Though more and more dates started to slip out last week, Tool had kept quiet about a short Winter tour. Well this past weekend, the band’s website finally confirmed that they’ll be hitting North American for a short trek this coming January/ February.
However, chances are you already knew that since most of the shows have already gone on sale via Ticketmaster. In addition to confirming the dates we already knew or learned about through Ticketmaster, the website also revealed that there are at least two shows still to be announced. The tour itself will run from January 14 to February 8 (just before frontman Maynard James Keenan hits the road with Puscifer).
While the tour has been confirmed, there’s still much speculation regarding who might be opening for Tool. For at least one of the shows, Ticketmaster lists Intronaut as the supporting act. Whether Intronaut will be opening for Tool during the entire tour or on just select dates is unclear.
