|Tenacious D concert chronology|
The 2006–2007 World Tour (better known as The Pick of Destiny Tour) was a worldwide concert tour by American rock band Tenacious D. The tour was in support of the band's 2006 comedy movie Tenacious D in The Pick of Destiny and its soundtrack album The Pick of Destiny, and visited North America, the United Kingdom and Australasia. The tour began on November 11, 2006 and ended on February 21, 2007, featuring 32 shows in total. Footage from the shows at the Paramount Theatre in Seattle on February 16 and 17, 2007 were released in the form of The Complete Master Works 2 in November 2008.
In December 2015, JR Reed's "The Metal" stage costume and the car cutouts that were used for "Car Chase City" were placed on auction to raise funds for Josh Homme's Sweet Stuff Foundation to raise vital funds to help the victims of the November 2015 Paris attacks.

This tour, unlike any other Tenacious D tour, featured a full band, as well as Lee. The band played more shows in arenas and amphitheatres, moving away from the smaller venues that dominated earlier tours. Shows also featured more elaborate stage and lighting effects. Jack Black says of the expenses of the tour: "We’re actually losing money on this because we want to do something for The Fans. It's going to be better than The Wall. It starts off in Kyle's apartment and ends up in hell."

- On November 24th 2006 at Chicago's UIC Pavilion, a stage-hand was seriously injured and fell off the stage whilst installing a strobe light. Paul Fire and Marine Insurance Company and The American Insurance Company both insured Tenacious D. The stagehand was assisting one of Tenacious D’s subcontractors, Ed & Ted’s Excellent Lighting Inc, and eventually settled his suit for $1 million.
