Tenacious D Announce Swing State Tour - Pitchfork

Tenacious D Announce Swing State Tour - Pitchfork

6 March 2020

Tenacious D—the rock group of Jack Black and Kyle Gass—have announced a tour. Titled “The Purple Nurple Tour - Twisting Hard To The Left!,” it finds the duo focusing on U.S. swing states. In a statement, they write, “Donald Trump has proven to be the most divisive, corrupt, and dangerous President in the modern history of this country, and we simply cannot stand for another four years of his administration! Now is the time to elect a REAL leader!”

Tenacious D’s tour kicks off this fall in Davenport, Iowa and wraps up in October in New York. Check out their itinerary, along with the rest of their statement, below. Tickets are available here. (Pitchfork may earn a commission from purchases made through affiliate links on our site.)

For the upcoming tour, Tenacious D has partnered with the 46 for 46 campaign to help promote voter registration and civic action.

In 2016, six states were decided by 2 percentage points or less, and ten states were decided by 4 percentage points or less. Swing states played a pivotal role in the outcome of that election, and they will again in 2020. Knowing that, we looked at each other and agreed: just like the tale of Post-Apocalypto, it is time for Tenacious D to RIDE and help save the world from Trumpian destruction. With great rock comes great responsibility.
