According to Mitch123 on Toolarmy, there is some speculation that Tool might be headlining this years Lollapalooza Festival. Not a shred of evidence to back this up as far as I can see, so don’t go booking your plan tickets just yet…
Tool posts regarding touring
According to a recent post on Toolshed: Though all has been quiet on the Tool front for some time, a promoter wrote in today to say he’s heard rumblings of possible Tool shows in 2009. We’ll keep an eye on this and keep you all posted. Personally, I could maybe see a late 2009 tour, but that would be about it. Presuming they maybe hit the recording studio soon, or… Read More »Tool Touring 2009?
A recent Ebay item has one of the signed Tool posters from the last US Tour: This is a One Of A Kind, No Duplicates, NOT a Print, 100% Authentic, Rare Concert Poster from SLC, with ART WORK by ADAM JONES, and signed by the band members of TOOL: Maynard James Keenan, Adam Jones, Danny Carey, and Justin Chancellor. Set in an Apple Wood Frame with Glass Plate and purple Professional… Read More »Signed Tool Poster
Blair posted on Toolband/Army today an article talking about Danny‘s recent injury. Apparently he was attacked by a Sea Urchin or Scorpion Fish. Lucky it wasn’t a Sting Ray I guess… Anyway, he elaborates to say that he’s had two surgeries on the hand, and that there probably won’t be any Tool or Volto! shows for a little while.
Blair from Toolband/Army took some time today to “clarify” an email he received questioning the April Newsletter – the one about the business meeting. Here’s his response: That mentioned in the April (1) newsletter had NOTHING to do with the all-Tool issue of “Revolver” Magazine, although at this time I am still not able to disclose any further information about any decision made by the band as to whether it’s… Read More »Two Tool Projects
While I’m still not convinced of these tour rumours, word has it that Tool are playing in Dayton in August.
According to dirtyrockstar on Toolarmy, he heard them saying that Tool would be on tour soon on 97.1 (FM I presume) in Dallas. Apparently the station will be giving away tickets. Not too sure about this to be honest. I’d like it to be true, but I don’t know that I’d expect Tool to tour again until after a new album had been released. Unless of course they’re recorded something… Read More »Tool Tour Rumour
As some of you know, my wife has been pregnant for some time, about 9 months in fact! After this period of gestation, she’s about ready to pop, and the due date just happens to be this coming Friday. As a result, Fourtheye posts may be a little sporadic in the next couple of weeks, depending on how things go. Since things are quiet, I doubt you’ll miss me, but… Read More »Advance Warning
Pigmyl0vecircus from Toolarmy shared with us today a couple of clips from Tool‘s Bonnaroo show last year. They’re great quality and well worth checking out. If anyone has a full copy of this video then I’d be very interested in hearing from them…. Schism Flood
Well today I have good news and bad news for you all. Lets start with the good. According to a recent MTV interview with Maynard at the Grammys, he claims that Tool will “start writing the new Tool record right away”. Nice to have a short turnaround for a change. If this is the case the I’d say we can expect a new album in about 12 months time. The… Read More »Good News, Bad News
