Due to overwhelming demand from fans storming the box office to catch Californian prog metal titans Tool, this morning the Frontier Touring Company have announced a second show in both Melbourne & Sydney, on Sunday 28th April at Rod Laver Arena and Saturday 4th May at Allphones Arena respectively.

Tickets for both these second concerts will be on sale through Ticketek at 9:30am AEDT TODAY!

Taking a break from recording their hugely anticipated fifth studio album, Tool are set to tour Australia.

Enigmatic vocalist Maynard James Keenan, inventive guitarist Adam Jones, virtuoso bassist Justin Chancellor, and incomparable drummer Danny Carey will headline shows at arenas in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, and Adelaide this April/May.

For more than two decades Tool have been sonically breaking ground, pushing boundaries, and built up enormous critical acclaim and an equally impressive since the release of their debut EP Opiate, and four subsequent, mind-altering visions of dense, textural metal and prog-lined rock.

Tool have perfected a genre-transcending sound that can be likened to fine art, interlaced with atypical time signatures, intricate drumming patterns and a resonance with a force that awakens the senses.

Beyond their groundbreaking sonic work, Tool have also come to prominence for their efforts in unifying the arts. Some of their countless contributions to the arts include the Grammy® award winning 3D album packaging for 10,000 Days, Adam Jones’ music videos that stand alone as pieces of cinematic brilliance ,and live shows that include elaborate lighting installations, spectacular laser displays and video displays as brilliant as the performances themselves.

The last time Tool toured Australia was for the Big Day Out in 2011, along with two sideshows, and knowing the lengthy breaks the quartet takes between touring schedules, let alone albums, there’s every reason to catch their latest multi-sensory experience.

If nothing else, you might even catch some of that long overdue new material in the live setting.
