Tool Tickets for Sale
Tool tickets will be available soon to see this alternative metal group as they bring that art rock to the stage in 2012 for a winter tour that will take the band throughout the United States. The fans have been clamoring for another album but they will take this month long excursion instead. From January 14, 2012 to February 8, 2012, Tool kicks off this concert series with a show at the Reno Event Center in Reno, Nevada.
This is going to be a busy year for Maynard James Keenan. Keenan begins the winter with Tool and ends the winter tours with a month long journey with his side project, Puscifer. The Tool tour may lack a certain new album, but the fans should not have to wait very long. According to Keenan, his band mates have been busy writing lyrics and the group is working on Tool's fifth studio album. Keenan and crew have not released a new album since 2006, so if the group were to release its first new album in six years those swarms of fans would be the first lucky few to listen to a few new songs live.

The group Tool emerged in the 1990s as a hard rock band that seemed to transcend the typical the music of the genre. They defined the progressive rock movement, accentuating this music type with a certain degree of art rock. The band took shape after each if its original band members moved to Los Angeles. Lead singer Maynard James Keenan, lead guitarist Adam Jones, bassist Paul D'Amour, and drummer Danny Carey practiced for two years before emerging from the studio space and playing a show as Tool.
They began with a demo album 72826 in 1991 and followed through with the EP Opiate in 1992. The first studio album came in 1993. Undertow went double platinum and featured two singles, "Sober" and "Prison Sex". Both songs landed on the U.S. Mainstream Rock chart. The album and the legendary comedian Bill Hicks took the group to new heights of popularity. The video for "Sober" even won the "Best Video By a New Artist" from Billboard. Tool followed with a second album, Aenima. Aenima came out in 1996. By now, Justin Chancellor replaced D'Amour as the bassist.
Tool enjoyed triple-platinum sales and the number two status on the Billboard 200. The album released four singles: "Stinkfist", "H", "Aenema", and "Forty-Six & 2". Each of the singles landed on the U.S. Mainstream Rock charts. Just as the group toured for multiple years on the first album, Tool took four years on the road to support this second album.
Two more number one albums followed - Lateralus in 2001 and 10,000 Days in 2006. Lateralus went double platinum and 10,000 Days went platinum. "Schism", Parabola", Vicarious", and "The Pot" all reached the Top 10 in the charts. Tool began to spend less and less time together, as Keenan immersed himself in side projects.
