity around him for 3 days and 3 nights.”
Andrew W.K. states, “A 1,000,000 volt keyboard??? This is absolutely a once in a lifetime musical experience and probably the most dangerous musical instrument ever created! I’m absolutely electrified and terrified by the opportunity to play a keyboard solo with so much energy, and to use this incredibly powerful device to send a musical surge through David’s brain! I just hope he can withstand my high-powered party piano playing!”
Now, as you can imagine, Andrew W.K. will not be doing a 3 day/3 night keyboard solo. Instead, he will be rocking it out this Sunday, Oct. 7th, at 7:30pm EST. There will also be Ultrabook stations scattered in cities around the world where fans can operate the Tesla coils. On top of that, the whole event will be livestreamed here.
