Tenacious D annouce Philly tour date

by Ryan O'Connell
Jack Black led duo return with new album & tour.

It’s Tuesday and I have good news and gooder news. The good news is that it’s almost lunch time and I have a delicious P,B & J calling my name. The gooder news? Tenacious D are back.

Tenacious D, the self-proclaimed greatest band in the world, comprised of Jack Black and Kyle Gass. They had an amazing show on HBO for a while, followed that up with a solid rock ‘n roll album and piggy backed that into a movie- The Pick of Destiny that kind of only made sense if you were high. Since then Black has rocked it (i.e. Tropic Thunder,) kind of rocked it (i.e. Kung Fu Panda) and totally not rocked it (i.e. Gulliver’s Travels.)

It was announced this week that the D is back. The duo are releasing a new album, Rise of the Fenix on May 15th. They’ll be touring this summer and come to Philly for a show at Festival Pier on June 29th.

Check out the video they released this week to announce their return here.
