Tenacious D Planning Comedy-Rock Festival?
NME is reporting that Tenacious D are looking to organize their own comedy-rock festival, bringing together some of the biggest acts on the comedy-rock circuit. When asked by Rolling Stone if the D had a Blur/Oasis style rivalry with New Zealand duo Flight Of The Conchords, Black responded with the following: "We actually have been talking about joining forces, because we've always wanted to do a double bill. We're working on a festival, called Festival Supreme." "It'll be a meeting of the minds. It's gonna be like Mount Rockmore, where you've got your Flight Of The Conchords, your Lonely Island, your Tenacious D, your Zach Galifianakis, your Spinal Tap, your Eric Idle." Jack Black also stated that they are in talks to host the festival on Santa Monica Pier and mooted a speculative date: "October 19, circle that in your calendar", he said. "Now there's no guarantee who's gonna be on the bill it might just be Tenacious D and Weird Al (Yankovic). But that's a long ways off."
