Tenacious D, the goofy/serious musical project of Jack Black and Kyle Gass, is coming to Richmond on Monday, Oct. 5 at the Dominion Energy Center.

The group's Purple Nurple Tour this fall will feature support from Wynchester, the project of Kyle Gass Band vocalist Mike Bray and Tenacious D touring and session guitarist John Konesky, according to Brooklyn Vegan website.

The band released a message that the tour was focusing on swing states during the upcoming election.

“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! – whose shows go on sale this Friday, March 6, at 10 am local time. Tickets can be purchased at TenaciousD.com.

“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.”
