An article on Alternative Nation, as well as a comment Junior made on Fourtheye suggest that the 2016 Tool tour is pretty much set and that there won’t be many, if any, more dates to be added. This is despite rumours (and that’s all they were) that Failure were to join Tool on a second half of the run across the USA. Looks like those of you in the northern half will be missing out once more!
From Alternative Nation:
In a direct quote from our source, “This is it, these tour dates are what we have and as of this moment there isn’t any new plans to release more tour dates.”
I would lean more towards the first announcement containing “half the total shows” than there being a “second half”.
ie: some of the empty dates will fill in, rather than there being a longer tour. I think it will end at January’s end.
Also, the announced lineup (with Primus and 3teeth) is likely the only lineup you will see on this round.
The good news is that Alternative Nation have listed that New Orleans show, show there seems to be some weight behind that one being added to the tour (albeit on a different date to what Ticketmaster leaked).
