Former Beastie Boys DJ Mix Master Mike To Replace Nothing More On Godsmack & Staind’s Summer Tour


Godsmack and Staind have found a somewhat unconventional replacement for Nothing More on their big summer co-headlining tour. Mix Master Mike, who famously served as the DJ for the Beastie Boys from 1998 until the end of the pioneering rap rockers career, will now be opening the majority of the trek.

Mix Master Mike has toured with Godsmack in the past and notably utilized AR/VR technology to open some of the band’s shows earlier this year. Flat Black, the newly announced band from ex-Five Finger Death Punch guitarist Jason Hook, will be taking over from Mike on the tour from August 24th onwards.

Godsmack commented today, July 18th:

“Unfortunately, due to personal reasons, NOTHING MORE had to back out of our summer tour lineup last minute. The good news is our boy Mix Master Mike of the Beastie Boys was able to jumped on board with us and Staind for most of the summer run! The last four shows the run, Jason Hook formally or FFDP new band Flat Black will be the special guests!”

Nothing More stepped down from the tour in the wake of this disturbing domestic incident involving their frontman Jonny Hawkins having come to light. Hawkins is said to have engaged in a physical altercation with his girlfriend at the time in late 2021, leading to her forcibly being ejected from his truck, which according to Hawkins, then accidentally ran her over.
