Before they were known as the best rock band on earth, the former theatre students first formed Tenacious D back in the late ‘90s in Los Angeles. No one could have ever dreamed of where the band’s genius would take them, but take them it did…

Beloved by fans and critics worldwide, the Tenacious D journey includes a hit HBO variety series in 1999, a Platinum-certified self-titled album in 2001, and a feature film – Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny – in 2006. 2012 release Rize of the Fenix earned a GRAMMY® nomination for ‘Best Comedy Album’, the band taking home their first win in 2014 for ‘Best Metal Performance’.

In 2013, Black and Gass created Los Angeles’ music and comedy event Festival Supreme (which has featured the likes of Adam Sandler, Sarah Silverman, Flight of the Conchords and more). 2018 delivered animated film Tenacious D in Post-Apocalypto – which saw each frame hand-drawn by Black, and characters voiced by the band, who also recorded the accompanying soundtrack. A graphic novel completed the Post-Apocalypto universe in 2020.

It didn’t stop there: in 2021/22, Tenacious D covered songs for charity and launched a fibre bars line. They continued their creative streak with Words + Music | Vol. 29 | Tenacious D’s The Road To Redunktion, an Audible Original featuring archival audio.

Just last year Tenacious D launched The Spicy Meatball Tour, performing in 24 cities and selling out London’s O2 the week it was announced. They released their latest hit song Video Games – their first new track in five years – and paid tribute to Chris Isaak with a viral hit take on his classic Wicked Game. Finally in December 2023, Jack Black delivered another smash with his surprise hit ballad Peaches from the Super Mario Bros. Movie.

Tenacious D remains the Greatest Band That Ever Played on Planet Earth, selling out shows worldwide…. Don’t miss the one and only Tenacious D, when they return to Australia and New Zealand this July!
