Tenacious D at Red Rocks on Thursday, July 26. This is not opinion. This is fact. The dudes are back and touring in support of Rize of the Fenix, their new album and purportedly the greatest album of all time. This, apparently, is not opinion, either, but rather fact. The tour kicks off on May 23 in Santa Barbara and snakes its way around the globe before winding up in Denver at the Rocks for the penultimate date on July 26. Tickets ($39.95-$45.00) for the show go on sale this Friday, March 30. Page down to see the how the two came "To Be the Best" in the mini-saga starring the ultra-famous Jack Black and follically challenged also-ran Kyle Gass.
