The tour news arrives as the Los Angeles-based band wraps up a sold out Australasian tour with back-to-back sold out performances at Auckland’s Spark Arena, happening later this week. The Sydney Morning Herald described the live offering as “an immersive art-rock experience that forced you to feel a little of everything. It was an intricate collage of light, sound and imagery.” The Fear Inoculum Tour, which has seen the band performing in some cities for the first time in over a decade, has received widespread accolades–Los Angeles Times called it, “impeccable,” the Chicago Tribune described the performances as “a twisting multimedia rollercoaster of a concert” and The Arizona Republic hailed the shows as “a visually breathtaking night of dystopian art-rock spectacle.”

Fear Inoculum” released on August 30, following years of great anticipation. The album debuted at number one on Billboard’s Top 200, shattering sales and radio records, while also earning widespread critical praise. NPR said, “Fear Inoculum was worth the 13-year wait,” The Atlantic declared the release as “precise and devastating,” Revolver dubbed the 10-track album “a masterpiece that will be dissected for years to come” and Consequence of Sound said, “Fear Inoculum finds Tool in peak performance.”

Tool formed in 1990, releasing four multi-platinum studio albums: “Undertow” (1993), “Ænima” (1996), “Lateralus” (2001), “10,000 Days” (2006); two extended plays: “72826” (1991) and “Opiate” (1992) and the limited-edition boxset, “Salival” (2000). The band has won four Grammy Awards®–Best Metal Performance (“Ænima”/1998), Best Metal Performance (“Schism”/2002), Best Recording Package (“10,000 Days”/2007) and Best Metal Performance (“7empest”/2020). Tool is Danny Carey (drums), Justin Chancellor (bass), Adam Jones (guitar) and Maynard James Keenan (vocals).
