A Perfect Circle show details announced

Just as I’d gone to bed an email slips into my inbox with details on the upcoming A Perfect Circle tour:

A Perfect Circle will play Phoenix (Marquee Theatre), Los Angeles (Avalon), Seattle (Showbox at The Market), San Francisco (The Fillmore) and Las Vegas (The Pearl) this fall.  Each of the three-night stops will feature one of A Perfect Circle’s albums in its entirety (Mer de Noms, Thirteenth Step and eMOTIVe).  Las Vegas (The Pearl) will be a two-night outing (Mer de Noms and Thirteenth Step). 

Dates and ticket on-sale information to you shortly.

A Perfect Circle performs on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Oct. 27.

I guess we’ll have more details soon.  My guess is the dates will follow the appearance on Jimmy Kimmel.  I wonder how many people will go to the eMOTIVe shows?

Now to go back to sleep and dream of Tool gigs in Australia…

Wow. SF @ The Fillmore? That will sell out in microseconds. If it’s Emotive, I would have to consider passing, as that album just bites. Although it might be interesting to see what they would do with that material live and after all these years. That is assuming that I could get a ticket in the first place. Anyway, nice to see that SOMETHING has been announced finally. Really looking forward to the TººL news… Ah…. just read it more carefully…. EACH city gets all three nights except Vegas. Much more interesting now. I will try for tickets at least… Read more »

Damn, if I can actually get tickets to any of the shows when they go on sale I’ll be there from TX! I hope this sparks up a full on tour. . . eventually. If I make the trip though, and thy play emotive all the way through, I’m gonna be pissed! There are some good ones I wouldn’t mind hearing, but not all of them.

this is great news. only wish life was perfect so i could go see these shows.
 
does anyone else think Maynard has gone crazy?
 
Puscifer songs here and there, writing and recording songs for TOOL, relearning basically every song APC has ever done, harvesting grapes, raising a son, retail shops, etc.
 
there is many things that Maynard has done where i have had to admit he better than me : ) but now it’s just insulting. i am officially a waste of space.

Good point, and it’s well taken

That being said… have you actually listened to Emotive lately? Seriously… especially compared to the other albums… it’s horrible.

(By the way, I have created music, and I while I can’t objectively say it’s better, I’d certainly rather listen to that than Emotive).

BurlyIves – 2 minutes ago To each their own I suppose. APC has never played Emotive material live, and I’m stoked to see it. Obviously the other 2 albums were better, but Emotive is nothing to sneeze at in my opinion. The time period in which it was released was very fitting. Also those are some great covers. Maybe I’m just old lol I’m pretty confident I’m older than you. 8`p Just to be fair, I’m listening to the whole damn disc again, and I’ll try to be objective. True regarding the political situation at the time, by the way.

Tweeted by aperfectcircle, looks to be the band line up. it was followed by this…

Jeordie, Paz, and Troy all have awesome stuff going on that they couldn’t step away from. But all is well with them.

Experiencing both “Mer de Noms” and “The Thirteenth Step” performed live would be great, but only half the songs on eMotive really resonate with me: “Annihilation,” “Imagine,” “Peace, Love and Understanding,” “What’s Going On,” “Passive,” “Fiddle and the Drum.”

It’s funny b/c other than Passive, I really like the “Counting Bodies Like Sheep…” on Emotive, and that’s kinda a cover of an APC song. Other than that the album is very “meh” to me.

And no, I don’t feel like trying to create something better than an album of cover-songs.

I like “Counting Bodies Like Sheep…” too, but left it off the list because it really is a remix.

Here’s an article straight from Rolling Stone’s website today. A Perfect Circle to Play First Concerts Since 2004 By  Patrick Doyle Sep 13, 2010 2:17 PM EDT   After a six-year hiatus, A Perfect Circle will reconvene in November for a West Coast theater tour. The long-awaited shows feature a surprise for hardcore fans: the band will play all three of their albums in their entirety in each city. “We’re going to do three nights in each city,” frontman Maynard James Keenan tells Rolling Stone. “We’re going to do Mer de Noms the first night, Thirteenth Step the second, and… Read more »

“Tool fans: don’t expect a follow-up to 2006’s 10,000 Days any time soon. Keenan says he’s been too busy at his Arizona winery to give his other band much thought. “It’s kind of hard to consider any of that stuff when you’re combating the weather, pests, roadies and hippies,” he says.”

What was that quote actually in response to? What “kind of stuff” was he referring to?

I hope Patrick Doyle has his head up his ass on his interpretation of what MJK said.

Why does everyone shit on Emotive so much? It wasn’t ever geared as a collection of original material when it was released, its a covers album. And I think for what it is, its a good one. I love some of the unique takes on the different tunes from that record. Obviously if I had a choice of shows to attend the Emotive performances would probably be the third on my list, but still… I would love to hear some of those songs in a live setting.   Man, I’m so stoked to come home to this news but at… Read more »

All I can say is FUCK. Its cool and all I guess, but FUCK. The last minitour didnt come close to me and now this shit. All to the west pretty much. I would much rather the effort from Maynard go to TOOL. And I agree with the Tool Army thing, this should have been on there today. FUCK. Like I said, its cool and all, but surely this will have an effect on the time frame of a new TOOL album. FUCK.
