Well, the time has come for me to hit the road and check out a couple of Tool shows. As a result I’ll be largely offline the next couple of days, however via the wonders of mobile technology I will probably tweet now and then.
The first A Perfect Circle gig in the USA for 2011 has just been announced at the Rock On The Range Festival in Ohio. As more dates come I shall tweet them, and post a summary of them when I’m back in front of the PC this weekend. Thanks to Toolshed1502 for the tip. My advice is keep an eye on other prominent US festivals due to be announced in the coming weeks…
Too all the Tool fans travelling to Melbourne, I hope you get there in a safe and timely manner, and hopefully I’ll be seeing you at the BBQ tomorrow afternoon!
After looking at the lineup of that festival, I’m starting to think that one in Alberta wasn’t so bad…
Enjoy your shows hellboy.
no kidding. good god..avenged sevenfold, disturbed, korn… what a shit festival.
The only justification people have for them to be there is because they sell a lot of records,man I hate these “bands”!!!!!
Enjoy the shows. Looking forward to some great reviews from you and the rest of the 4E denizens attending.
i live about an hour away from ROTR, and man i really don’t care to go. I was so excited when APC got back together in November, and wanted them to come my way. This however is not what I was expecting. Tickets are like $130. I don’t like one other single act there. This would be APC show 21 or 22 for me, and after all those great performances I just don’t know. I’d gladly drive out of state for a non-festival show. Todays my 30 birthday and I thought the news this morning was a perfect gift. now… Read more »
i agree with you on that one. i can’t afford or justify $260.00 for 2 tickets to see APC and i only live a half an hour away. my wife thinks i’ll regret it if i don’t go though. so well see.
sounds like we may regret, but i told my wife the same thing about actual show time. i said we could get as little as a half hour, 45 minutes maybe, and an hour is out of the question most likely.
Have fun, admin type sir.
Now quick! Let’s all run around with scissors now that Dad’s gone!
lol, why does APC always share the bill with lame numetal bands.
The kids are gonna flip…!

I have no idea, but I am guessing these festivals are easy gigs. Probably require less planning, and work from staff type people. which i understand especially if they aren’t looking to do many shows.
still sucks big time though.
in ’97 i watched korn, snoop dogg and then tool. i was there to see tool for the first time, since i was finally old enough to drive to a show. it was an interesting day for sure.

Yeah, you’re right, and it’s the same reason I think Tool are playing the Big Day Out at the moment. I’m sure Tool and APC actually are happy to be touring, but I expect one of the main reasons for playing festivals is easy money with less organisation/expense required than a proper tour.
Columbus is about 2 hours away from me, but I am going to go. I have always liked Columbus, if I wasnt here, I would be there. I would like to see them at a proper show as well, but I am not going to pass the oppurtnity up, especially since I have never seen them. I am going to keep a sharp eye out for more shows from them, I am sure there will be.
I don’t know. I’d still have a tough time forking over that kind of money for an hour set at a festival. hmmmmm…choices, choices.

Festivals with a band with no production : super easy.
Festivals with a band like Tool: waaaaaaay harder than their own tour.
So where does APC fit into that scale? I assume farther to the easy side, which would support Hellboy’s theory?
HEY JUNIOR…. sorry for yelling. Do you think APC will play coachella??
if it makes you feel better tickets to solo shows in LA were going for that much money anyway.
