Time To Get Excited!
As the wait for the highly-anticipated new Tool album draws to a close, even more exciting news has just hit the press as we have just learned that the band is gearing up for a North American tour of a select few cities. The news comes a few months ahead of the speculated release of their new album, leaving us to predict that this tour will be in support of said album.
We honestly can’t even remember the last time this band went on a full-length tour like this one, so if this doesn’t get you excited, then you need to check your pulse!
Below are the listed tour dates. These are a limited amount of dates, but chances are that more dates will be added depending upon the tour’s initial success. The announcement of tour dates comes via their Facebook page.
May 5 – JACKSONVILLE, FL @ WELCOME TO ROCKVILLE
May 7 – BIRMINGHAM, AL @ LEGACY ARENA AT THE BCC
May 8 – LOUISVILLE, KY @ KFC YUM! CENTER
May 10 – HAMPTON, VA @ HAMPTON COLISEUM
May 11 – CONCORD, N.C. @ EPICENTER
May 13 – ST. LOUIS, MO @ ENTERPRISE CENTER
May 14 – KANSAS CITY, MO @ SPRINT CENTER
May 16 – LINCOLN, NE @ PINNACLE BANK ARENA
May 17 – DES MOINES, IA @ WELLS FARGO ARENA
May 19 – BRIDGEVIEW, IL @ CHICAGO OPEN AIR FESTIVAL
As I said before, this is a smaller amount of tour dates, but chances are that if the tour proves to be successful financially and critically, which it most likely will be, then more dates will be added. In fact, depending on when the album is officially released, this may just be a warm up tour, if anything.
The real album tour may be slated for a later time. Who knows? It may even be a WORLD tour! Either way, like I said, it’s time to get excited!
