27 Years
Last Updated: 11/2009

fter a five year hiatus, Tool released 10,000 Days - an album that both captivated & polarized many devoted + casual fans. To some, the album expresses a direction different, unique & new for the music of Tool; an opinion that clearly Tool advocates not only lyrically (i.e.: Third Eye) but also musically. Regardless, the album went platinum & #1 when released in over 15 countries including: America, Great Britain, Australia & New Zealand (beating out the long awaited Pearl Jam album two-fold). Before debarking on a tour for Festival + Headline performances, Tool performed in small theatres in the US after headlining the Coachella Festival. Tickets for the US mini-tour sold out in under a minute for even the largest of the venues for the mini-tour (Fox Theatre, Detroit) & tickets went for as little of face value to hundreds + reported thousands of dollars for the very prime seats. Relatively early on in the recent tour, it is anticipated that Tool will slowly unveil new material throughout dates. Be patient. More to come - that we can be sure. It has been noted that Tool no longer feels the desire to perform certain older songs from their extensive library as the meanings, content & overall "feel" of the songs are not where Tool are at, musically. Interestingly enough, there is no mention of what tunes those may be - perhaps the lack of them in the set for this era is the answer?
