Tool 2012 USA Tour

The Tool Winter 2012 Tool tour is currently on sale, mainly via Ticketmaster, but check with your local venue. According to a range of sources on the net, the remaining shows in Florida, Virginia and North Carolina should all go on sale on the 7th of January.

Dates confirmed so far:

  • 14th Jan, Reno Events Center, Reno, NV
  • 15th Jan, Mandalay Bay Events Center, Las Vegas, NV
  • 17th Jan, Tuscon Arena, Tucson AZ
  • 18th Jan, Tingley Coliseum, Albuquerque NM
  • 20th Jan, Verizon Arena, Dallas, TX
  • 21st Jan, Verizon Arena, Dallas, TX
  • 24th Jan, Huntington Center, Toledo, OH
  • 25th Jan, Air Canada Centre, Toronto, Ontario
  • 26th Jan, John Labatt Centre, London, Ontario
  • 28th Jan, TD Garden, Boston, MA
  • 29th Jan, Susquehanna Bank Center, Camden, NJ
  • 31st Jan, Mohegan Sun Arena, Uncasville, CT
  • 1st Feb, Izod Center, East Rutherford, NJ
  • 3rd Feb, Hampton Coliseum, Hampton, VA
  • 4th Feb, Bojangles Coliseum, Charlotte, NC
  • 6th Feb, Bank Atlantic Center, Ft Lauderdale, FL
  • 7th Feb, UCF Arena, Orlando, FL
  • 8th Feb, Gwinnet Arena, Duluth, GA

I think it’s unlikely that any more date will be added to the tour! Sources tell me not to expect any more shows in the “West”. However Coachella rumours persist and may explain the lack of California shows – this didn’t happen!

Intronaut are mentioned as the support act for the Toronto gig, and they’re expected to support for the first half of the tour. Yob have mentioned that they are supporting for the second half starting in Boston.

I wonder what kind of “surprises” are in store for the setlist… APC recently previewed By & Down live, maybe Tool will follow suit if they have a new song ready in time… unlikely, but I guess it’s a possibility.

Dallas, TX (Jan 20, Verizon Theater) (Confirmed by local radio station)

Toledo, OH (Jan 24, Huntington Center)

A bit of both, happens every time they announce a tour. First thoughts are awesome another tour, then I start to think about getting the time off of work and trying to get great seats. But yes I am super stoked bu this news!!

Normally time off would not be a problem, but I am opening a new store in mid January and will basically be living there for a few weeks. Hopefully I will be able to plan my days off around this mini tour.

why no NY? NY is a definately a market where TOOL will sell out, and they can also charge more money per ticket cuz New Yorkers will pay!

“Word is that these dates will be the first ones on the tour, and that there should be some setlist “surprises”…” ~Hellboy

Would you care to elaborate on the “suprises?” That is exceptionally good to hear, along with the possibility of a Chicago show!

Maynard cant even sing the end of vicarious, a song off their latest album…highly unlikely he’ll be able to sing the older songs he sang when his voice was pristine

I hope Hellboy does not divulge, then they would not be surprises! I, for one, am going to be vigilant about staying away from the spoilers. Last year was so much fun at the New Orleans show not knowing what to expect..and we were not disappointed.

If I get rich quick, I’d go to lalaland to see em but this is doubtful. The only spoiler I’d like to know if I don’t go is new material, maybe the pot video. Here’s to hoping that 2012 starts off well for everybody!

I’ve always wondered why he doesn’t just sing that last part clean. It sounded okay when he did it at the start of this year with the megaphone-effect. For exaaampleeee:

I thought the reason Maynard left the last part out was not due to the fact he couldn’t sing it, but the irony of the crowd singing it back to him.
Crowd – Vicariously I, live while the whole world dies

Kinda obvious

According to someone on Phish.net there may be a Boston show on the 28th. http://forum.phish.net/?thread=1323480494
The post is from three days ago, before anything outside of the West was confirmed/speculated, and now there’s a New Jersey show the next day… possibly true?
