Tenacious D just announced they are kicking off The Purple Nurple Tour right here in the Quad Cities!

Hilarious comedy rock duo, Jack Black and Kyle Glass, get The Purple Nurple Tour started at the Adler Theatre (136 E 3rd Street Davenport) on Friday Sep 25 at 8 p.m.

Tickets will go on sale Friday, March 6 at 10:00 a.m. here online at TICKETMASTER.COM and in person at the Adler Theatre Box Office (136 E. 3rd St.). Reserved seat tickets are $65 and $79.50.

A message from Tenacious D: “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!” With that in mind, Tenacious D has put together The Purple Nurple Tour – Twisting Hard To The Left! – Special guests will be Wynchester.

The run of shows, which focuses on swing states, sees everyone’s favorite band (comprised of Jack Black and Kyle Gass) partnering with 46 for 46 to promote voter registration and overall civic action through music.

Says The D: “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.”
