Tenacious D is coming to the UK for first time since 2019 — here’s how to get tickets
Tenacious D fans, rejoice! The comedy rock duo have added European dates to their tour, including a night in London. Here’s everything we know.
The comedy rock duo Tenacious D, composed of Jack Black and Kyle Gass, is going on tour. Originally performing in Las Vegas at the end of this year, the American band have just announced a string of European dates, including one night in London.
Fans of the Beelzeboss (The Final Showdown) duo will be well aware this will be the first time in four years that Tenacious D has performed on British soil, since they played a series of sold-out shows in 2019, which included two nights at London’s Wembley Arena.
The announcement comes not long after Tenacious D shared a medley of songs from Tommy, The Who’s album. The medley features snippets of the tracks Pinball Wizard, There’s a Doctor I’ve Found, and Go To the Mirror. Speaking about the musical assortment, the duo said: "Who better to deliver a tribute to the greatest rock opera of all times? Who? The D! That’s Who! We’ve been working on this medley for 20 years. It’s finally ready to be unleashed. Crank it. It’s a humdinger. Enjoy."
Now, they’re unleashing their musical talent on the UK (yet again) in 2023.
Tenacious D formed in Los Angeles in 1994, years before Jack Black would become a household name after starring in hits like School of Rock and The Holiday. They supported rock acts like Weezer, Pearl Jam, and Beck in the late ‘90s, and toured Los Angeles before releasing their debut album.

Their self-titled debut album, released in 2001, featured Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl on the drums, and awarded Tenacious D cult status with the single Tribute.
The duo have now recorded four albums and worked on other projects together, like a graphic novel and The Beatles mashup, which was released as a charity single for Doctors Without Borders.
