Jack Black and Kyle Gass are taking Tenacious D back on the road this fall for the 'Purple Nurple Tour - Twisting Hard To The Left!' with support from Wynchester, the project of the Kyle Gass Band vocalist Mike Bray and Tenacious D touring/session guitarist John Konesky. The tour is mostly hitting swing states (plus NYC and the DC area) and the band says:
Donald Trump has proven to be the most divisive, corrupt and dangerous President in the modern history of this country, and we simply cannot stand for another four years of his administration! Now is the time to elect a REAL leader!
In 2016, six states were decided by 2 percentage points or less, and ten states were decided by 4 percentage points or less. Swing states played a pivotal role in the outcome of that election, and they will again in 2020. Knowing that, we looked at each other and agreed: just like the tale of Post-Apocalypto, it is time for Tenacious D to RIDE and help save the world from Trumpian destruction. With great rock comes great responsibility.
The tour kicks off in Iowa in September and wraps up with a show at NYC's iconic Radio City Music Hall on October 9. Tickets for Radio City go on sale Friday (3/6) at 10 AM with various presales starting Wednesday (3/4) at 10 AM.
All dates (including Bonnaroo) are listed below.
Tenacious D are also releasing Post-Apocalypto: The Graphic Novel on September 15. Watch the film version below...
