TVD Live Shots: Tenacious D at the Riviera Theatre, 11/13

The dynamic, daring, dazzling, dapper duo of Jack Black and Kyle Gass—better known as Tenacious D—brought their Post Apocalypto Tour to Chicago for two sold-out evenings at The Riv. It was as glorious as you might imagine: JB and KG, backed by an excellent group of musicians rocked their butts off. In all of my decades of shows at The Riv, I’ve never seen the place more crowded than it was for the D, nor a more enthusiastic fan base.

The first half of their set showcased their most recent work, Post-Apocolypto, which is both an album and a YouTube series. The band performed behind a screen with the series projected on it. Later, the screen dropped and they played a killer “greatest hits” set.

Tenacious D’s tour heads to Canada in December and I strongly encourage my neighbors up north to grab tickets. They make you laugh and they make you rock—is there anything better?
