A message from Tenacious D: “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!” With that in mind, Tenacious D has put together The Purple Nurple Tour – Twisting Hard To The Left! – whose shows go on sale this Friday, March 6, at 10 am local time. Tickets can be purchased at TenaciousD.com.
The run of shows, which focuses on swing states – with a few special stops at NYC’s Radio City Music Hall & Washington DC’s Merriweather Post Pavilion – sees everyone’s favorite band (comprised of Jack Black and Kyle Gass) partnering with 46 for 46 to promote voter registration and overall civic action through music. Tour dates and more information on 46 for 46 are below. Please note the band’s Washington DC show features a special collaboration with Soulful Symphony, bringing a revitalized orchestral element to the band’s already stellar live show.
Says The D: “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.”
Tenacious D also recently announced that they will be adding the final piece to their Post-Apocalypto universe: THE GRAPHIC NOVEL, out this September via Fantagraphics. Pre-order the book HERE!
