Interestingly it seems to me mostly the southern parts of the US – no word on whether or not these are all the dates.
like the artwork. are APC and Tool just gonna carry on as live museum acts or are they gonna release new material? having read his book im not sure either has any part in his immediate future…
Billy has confirmed that they are working on new material. I suspect it won’t be ready for the tour though (it sounds like they’re only just getting started).
If you don’t mind me asking: Who’s Billy?
Just getting started?
Have they scrapped their work about 40 times in the last 10 years or something?
Billy Howerdel, who is the primary songwriter for APC. I take his comments at face value, though the followup Ashes Divide album has suffered from the same “it’s being written and will be out soon” for almost as long as the next Tool album.
It would not surprise me if that ‘upcoming’ Ashes Divide album has seen Billy pressing delete on all his vocals, and has now been handed to Maynard to write lyrics to.
I’m sure Billy would prefer it to be an APC release, so he can get in on some of that PRECIOUS PRECIOUS Maynard cash grab!!!
Would surprise me if that were the case. The first Ashes Divide album was pretty bland I thought, and definitely missed strong vocals.
Not sure a cash grab is Billy’s only motivation – what about all the groupies as well?
It would seem these are all the dates since they are ending back up in L.A.. I was really hoping to be able to see APC and Tool this summer but now I guess I better keep my fingers crossed that Tool does a northeast tour in June along with their festival show.
I wish I was excited.
This will be some excellent summer money for Maynard.
I didn’t check the other shows, but the ticketmaster page for the Austin show includes an option for VIP packages. I wonder what is included as I can’t find any details on the ticketmaster page or elsewhere.
Found this VIP info on Starlight Theatre’s (Kansas City, MO) website:
-One premium reserved ticket located in the first 15 rows
-VIP early entry into the venue
-Specially designed A Perfect Circle tour shirt (exclusive to VIP package only)
-Collectible, silkscreened tour poster autographed by the band
-Custom APC miniature octopus figurine/incense holder (very limited)
-APC silkscreened tote bag
-Commemorative tour laminate
-Crowd-free merchandise shopping
Ah, thanks. I ended up going with the regular tickets in Austin. The premium wasn’t worth it for me.
