Tenacious D have announced the support act for their completely sold out May 2024 UK arena tour.
Jack Black and Kyle Gass play six UK shows on The Tenacious D and the Spicy Meatball Tour, opening in Birmingham on Tuesday 7th May and visiting Manchester, Glasgow, Leeds, Nottingham and Brighton.
Promoters Metropolis Music have confirmed today (24th October) that Dave Hill is the special guest and he will be open proceedings at all six shows.
Before Slade fans get too excited, it’s not THAT Dave Hill – it’s American comedian and musician, Dave Hill, who fuses comedy with ‘ripping guitar solos.’
Dave Hill previously supported Jack and Kyle on the September 2023 North American leg of the Spicy Meatball Tour.
When Tenacious D announced their tour earlier this month, they said: ‘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. Better than the Beatles… better than the Stones…even better than Taylor Swift. And they have PYRO!!!
‘Jack Black and Kyle Gass whipped over 300k rock fans into a frenzy on their recent UK/European tour that saw them headline the O2 in London. Fans can expect all the greatest hits on this upcoming leg of the Spicy Meatball Tour along with a generous helping of Rocket Sauce!!!’
