Tool announce massive 54-date tour for 2022


Tool will the return to the road in 2022 for an expansive tour that includes shows across the US, UK, and Europe.

All told, Tool will play 54 concerts between January and May of next year. The tour officially kicks off on January 10th in Eugene, Oregon — the location of the next show Tool had been scheduled to play before canceling their 2020 tour due to the pandemic.

It’s been a particularly rough pandemic for frontman Maynard James Keenan, who contracted COVID-19 not once but twice. The singer surmised that he likely contracted COVID the first time during the band’s February 2020 tour of Australia and New Zealand. He also revealed that he had been dealing with longterm symptoms, include lung damage. Thankfully, earlier this year, he told Heavy Consequence that “everything’s grand” when it came to his health.

For the North American leg of the tour, Blonde Redhead and The Acid Helps will split opening duties.

“It is with great pleasure I get to announce our return to the road,” said drummer Danny Carey. “These past 18 months have been trying to say the least but from great trials come great lessons and great rewards. We are genuinely looking forward to sharing them with you.”

Tickets go on sale starting Friday, October 1st at 10:00 a.m. local time via Ticketmaster, with pre-sales beginning as early as Wednesday, September 29th, for select dates.
