Elder will serve as special guests for all shows next year. The Massachusetts quartet released their sixth studio album, Innate Passage, last November. The band released their previous effort Omens in April of 2020, and finally got to support it with a headlining tour in 2022. Revisit our review and live photos from the their Philadelphia performance at Underground Arts.
Next spring, Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan will be keeping busy by hitting the road with both A Perfect Circle and Puscifer on the same tour. The Sessanta Tour, which also includes Primus, will make its way across the U.S. starting on April 7 at the Coastal Credit Union Amphitheatre at Walnut Creek in Raleigh, North Carolina. The run marks A Perfect Circle’s first live performance since 2018.
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.
Additionally, there’s always the hope of hearing a rare gem or two from the band in concert. At their 2023 tour opener on October 4 in Loveland, Colorado, the crowd got to hear “Rosetta Stoned” in full, with vocals, for the first time since 2009. The rarity “Rosetta Stoned” comes from their 2006 effort, 10,000 Days. The record debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, and featured the hit singles “Vicarious,” “The Pot,” and “Jambi.” The album has since gone on to be certified double-platinum by the RIAA, and garner the band a GRAMMY® Award for Best Recording Package.
This past weekend, Tool headlined two major festivals in California – Aftershock in Sacramento, and Power Trip in Indio alongside Metallica, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest, AC/DC, and Guns N’ Roses. Their headlining tour rolls on through November, wrapping up 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.
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”).
