Prog-metal juggernauts Tool have announced a huge North American tour. Check out the newly announced shows below.
Support for these shows will come from Blonde Redhead from April 16th to May 5th and The Acid Helps from May 29th to June 23rd (except the Bonnaroo performance).
These additional dates arrive as the band is currently wrapping up their Australian tour during which Tool added fan-favorite standout Fear Inoculum cut “7empest”to the setlist. The track made its live debut February 18th, in Sydney, Australia. Check out a clip of some fan-filmed footage (despite the band’s generally strict rules regarding filming).
“7empest” also won the Grammy for Best Metal Performance (the titans beat out Killswitch Engage, I Prevail, Candlemass and Death Angel) in which drummer Danny Carey and bassist Justin Chancellor were on hand to accept the award during the event’s pre-telecast ceremony.
Tickets for the new North American dates are on-sale this Friday, February 28th at 10am local time, with the exception of Sioux Falls and St. Louis, which are on-sale at 12 noon local time. A limited number of VIP packages available exclusively to Tool Army members via their website this Wednesday, February 26th at 10am local time.
