Was browsing through Facebook this morning and notice a post from Billy saying that A Perfect Circle will be playing a show in Argentina with Tomahawk while they visit South America for Lollapalooza. The show will be at the Malvinas Argentinas Indoor Stadium on April 2nd, and tickets go on sale December 15th. Sounds like a great show!
An excellent article called An Oral History of the First Lollapalooza arrived in my inbox today, and while reading it I stumbled across this interesting quote from Lollapalooza co-founder and former Tool manager Ted Gardner: GARDNER: It wasn’t like, "It’s a girl band, so put them on."

A Perfect Circle seem to be one of the second tier acts, and other bands joining them on the three day festival include Foo Fighters, Ween, Muse, Deftones, Death From Above 1979 and The Cars.

In what will come as a surprise to very few, Tool have been officially confirmed as part of the Lollapalooza lineup. Other acts that I like on the bill include Janes Addiction, Beastie Boys, Lou Reed and Dan Deacon. The Festival spans several nights in August at Grant Park in Chicago. Sounds like a great gig!
Blair made a cryptic post on Toolarmy today: Anyone besides Buzz, Junior and I see that blistering line drive of a foul ball the other night at Dodger Stadium that damn near postponed a certain tour? Easier just to buy one of the damn things. Speaking of baseball (which I love), in planning my… vacation, while in Chi-Town the second week in August (when the weather’s nice), I was hoping… Read More »Lollapalooza Confirmed?
Blair has confirmed on Toolband/Army that Tool will be touring this summer. Presumably the US only, Tool break from recent trends and decide to tour prior to the release of the new album. I’m sure many of you have heard of an upcoming summer tour. Although I can’t announce any specific dates yet (as the bulk of the dates haven’t been confirmed), once they are finalized and official, we’ll be… Read More »Tool Summer Tour confirmed

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…
