Tool will return to the road in 2022.

Maynard James Keenan and company have announced a huge world tour for next year, marking their return to the stage since playing their pre-pandemic show in March 2020.

The U.S. leg is set to kick off January 10 in Eugene, Oregon, and will wrap up March 20 in Cleveland. A European leg will then launch in April.

“It is with great pleasure I get to announce our return to the road,” says drummer Danny Carey. “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.”

Keenan adds, “Let’s finish what we started. Shall we?”

Tickets for the U.S. shows go on sale this Friday, October 1, at 10 a.m. local time. Members of the Tool Army fan club will have access to a pre-sale.

Tool had been touring last year in support of their 2019 comeback album Fear Inoculum when the COVID-19 pandemic hit. Keenan himself contracted the virus twice.
