Tool to headline Governors Ball in NYC

Turns out the rumours of Tool headlining the Governors Ball in New York were correct with the line up confirmed this week.  Overall it’s an interesting lineup full of acts you wouldn’t typically expect Tool fans to show a lot of interest in.  Despite that, I expect it’d be fun day.

Tickets are already on sale, and it appears only 3-day tickets are a thing for now (which I expect isn’t going down well with everyone).

No word yet on any other Tool shows, but the rumour mill seems to suggest there might be, I haven’t heard much personally though (possibly since I’ve been offline for the last 10 days).

Tool to play Governors Ball Music Festival in 2017?

According to Consequence of Sound, Tool will be headlining the Governors Ball Music Festival in NYC June 2017.  I believe there was some expectation this would be A Perfect Circle playing, but they now seem pretty sure it’ll be Tool.

The organisers of the festival have refused to comment saying “The full Governors Ball lineup will be announced early next year, at which point tickets will also go on sale.” so keep this show firmly in the rumours category for now.

Here’s Bjork playing a set at the festival a couple of years back:
