Blair on Toolband/Army has confirmed that Tool will be playing in Japan on the 12th of August in Osaka and the 13th of August in Tokyo. I think the Osaka date is part of the Summersonic Festival, but I’m not sure if the Tokyo show is also part of this, or a standalone Tool show. Hopefully Australian dates are coming soon…..
Blair also confirmed that the German show in Berlin has been moved from the Columbiahalle to the Arena Treptow. Check Tool’s tour page for official details.
Finally, Toolbelt on Toolnavy tells us that Tool are booked to play three nights in LA on the 7th, 8th and 9th of September. No official confirmation on this yet, but it’s safe to say Tool will most likely be doing an extensive US tour around that time anyway.
Well hopefully the LA shows are the very start of the US tour, and they can fit some Australian and New Zealand dates into the second half of August.
That sure would make sense….
I just read a post Blair made on the TA boards, and he mentions that on the 17th of April an announcement will be made in regards to tour dates.
No idea how big an announcement that will be, but it’s safe to say that if there are any US pre-European tour shows, then they’ll be announced at least.
