We are very sad to announce that – due to the ongoing status of COVID-19 – we have had to cancel “The Purple Nurple Tour…Twisting Hard To The Left!” We were looking forward to hitting so many of these great cities this Fall, but it’s important to let health and safety lead the way at this time. All tickets can be refunded at the point of purchase.
The idea behind The Purple Nurple Tour was to rock the vote in swing states across the country. In 2016, there were six states that were decided by 2% or less (Florida, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania & Wisconsin) — and swing states are going to play a huge role in the outcome of the election this November. Voter turnout matters more than ever this year, so make sure you’re registered to vote (link in bio) so we can get the most divisive president of all time out of office!!
The D loves you and hopes to see you soon,
JB & KG “

The Greatest Band in the World: Tenacious D, featuring Jack Black and Kyle Gass, are coming to Kalamazoo State Theatre Sunday, September 27th!
Black and Gass started playing together in Kyle’s studio apartment on Cochran Ave in Los Angeles. No one could have ever dreamed of where the band’s genius would take them, but take them it did…
The band had a variety series on HBO that aired in 1999. Their self-titled album was released in the fall of 2001 with Epic Records and was quickly certified at Gold-selling status, and has since been certified Platinum. The duo completed their first feature film together – Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny – for New Line Cinema, which was released in November, 2006. The album Rize of the Fenix followed in 2012, receiving a Grammy nomination for Best Comedy Album.
In 2013, Black and Gass founded and hosted Festival Supreme, a music and comedy festival in Los Angeles, CA. In its first four years, Festival Supreme boasted acts such as Adam Sandler, Sarah Silverman, Flight of the Conchords, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Patton Oswalt, Die Antwoord, Amy Poehler, Workaholics, & many more.
In 2014, Tenacious D won a Grammy in the category of Best Metal Performance for their cover of Ronnie James Dio’s “The Last In Line.”
On November 2, 2018, Tenacious D released Tenacious D in Post-Apocalypto – an animated film, with each frame hand-drawn by Black and every character voiced by Black and Gass. Alongside the film, the band also dropped the album Post-Apocalypto. Together, they created a genius addition to the D’s already scintillating catalogue of rock greatness.
In early 2020 – with great excitement – Tenacious D announced they will add the final piece to the Post-Apocalypto universe: the graphic novel.
