Published Dec 19, 2008With N.A.S.A.'s superstar-packed debut The Spirit of Apollo just around the corner, the duo are gearing up to deliver a bit of live action. Come February, the project's Squeak E. Clean (aka director Spike Jonze's brother Sam Spiegel) and DJ Zegon will play a short string of North American dates, hitting up several U.S. cities, as well as Toronto on March 9 and Montreal the following night.
There's no word, though, if any of N.A.S.A.'s many, many guest stars will make an appearance on stage, but by looking at the sprawling list of cameos, you'd think someone special would show up somewhere.
Again, The Spirit of Apollo features the following guests and probably a few more: Tom Waits, David Byrne, Kanye West, Lovefoxxx (CSS), Karen O (Yeah Yeah Yeahs), the Cool Kids, Kool Keith, Spank Rock, John Frusciante, Chuck D., Seu Jorge, Fatlip and Slim Kid Tre (the Pharcyde), E-40, Z-Trip, M.I.A., Gift of Gab, Del Tha Funkee Homosapien, Scarface, Chali 2na, Amanda Blank, KRS-One, DJ Qbert, George Clinton, Seu Jorge, Santogold, Ol' Dirty Bastard and Ghostface Killah.
