Tool have added a second London date to their UK tour, “due to huge demand” according to promoters LiveNation.

The Los Angeles prog-metal quartet will now follow their previously-announced May 9 show in the capital with a second gig the following evening, May 10.

On their first visit to the UK and Ireland since the release of 2019’s Fear Inoculum, Maynard James Keenan’s band will also play Manchester's AO Arena on May 2, Birmingham's Resorts World Arena on May 4 and Dublin's 3Arena on May 6 and the London The O2 Arena on May 9. Tickets for all dates are now on-sale.

“It is with great pleasure I get to announce our return to the road,” said drummer Danny Carey when the original shows were announced on September 27. “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.”
