More A Perfect Circle show details

A few more details have come in regarding the just announced APC shows:

The band itself will include Maynard, Billy, Josh Freese, James Iha and Matt McJunkins (Ashes Divide, Puscifer).  According to a recent Rolling Stone interview (more on that later) Paz, Troy and Jeordie have also been invited and may appear at some shows.

Live Nation has dates up for the Las Vegas shows (the 20th and 21st of November at The Pearl), and there will be a presale for these shows.  I don’t see them on that site, but kdub420 says the LA shows are on the 8th, 9th and 10th of November.

In other news, Maynard spoke with Rolling Stone about A Perfect Circle, and that interview can be found here.  He mentions that Tool won’t be recording anytime soon, so I guess the rumours I heard of them hitting the studio later this month are pretty much busted right now.  Thanks to Nathan for the tip.

    Well, we all know to take Maynard with a grain of salt so maybe he is just trying to throw us of the scent of finding their recording studio.

    You nailed it BK… and APC is the DECOY BAND!!!
    8`p
    And speaking of TA… there’s STILL no mention of any APC news up there… typical.

    While this is cool and all I have to fee bummed out on a couple fronts. 1. The east coast is shafted yet again. 2. I’d like to see something like an EP released from them or maybe live stuff. I feel like as a fan, I’m getting nothing from this. I never got to see APC and I would freaking LOVE to see them live.

    i’ve seen APC twice. once when mer de noms came out and they opened for that one guy who uses trite rhyming schemes and the word decay too much… what’s his name? oh yeah. trent reznor.
    i saw them again when they toured for the 13th step.
    both shows felt like they were missing something, and emotive was just plain bad.
     
    whatever. i can appreciate making the fans of tool wait another 6 years for an album. it’s totally worth spending time on lackluster side projects. i can totally dig hearing tool play the same set list every single night on a tour.
    anyone notice that maynard just kind of stands on stage these days?
    he’s lost his spark. maybe the fact that all of those asshats who chant “maynard is god!” got to his head. either way, he’s lost his spark. i don’t think the guy really cares any more.

    LOL Nice 1st post there… I’ve been watching the Nerd sing live for 12 years and I don’t think he lost his spark or whatever. He is getting close to 50 however, so that obviously limits the material he’s going to do with Tool.(No more 45 second screams)
    He is still my favorite vocalist and always will be. Oh and how dare you speak of Trent Reznor that way you little puke! :P

    after seeing them in 2009, i would have said maynard doesnt care and has lost his spark… but after the 2010 tour he proved hes still got it. as for maynard just standing there… what do you want him to do?? jumping jacks? cart wheels? i dont see how you can say apc is lackluster though.. i saw them twice too and both shows were phenomenal. to each his own.

    Seeing A Perfect Circle live (and Mini Kiss, for that matter) was one of the most memorable concert experiences I have ever had. Even after the show, fans were destroying stuff and throwing metal trash cans at windows outside of the venue shouting the lyrics from TOOL – Disgustipated after the show was over.

    I saw APC on their world tour for 13th step, was a great show! Really sad to hear that the new tool ablum might be set back because of this new tour though, tool should come first!

  8. nednarb

    oddly enough i’ve seen APC a few more times than TOOL, and i’ve seen TOOL about twenty times. (ah the days free from wife and kids…)
     
    …But yes living east of the Mississippi i too am not thrilled about this tour not coming our way. the thing that also sucks about the non-release of live footage is that they have it. we know they have so sell it to me, NOW!

    I’m torn about this, but the chance to get to see the entire discography makes it pretty worth it.  However having seen TOOL at Red Rocks this year I thought the band was on a whole new level.  After that it’s nearly impossible for me to wait.  Dreams of a new album coming quickly have faded away but the time has certainly come in my opinion.

    Does anyone know if these shows are an all ages event?  I would love to take my 8yr old.  These would be her first concerts and my first to see APC.

    Surely an 8 year old would be permitted to an 18+ gig with a parent? Its not like she’d be trying to buy bourbon and coke.

    Check the venue I guess.  Have a look at recent shows there with rock bands and if all of them are 18+ then chances are APC will be to.  I doubt they’d let anyone under the age of 18 into an 18+ show, regardless of how “young” they might be.

    Not so sure a rock concert is appropriate for an 8 year old to be honest, but each to their own…

    Maybe, but I have heard of TOOL fans taking their children to the previous TOOL concerts and apparently they both a pretty fun time.

    I took my 5 year old to see Soundgarden, Cypress Hill, Social D…… right in the crowd. But I am 6’2 230lbs, I’d drop some elbow grease on anyone that tried to mash me up. Needless to say, never had a problem in a crowd of 60,000 plus. You should be fine, just do the obvious and keep a close eye on the Lil’one. Seen a 4 year old at a Mastodon gig with some big ass earmuffs on, I wish my folks took the time to take me to a show when I was younger.

    I think their shows are all ages. Don’t forget the ear plugs and have a great time! I wish my first concert was this cool!! I sat next to an 8 year old at an AIC show. He was adorable. He took a nap and woke up just in time for Man in the Box. That was the song he was there to hear.

    Yea I saw that. Also there are multiple cities and maybe the tickets will go
    on sale at different times. On 107.7 The end’s website right now it says APC
    tickets go on sale in the morning at 10. Are you going to try and score them
    in the morning? Do you think they will even be on sale? Also how do you plan
    to get tickets to such a show? The Showbox only holds 1100. Let me know if you
    have any bright ideas. All mine fell through at this point, and I am real serious
    about getting these tickets!

  19. 24lateralus

    if they were on sale in the morning i would def. try to get them then, but the thing is im lacking what makes this world turn. (money) this tour was pretty short notice for me personally because im out of work right now. and w/ the showbox being such a small venue, im guessing the tickets will be pretty much gone before they even go onsale ya know? worst comes to worse i’ll prob. end up spending a shitload of money on ebay or some stubhub b.s/ it also sucks because ive never seen a.p.c and i live only a ferry ride away from seattle.

    Thats right….. Lolla! He had a blast. He liked the big crowds of people, the music and the balloons.

    Does anyone know the ticket prices? Specifically the 3 day package. :)

  23. ShbassGTR

    Ticketmaster just released the info for the Seattle show. Only one so far. It says each night is $38.50 and the 3-day pass is $77. I’m having trouble believing that though.

    I cannot wait for this! I really hope I’m able to get tickets for these Phoenix shows! This is all I will be thinking about all week!

    Wow 3 shows for 77 bucks? I am all over that if it is true. That can’t be right.

    Being that I can’t attend any of these shows (you lucky bastards) I can’t wait to see what they perform on Jimmy Kimmel. I wonder If it will be a new song.

  26. blahmoo

    I wish they would play one night in each of those cities (instead of 2 or 3) and then spread the rest of those shows around the country.

    Just ‘cuz I’m bitter (since they aren’t coming to MN).

    Do you guys think this will be it for this tour?

  27. nednarb

    puscifer and apc may or not be equals, but $77 may not be crazy. puscifer 2 nights in detroit was $70.
    $77 is awesome, and they better record these shows. then sell them
