Late next month Tenacious D will set off on a stripped-down tour that finds Jack Black and Kyle Gass performing unplugged by their lonesomes after a few tours featuring a full backing band. JB and KG recently chatted with Rolling Stone about returning to the acoustic duo format and within the Q&A drops the bombshell news that the D will be curating their own festival.
Black reveals that the festival is scheduled to take place on October 19th at Santa Monica Pier. The D are calling the fest Festival Supreme. “It’ll be a meeting of the minds. It’s gonna be like Mount Rockmore, where you’ve got your Flight of the Conchords, your Lonely Island, your Tenacious D, your Zach Galifianakis, your Spinal Tap, your Eric Idle,” Black told Rolling Stone. JB also mentions the possibility that Weird Al will perform at this “star-studded comedy-rock Coachella.”
We’ll keep you posted on more details about Festival Supreme as they are announced.
