Tool Plans a Stop in Houston on March 2014 Tour
Last month, Tool announced a handful of West Coast tour dates, but they have now added several more concerts to the trek, including a stop at the Toyota Center in Houston (all dates below). The tour still launches March 4 in Spokane, Wash., and will now go through March 27, wrapping up in Phoenix, Ariz.
VIP pre-sales for most of the newly announced shows go on sale Thursday, Feb. 13, with the general on-sale Friday, Feb. 14. For more details, go here.
While Tool won’t be playing frontman Maynard James Keenan’s 50th birthday party, but A Perfect Circle, Puscifer and reunited rockers Failure will. The two day fiesta will be May 10 and 11 at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles.
If you’re a Tool memorabilia collector, you might want to check out the band’s contribution to Clive Barker’s Kickstarter project for a hardcover art book. They donated some signed custom tour posters. Only one is left, and it can be yours for a pledge of $2200.
The status of a new Tool album remains up in the air. The band is working on new music, but a timetable hasn’t been set. Keenan stated in a recent interview that the creation of a Tool album was “a long process.” He also added that he doesn’t write the instrumentals and was waiting on his bandmates to bring their songs to him.
