TOOL will hit the road for an extensive tour of U.S., Europe, and the U.K. in 2022, the band announced on Monday.
The lauded hard rock outfit is set to go on tour once again beginning on January 10th at Eugene, OR’s Matthew Knight Arena. The tour will take TOOL to arenas around the U.S. throughout January, February, and March before heading to Europe and the U.K. for shows throughout late April and May. The tour will feature support from Blonde Redhead and The Acid Helps at select dates.
“It is with great pleasure I get to announce our return to the road,” said Danny Carey. “These past 18 months have been trying to say the least but from great trials come great lessons and great rewards. We are genuinely looking forward to sharing them with you.”
The new batch of 2022 TOOL tour dates effectively replace the band’s planned 2020 tour, which was axed as the coronavirus picture worsened. When the 2020 TOOL tour was canceled, the band noted that it would not attempt to reschedule in 2021 due to the continued uncertainty with regard to COVID-19.
The band dealt with the effects of COVID-19 on a personal level, as well. Keenan reportedly contracted the virus two separate times in 2020—first in February while on tour in support of the band’s highly anticipated new LP, Fear Inoculum, and then again later in the year. Keenan later opened up about his second COVID-19 diagnosis on a February 2021 episode of Apple Music‘s The Strombo Show, during which he detailed his harrowing experience battling COVID-19 and pneumonia at once.
As Keenan noted simply in a post announcing the 2022 tour, “Let’s finish what we started. Shall we?”
