Tool return to New Zealand in February 2020

In celebration of their freshly-released fifth studio album 'Fear Inoculum', Grammy Award-winning Californian rockers Tool will be performing a pair of shows happening at Auckland's Spark Arena in February next year.

Tool (whose members are Danny Carey, Justin Chancellor, Adam Jones and Maynard James Keenan) are currently on a mammoth 26-date tour in the US. Their groundbreaking, epic live show sees them at the top of their powers—with their immersive live visual experience as brilliant as their genre-defining music.

"Maynard is a joy to watch. The light, laser and video show is something else… At times spectacular, the visuals are the perfect accompaniment. Could other bands be this adventurous in 2019 and succeed to this extent?" – LA Weekly

"The visuals were provocative, with laser lights and an LED screen featuring a variety of videos—fetuses, aliens, skeletons, emaciated figures, insects, water, and fire—in line with the band’s romanticising of doom and destruction." - Entertainment Voice

After breaking onto the rock music scene in 1990, the band have released four multi-platinum studio albums 'Undertow' (1993), 'Ænima' (1996), 'Lateralus' (2001) and '10,000 Days' (2006), two EPs '72826' (1991) and 'Opiate' (1992), and one limited-edition boxset 'Salival' (2000). Released in August 2019, 'Fear Inoculum' debuted at #1 in Australia and New Zealand (the band's third consecutive #1 album in both countries). Critics were united in praise, with Rolling Stone describing it as: "a formal masterpiece that should stand the test of time."

"Absolutely gobsmacking." – Kerrang

"The draw of the performance… was the chance to hear the group's intricate, multi-movement songs at a pulverising volume that still had shape and detail thanks to an impeccable live mix." – Los Angeles Times

Don't miss the multi-sensory, groundbreaking experience that is Tool, live in concert next year!
