Tool Postpone North American Tour Dates In April and May

Tool have announced that their April and May North American shows will be moved to later dates.

As COVID-19 has gone from a worrisome phenomenon to a global pandemic, pretty much every tour, festival, or musical outing has been canceled or postponed due to quarantine against the coronavirus. While some bands are holding out hope that their spring touring plans will remain intact, many are one by one rescheduling their upcoming tour dates under the assumption that this might take longer than people originally thought. Now, GRAMMY winners Tool have decided to play it safe, announcing that their upcoming April and May dates in North America will be postponed.

The band announced their plans to postpone these dates via social media earlier today, with the following message:

TOOL’s April 16 to May 5 North American tour dates have been postponed.

TOOL regrets to confirm that the first leg of their upcoming North American tour has been postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak. They wish everyone well during this difficult period and hope to see everyone again very soon.

Obviously, this is a bummer, but it’s totally understandable. Better to be safe than put yourself, your fans, or others at risk.
