Outside Lands taps Tenacious D to replace Beastie Boys

Of all the names the 2009 Outside Lands Music Festival was rumored to be considering as a replacement for the Beastie Boys, Tenacious D was never one of them. So much for rumors.

Today, the San Francisco based music festival, scheduled to take place from August 28-30 in Golden Gate Park, tapped “the Greatest Band in the World,” aka Jack Black and Kyle Glass, aka Tenacious D, to replace the Beastie Boys as Sunday night headliner.

The performance is the legendary band’s first appearance in the Bay Area in three years and their United States Festival debut.
