Tool Announce Spring North American Tour Dates

Tool are following up their massive 2019 with a packed 2020, announcing a slew of U.S. tour dates.

Tool had a huge 2019, and already have a jam-packed 2020 ahead of them. Following an earlier announcement for a handful of tour dates in the US, the band have now announced a North American tour for this spring. The trek will go across the United States and Canada, and includes an appearance at Bonnaroo Festival.

Blonde Redhead will open the first half of the tour from April 16 to May 5, and The Acid Help will open from May 29 to June 23, excluding Bonnaroo. Tickets for most of the shows go on sale this Friday February 28 at 10am local time, but the Sioux Falls and St. Louis dates will go on sale at 12pm local time. Tool Army members can buy VIP packages at this link starting Wednesday February 26 at 10am local time.
