So, Tool Are Touring Australia In February Next Year

Written by Alex Gallagher on November 15, 2019

This is not a drill. After rumours began circulating earlier this month, it is now confirmed – Tool are touring Australia in February 2020.

The lauded alternative metal outfit will return after seven years away to play arena shows in Perth, Sydney, Brisbane and Melbourne next February in support of fifth studio album Fear Inoculum, released back in August.

Their first album in 13 years, Fear Inoculum was the band’s second album to debut at #1 in Australia, and their third consecutive #1 on the Billboard Top 200.

The band’s live shows tend to be pretty epic affairs – pairing the group’s well-honed performance with immersive live visuals. In a review of the band’s recent, sold-out Staples Center gig, LA Weekly wrote that frontman Maynard James Keenan is a “joy to watch” onstage.

“The light, laser and video show is something else too. At times spectacular, the visuals are the perfect accompaniment to the arty noise.

“Like their albums, the set feels like a classical event; everything fits together, everything flows. Are Tool an anomaly? Could other bands be this adventurous in 2019 and succeed to this extent?”

Sounds pretty bloody good to us.

Check out tour dates below. Tickets go on sale next Friday, 22nd November, with a Frontier members pre-sale kicking off from Wednesday, 20th November, which you can sign up for here.
