In June Tool announced that they will be having a short run of tour dates in October 2016. The tour dates are based around two festival shows – Aftershock in Sacramento and the Voodoo Music & Arts Experience in New Orleans.
Dates and Venues
The currently announced tour dates are below. It’s expected this time around that other shows will not be added:
Saturday 22nd October – Aftershock Festival Sacramento, CA. Tickets on sale now at the Aftershock website!
Monday October 24th – Salt Lake City, UT @ Maverik Center. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 10th at 10:00am MDT at all Smith’s Tix locations, smithstix.com and the venue box office.

Sunday 30th October* – Voodoo Music& Arts Experience New Orleans, LO. Tickets on sale now at the Voodoofest website!
- the day that Tool play on the Voodoofest hasn’t been confirmed yet, but going by the tour schedule it’s likely to be Sunday.
Tickets and Pre-sales
Tickets for most of the shows are available via the usual ticket agencies. Expect them to sell fast, so be prepared – pre-register for the ticket agency well before the tickets actually go on sale! And have your credit card handy!
Toolarmy will have pre-sales, but these appear to be the $500 VIP tickets only. The Toolarmy store has changed in the last week, so take a read of the information provided by Blair sooner rather than later if you are planning on using it to get tickets:
ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS ABOUT TOOLARMY PASSWORDS AND MEMBERSHIP
I was hoping to enjoy the rest of 666 with an Eagletail or two, but I understand that some of you have questions about the ToolArmy password reset process and about your TA membership in general. Okay, that’s understandable – the LINK below should answer many of your questions (including what to do if you forgot your original email address), but to answer one of the most common questions – EXISTING TA MEMBERS DO NOT NEED TO PURCHASE A NEW MEMBERSHIP to access the new webstore. Your existing membership will be honored (you just need to reset your password).
