As I'm sure everyone knows by now, DJ AM and Travis Barker were the two sole survivors of a plane crash that killed 4 people including Barker's assitant and security gaurd. Now after weeks in the hospital, DJ AM is coming back HARD. AM has been tapped to perform with Jay-Z in Hollywood this Wednesday night. DJ AM will be on the 1s & 2s for Jigga at the event marking the reopening of the Palladium Theater.
Wait, the news gets better…DJ AM's publicist, Jenni Weinman, also said that DJ AM will be Jay-Z's new DJ on his upcoming tour. Only 2 dates so far are scheduled for the tour (10/16-Houston, TX & 10/25-Charlottesville, VA). Calling Jay-Z "the greatest rapper in the world," AM described becoming Jiggas DJ as "the biggest thing that's happened in my career."
Tomorrow's show with Jay-Z at the Palladium Theater will be DJ AM's first since the plane crash. To help AM deal with it, his friends are throwing him a party. Mark Ronson, Steve Aoki, Mix Master Mike and other DJs are hosting a party for DJ AM Tuesday night (October 14), the proceeds of which will benefit the families of the accident's victims.
