While we’re still no closer to a new Tool album than we were a decade ago (or are we?), the band are at least getting out and playing some places they haven’t for a while. Just last week they announced that they’d be playing the Governor’s Ball festival, their first time in New York since they were touring behind a new album. Now they’ve announced their first Boston show since 2006, as they’ll be playing the Boston Calling festival Memorial Day Weekend. Tickets for the festival are already on sale.
It’s a pretty diverse lineup, but much like Governor’s Ball, Tool is the only band that would classify as “heavy.” Pup’s punk rock falls under that umbrella, and if you’re an emo fan, you’ll be pyshced about Piebald and Modern Baseball. Weezer, Sigur Ros, Run the Jewels and Chance the Rapper are on the lineup too, but it doesn’t look like single day tickets are available (at least not yet), so if you want to see Tool in Boston, you’re going to have to pony up $245 for a three-day pass.
