TOOL Surprises Everyone, Band Has Some Serious 2017 Plans and Fans Should Prepare Themselves :
Tool have just announced a batch of North American tour dates! The run will begin May 24 in Fairfax, Va. and end June 8 in Rosemont, Ill. Just last week, Tool teased fans with a post on upcoming tour dates, asking fans to keep checking back with the band’s official website for info. Today, (March 13) Tool came through with the promise, unleashing another eight shows on top of the already announced Governor’s Ball and Boston Calling Festival appearances. The reveal of arena gigs comes just a few weeks after news broke of Maynard James Keenan beginning vocal work on Tool’s highly anticipated and extremely elusive fifth studio album. With 11 years having passed since Tool released 10,000 Days, fans are foaming at the mouth for new music from the cult legends.
It’s been a long time coming. We haven’t seen a new Tool studio album in about ELEVEN years. So far it’s just rumors about a new album but they’ve been quite secretive of late. Who knows with them. Last Tool show that I went to was back several years, but I actually got to go backstage and I met Keenan and Carey in person. Needless to say that they were really cool. It was after a show so they were all hot, sweaty and exhausted but they still stopped to talk a bit.
Look below for the latest list of Official TOOL Tour Dates, links to look for tickets, plus some cool music videos.
