Are you ready?! Following massive sold out shows across Europe, UK and the USA in 2023 – GRAMMY®-winning dynamic duo Tenacious D, featuring Jack Black and Kyle Gass, will bring their Spicy Meatball Tour down to New Zealand in July 2024! These will be Tenacious D’s first live performances on our shores since 2013.
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’.
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 Issak with a viral hit take on his classic ‘Wicked Game’. And finally in December 2023 Jack Black delivered another smash with his surprise hit ballad ‘Peaches’ from the Super Mario Bros. Movie.
