Tool return to Australia in February 2020 off the back of latest 'Fear Inoculum' album

Off the back of their latest album 'Fear Inoculum', triple Grammy® Award-winning Californian rockers Tool are heading back to Australia next year February. Audiences at Perth's RAC Arena will be first to witness the band's magical live show. Sydney's Qudos Bank Arena will host the next two shows, followed by a one-off date at the Brisbane Entertainment Centre. The band will then play a two-night finale at Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena before they fly to New Zealand for a pair of concerts at Auckland's Spark Arena.

Released in August 2019, 'Fear Inoculum' is Tool's first release in 13 years. It debuted at #1 in Australia and New Zealand (the band's third consecutive #1 album in both countries)—with #1 debut position also in Canada, Norway, and Belgium. In the USA, the band knocked Taylor Swift off the top spot and sold 270,000 units in its first week alone.

"'Fear Inoculum is a transcendent return." - Spin

"A formal masterpiece that should stand the test of time." - Rolling Stone

Currently winding up a huge 26-date tour in the USA, Danny Carey (drums), Justin Chancellor (bass), Adam Jones (guitar) and Maynard James Keenan's (vocals) groundbreaking, epic live show sees a band at the top of their powers. Their immersive live visual experience is as brilliant as the band's music itself, and not to be missed.

"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

"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

"They're so solid as a unit and at times it's like watching a magician perform a magic trick. How do they do it?" - Daily News

"Absolutely gobsmacking." - Kerrang

Since forming in 1990, Tool have released four multi-platinum studio albums: 'Undertow' (1993), 'Ænima' (1996), 'Lateralus' (2001) and '10,000 Days' (2006) plus two EPs: '72826' (1991) and 'Opiate' (1992) and the limited-edition boxset 'Salival' (2000).
