D-Tour is a traditional-style tour documentary following Kyle Gass and Jack Black on tour in conjunction with the release of their film Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny. This doc was largely filmed, produced and edited by Jack Black's assistant Jeremy Konner during the first half of 2007. The main focus is tension in the band - Pick of Destiny flops in theaters and Kyle is ignored by the media in favor of Jack.
This is an amazing opportunity to see all the hard work and genuine feelings that go into creating Tenacious D a band that on the surface might appear to be a silly novelty act. Highlights include Kyle tutoring Jack Black on several D songs as they try to get their chops back for the tour, a hilarious "chariot" that's not exactly up to speed, some very dark moments for Kyle as he gets shoved aside in interviews and a lot of killer Tenacious D tunes especially the improv by Jack & Kyle over the ending credits (worth the price of admission!) If you like the band, you'll love this doc. If you're into music docs, check this out for different look at an act that's often called "tired". The Tenacious shtick still has a lot of charm.
