Tool announce 2019 European tour

Tool band

Hot on the heels of yesterday’s announcement that they’ll headline the UK’s Download festival next year (opens in new tab), Tool have now confirmed further European shows for next summer.

Maynard James Keenan and co will kick off the run at Berlin’s Mercedes-Benz Arena on June 2 and wrap up with a performance at the Altice Arena in Lisbon on July 2.

Along with the arena dates, Tool will also play several other festivals during the trip.

Find a full list of Tool’s 2019 tour dates below.

Tool have been working on the highly anticipated follow-up to 2006’s 10,000 Days, which is expected to arrive in 2019.

Vocalist Keenan gave an update on Twitter back in September, saying: “Update. Scratch vox tracked a while ago. Adam Jones deep in guitars now. Final vox after. Step back. Adjust. Mix. Adjust. Re-adjust. Master. Adjust. Re-adjust. Long way to go but much closer. #Tool #2019.”

In April, Keenan also spoke to Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich on his Beats 1 show It’s Electric where he addressed the delay in getting the album done.

With so many dates planned for next summer, could the live shows tie in with a possible album release? We can only hope.
