Bring on the new year! Just two weeks after playing their only show of 2015, Tool are teasing a return to touring. In a message posted on the band’s Facebook page, Tool alludes to a number of U.S. tour dates in January 2016.
Maynard James Keenan is currently on the road with Puscifer. That tour will finish up on Dec. 12 in Las Vegas, giving Maynard some time to unwind before getting back out there with Tool. Tool haven’t been out on a large-scale tour since 2007, playing less than 100 total shows in the past eight years. So when Tool announce they’re coming to your town, fans go insane to grab tickets.
Tool posted the following message to Facebook late last night (Nov. 12):
TOOL TOUR VISIONS
SOMETHING WICKED THIS… YOUR WAY COMES!
For those of you who only like NEWS about TOOL, here’s something that should be of great interest. The impenetrable veil of my dark scrying mirror FINALLY CLEARED today – enough so, in fact – that I could perceive a large heptagram on a complexly lit stage where four performers were dwarfed by dramatic video projections. Evidently the sonic and visual extravaganza that I was receiving is a rare glimpse of FUTURE TOOL U.S.A. TOUR DATES in the month of JANUARY, 2016 e.v. However, with some of the images in the depths of the black glass not being clearly distinct… YET, fans will have to keep checking back (SOON) on the Tool websites and Tool facebook page for an official announcement containing a list of the SHOW DATES, CITIES and VENUES, as well as for info about a tour support act(s). Regarding an opening band(s), what I was able to discern through the ever-shifting veil will in all likeliness be exciting to many Tool enthusiasts. STAY TUNED, FOLKS… as my trusty SCRYING MIRROR CONTINUES TO CLEAR…
Keep your eyes open for Tool’s January 2016 U.S. tour dates!
