Tenacious D, the self-proclaimed greatest band in the world, rocked Houston … and, rocked it hard. Jack Black (J.B.) and Kyle Gass (K.G.) make up the acoustic, metal, rock duo. They began the night with the theme song from Flash Gordon (NICE!) and then continued to play for over two hours! They covered pretty much everything from their self-titled, debut album and the show included a couple of short films. Ridiculous! Fun! Amazing show!
Full setlist (not from this show, but from one around this time … sorry, best I can do): Flash (Queen cover) / Wonderboy / Kielbasa / Explosivo / The Wind / Karate / Kyle Quit the Band / Friendship / Dio / Lee / The Road / Tribute / Cosmic / Rocket Sauce / Fuck Her Gently / Rock Your Socks / Double Team / ENCORE / Star Trek (Alexander Courage cover) / City Hall / Beatles
It doesn’t matter if it is good, it only matters if it rocks . . .
