Tenacious D Australian Tour Tentatively Scheduled for February 2013

Written by Marc Zanotti on July 12, 2012

The West have reported that the self-proclaimed greatest band in the world Tenacious D are looking to head back to Australia in early 2013. For anyone lucky enough to have caught Kyle Gass and Jack Black opening up for their close friends the Foo Fighters late last year, you may recall ‘The D’ saying they would return soon with their full-on stage show.

Now with the release of Tenacious D’s latest record Rize of the Fenix, the rocking comedy duo has a solid reason to return to Australia.

“We’d love to come back Down Under. We opened for the Foo Fighters and that was a lot of fun, but we didn’t play any songs from our new album because it hadn’t been released. Nothing has been confirmed, but we’d like to come down early next year, probably around February,” Jack Black said.

The timing would also mean that Tenacious D are in Australia around the same time as Soundwave 2013. Although Soundwave boss AJ Maddah has said it’s unlikely (see tweet embedded below) it’s now looking possible that the ‘Mighty D’ will be a part of the festival.
