Tool are set to play the 3Arena, Dublin, on Friday, May 6, 2022, as part of their upcoming European tour. It will be the Los Angeles band's first tour of the continent since the release of Fear Inoculum in 2019. The eagerly-awaited trek kicks off on April 23 in Copenhagen.
“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.”
In his review of Fear Inoculum for Hot Press, Edwin McFee wrote that, in "an era where everyone is used to bite-sized portions, serving up a mammoth feast is a vintage Tool move."
"This is a labyrinthine listen, loaded with poly-rhythms, primal riffs and powerful vocals," he resumed. "Featuring seven songs, plus three interludes, the 85-minute opus explores themes of growing older and wiser.
"...In short, despite the considerable lay-off, Tool haven’t missed a beat."
Tickets for Tool's Dublin gig go on sale this Friday, October 1, at 9am. See Ticketmaster for more information.
