Saturday, May 2, at KeyBank Center
John Scher/Metropolitan Entertainment and Magic City Productions present TOOL at KeyBank Center in Buffalo at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 2, along with special guest Blonde Redhead.
TOOL, who recently took home the Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance for the song “7empest,” has added the Buffalo stop as part of an extensive spring tour of North America.
Tickets will go on sale to the general public at 10 a.m. ET Friday, Feb. 28, via www.Tickets.com. A limited number of VIP packages will be available exclusively to TOOL Army members via www.Toolband.com/VIP-package at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 26. Full ticket details are below.
The tour news arrives as the Los Angeles-based band wraps up a sold-out Australasian tour, with the final two shows of the trek 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.
“Fear Inoculum” (http://smarturl.it/TOOLFIa) arrived on Aug. 30 following years of anticipation. The album debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 200, shattering sales and radio records while also earning widespread critical praise.
TOOL formed in 1990, releasing four multi-Platinum studio albums: “Undertow” (1993), “Ænima” (1996), “Lateralus” (2001) and “10,000 Days” (2006); two EPs: “72826” (1991) and “Opiate” (1992); and the limited-edition boxset “Salival” (2000). The band has won four Grammys: Best Metal Performance (1998, “Ænima”), Best Metal Performance (2002, “Schism”), Best Recording Package (2007, “10,000 Days”) and Best Metal Performance (2020, “7empest”).
TOOL is Danny Carey (drums), Justin Chancellor (bass), Adam Jones (guitar) and Maynard James Keenan (vocals).
