Tenacious D have announced a UK and Ireland arena tour for next year – find all the details below.
The comedy rock duo – aka Jack Black and Kyle Gass – are due to hit the road in Europe next spring. Dubbed the ‘Spicy Meatball Tour’, the upcoming run of shows includes stop-offs in Stockholm (April 29), Oslo (30), Copenhagen (May 1) and Luxembourg (3).
From there, Tenacious D will head to Dublin for a headline concert at the city’s 3Arena on May 5. Further gigs are scheduled for Birmingham (7), Manchester (8), Glasgow (9), Leeds (11), Nottingham (12) and Brighton (13).
“It’s no joke. Tenacious D is the best band in the world and in the ‘Spicy Meatball Tour’ they are at the peak of their powers,” a quote from an ‘anonymous rock historian’ reads in a press release.
