TENACIOUS D @ THE HOLLYWOOD PALLADIUM

Ridiculously epic and appropriately lewd, Tenacious D’s takeover of the Hollywood Palladium saw the duo at its most theatrically over-the-top.
Tenacious D in Post-Apocalypto was performed in its entirety for the first part of the night, showing the comedy rock duo on an animated adventure to save the world. Upon its conclusion, Jack Black and Kyle Gass launched into the most anticipated part of the evening featuring their greatest hits, framed by impressive stage projections. Fans were uproarious upon hearing favorites like “Tribute” and laughed along as the band reminisced about their 2015 Best Metal Performance Grammy win before playing “Dio.”
Wynchester proudly reigns in honky tonk country much the same way Tenacious D does for heavy metal. Comprised of Mike Bray and John Konesky (band members for the Kyle Gass Band and Tenacious D), the duo’s soaring, toe tapping set perfectly whet the audience’s appetite.
