Tool Tour Rumour

Stick this one in the rumour bin for now, but I received an email from a seemingly reliable (they claim to be involved in the management of a West Coast venue)  today claiming that Tool’s management have started approaching venues for a Summer Tour this year.  I’m a little sceptical personally, given that it’s probably in their recording schedule, but then again, I was equally sceptical about last years tour.

Stay tuned!

I’ll believe it when I’m paying some asshole scalper way too much for my ticket because Ticketmaster sucks.  Oh, and let me be the first to make a presales joke.

Lol! I’ve been feeding my piggy bank just for this and hope it happens but if they don’t tour this summer i’ll be ready when they do.

I sent a quick message off to Junior, who mentioned he doesn’t have anything on in July as yet.

I think a tour this summer is unlikely… I reckon we would have heard about it by now if there was one. Maybe they meant booking for a 2011 summer tour, that would make more sense

I think you are right. If I remember correctly they had already anounced last summer tour by this time last year.

I have new co-worker and we had a nice “music chat” the other day. Of course I mentioned my undying love for Tool. She happily replied that her boyfriend is a huge fan. The next day she said that Tool is touring this summer. I smirked and buried the rumor. It’s funny that it keeps on coming up!

IMO, I don’t think it’s gonna happen. But oh how I wish!!

i hope they play the exact same setlist. and that Maynard does not sing the last line of vicarious. that way people will complain, send a message by not attending, and leave the good seats for me to buy. last summer i spent thousands of dollars following TOOL around, and i would do it again in a heartbeat. i hope it is more than a rumor.

Caught the Fairfax show last summer, and it was fantastic!

Yeah, who knows how valid this rumor is. I certainly didn’t expect anything to materialize last summer, but I was glad it did….Anyway, this seems like a win/win situation. Either Tool continues working on their new album, or they play some dates this summer, and then get back to work on the album. Last year, it was either a tour or nothing, as there was no solid word that a new album was really being worked on…

call it wishful thinking, but i believe it because of this news post blair posted:
 
Happy Birthday to Tool manager Pete Riedling, who is no doubt working on some really big things. (Note: Could it be that some are having a degree of success with a few items in “Libri Of Veneficus Pro Tool.” As the AL-chemists are fond of saying, “Enough said.”) CHEERS! from the entire Tool family.
BIRTHDAY GREETINGS! also on this day to CAMELLA. If you’d like to help her and MARISOL save ocean life, go HERE

Looking back at last summer’s tour rumour mill, it wasn’t until April that the July tour was officially announced.

Yeah good point. I’m sure BMB will announce somthing about it in the April newsletter.

If they are going to tour, it will probably be a USA mini-west coast and mini-east coast tour like it suggests in the March newsletter, and becuase of what nad pointed out about their manager being ‘busy’…

Either way it sucks because I doubt they will come to Europe, and also it might end up being the 10K days setlist for the… 4th year running.

I don’t care what setlist they play. Nothing beats the experience! They always manager to squeeze Toronto, Canada on their minis tours. I will keep my fingers crossed that it will happen again, but sadly I DOUBT!

It was actually March 25th that last summers tour was confirmed.

Why it might happen: Maynard might want to get back into tool mode, the album may not be due out for longer than we anticipate so they want us to know they’re still serious, and a new set list!

Sometimes bands tour before an album to pay for initial costs associated with the recording process.
This also has the added benefit of allowing the band to write some of the album while on tour, which can sometimes spur the creative thinking process.

What, no mention of Mastodon when they hit to the So-Cal scene. Can’t wait till they hit Pomona.

since theres not a hope in hell they’l hit europe, id rather they just work on the new album all summer (make it a double please) and jam the non hits for the next tour, it would be great to hear songs like jimmy, the patient, opiate live again. 
but any activity in toolworld is great news to me.

Tool will record these shows for posterity (DVD down the road, way down the road).

Interesting…Just saw those shows on ticketbasterd myself…If we assume it is legit, then there would have to be an official announcement of summer dates like today or tomorrow. I’ll wait on that until I get excited…

Love to buddy, but I just found out that Canada won’t permit me in due to prior DUI conviction….un-freakin-believable! I’d have to fill out some rehabilitation paperwork + fees. Guess I’ll be missing this show…goddamnit.

here’s to hoping the setlist has some variation from 2009’s…

At the very least they should throw in that cover of ‘Purity’ they were supposed to do last year. that would be intense

I think they were gonna do In Bad Dreams, but the world may never know.
