The two-month trek kicks off in September
Tool are returning to the road this fall for a full headlining tour of North America. The run begins on October 3 at the Budweiser Event Center in Loveland, Colorado and concludes with two shows at Scotiabank Arena on November 20 and November 21 in Toronto, Ontario. All Canadian dates are the band’s first since 2019. Check out the full tour itinerary below.
Tickets for all non-festival shows are on-sale this Friday, June 9 at 10am local time HERE. In advance of the forthcoming on-sale, TOOL Army has opened additional memberships, with pre-sale tickets available exclusively to members on June 8 at 10am local time. A limited number of VIP Packages will also be initially available to TOOL Army members, with remaining options, including premium tickets, soundcheck access, exclusive merchandise and more, available to the general public as the on-sale begins on June 9.
With a new tour comes new Tool merchandise, which has become some of the most highly sought after concert collectibles on the planet – especially the posters. Members of the new and improved TOOL Army will have access to special merchandise and perks, including exclusive pre-sale access to Tool headlining shows, early access to VIP packages, and more.
Over the last few weeks, Tool have headlined Welcome to Rockville and Sonic Temple. In the fall, they are slated to headline Louder Than Life in Kentucky and Aftershock in California. Their final festival appearance of the year will be in October at Power Trip in California alongside Metallica, Iron Maiden, Ozzy Osbourne, AC/DC, and Guns N’ Roses.
The band’s latest studio effort Fear Inoculum arrived in 2019 following years of anticipation. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, shattering sales and radio records while also earning widespread critical praise. The band toured in support of the record that same year, and returned to the road in 2022 after previously cancelling their remaining tour dates due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Tool subsequently released a massive ultra-deluxe 5-LP vinyl box set of the album, and a black vinyl edition as well.
Last March, Tool released “Opiate2” – a re-imagined version of the title track from their first EP in celebration of its 30th anniversary. Visual artist Dominic Hailstone (Alien: Covenant, The Eel) worked with Tool guitarist Adam Jones on a 10-plus minute film for the song, which was the band’s first new video in 15 years. Dominic and Adam also collaborated on the filmed pieces featured on the band’s Fear Inoculum Tour.
Tool formed in 1990 and have released four multi-platinum studio albums: Undertow (1993), Ænima (1996), Lateralus (2001) and 10,000 Days (2006); two EPs: 72826 (1991) and Opiate (1992) and the limited-edition boxset Salival (2000). The band has won four GRAMMY Awards®: Best Metal Performance (1998, “Ænima”), Best Metal Performance (2002, “Schism”), Best Recording Package (2007, 10,000 Days) and Best Metal Performance (2020, “7empest”).
