Tool North America Tour 2014

Tool have recently announced that they will be playing a series of show as part of a mini-tour through the western parts of the USA and also a couple of shows in Mexico. It’s unclear at this point in time whether there will be further shows announced, but for now Tool will be appearing at the following dates and venues:

  • Tuesday, March 4: Spokane, WA @ Spokane Arena
  • Thursday, March 6: Portland, OR @ MODA CENTER
  • Friday, March 7: Eugene, OR @ Matthew Knight Arena

  • Tuesday, March 25: Houston, TX @ Toyota Center
  • Thursday, March 27: Phoenix, AZ @ US Airways Center


Tickets for the Mexican dates are already on sale. Hopefully those attending have already got theirs as I believe one or both is sold out! According to Toolband tickets are still available for the Mexico City show via Ticketmaster.

Tickets for the US shows go on sale as follows:

  • Portland, Eugene and San Francisco will go on-sale on Friday(24th January).
  • Spokane and Reno on-sales will go on-sale on Saturday (25th January).
  • Fresone, Las Vegas, San Diego, Texas and Phoenix will go on-sale on Friday 25th of February. Sales start at 10am local time except for Houston which is at 12.

Tickets will be via Ticketmaster, but please check with your local venue to confirm. At this stage it doesn’t appear that there will be pre-sales for general tickets. There will be pre-sales for VIP tickets (more details below).

Rumoured shows

There are several shows that have been rumoured but not confirmed in any way. Sources have indicated that this tour will be short and include West Coast USA and Mexico only. I wouldn’t be making plans to travel to any of these locations for shows until officially confirmed by Toolband. On top of that, the two rumoured Mexican dates in Monterrey and Guadalajara I strongly suspect will not happen. Here’s the rumours list:

  • Guadalajara 23rd March
  • Monterrey 16th March

All rumours I’ve heard regarding shows have no been officially added to the tour. Danny has indicated that there won’t be a show in LA on this tour. I suspect we’ve now got all the dates for the tour (though perhaps there could be an extra TX show if ticket sales are strong enough). If you’re east of the Rockies – don’t get your hopes up!
