As hinted at the other day, it seems that Tool are really playing the River’s Edge Music Festival on Harriet Island, Minnesota. The gig, which according to the press release is “their only US date of the year” (I presume they really mean to say it’s a one off Tool show without any other dates) is happening on the 23rd & 24th of June. Also on the lineup is Puscifer, so perhaps we may see some Tool members helping out during the set, or at least drinking wine or beer on stage.
The festival costs $99 for a two day pass (though that offer expires at the end of April) which sounds like a quite reasonable fee for a two day festival, despite it being a little light on acts I’d want to see.
Not sure what effect this will have on recording, if it really is a one off show, and at time of writing it seems that way, then the band having a weekend off in Minnesota will probably have a negligible effect on their recording schedule.
