They wrap the year with two shows December 30th and 31st at The Theater at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas.

Tenacious D had a variety series on HBO that aired in 1999, they went on to release their Platinum self-titled album in the fall of 2001. The duo completed their first feature film together – Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny – for New Line Cinema, which was released in November 2006 to critical acclaim followed by the album Rize of the Fenix in 2012, which received a Grammy nomination for Best Comedy Album.

In 2013 Black and Gass founded and hosted Festival Supreme, a music and comedy festival in Los Angeles, CA. In its first four years, Festival Supreme boasted acts such as Adam Sandler, Sarah Silverman, Flight of the Conchords, “Weird Al” Yankovic, Patton Oswalt, Eric Andre, Amy Poehler, Workaholics, & many more.

In 2014 they won a Grammy in the category of Best Metal Performance for their cover of Ronnie James Dio’s “The Last In Line.” On November 2, 2018, Tenacious D released Tenacious D in Post-Apocalypto – an animated film, with each frame hand-drawn by Black and every character voiced by Black and Gass. Alongside the film, the band also dropped the album Post-Apocalypto.
