Tool Huge 2019 North American Tour Leak Revealed


Welcome to Rockville have uploaded a new video hyping a major announcement with Tool’s “Mantra” playing in the background, and the Tool eye is visible. Welcome to Rockville takes place on May 3rd to 5th at Metropolitan Park in Jacksonville, Florida. This appears to be the first 2019 Tool North American tour date.

Danny Wimmer Presents also promotes two other North American festivals, though there will be some changes next year after their split with AEG. On May 10th to 12th DWP will promote a new musical festival in North Carolina, and on May 17th to 19th they will hold the new Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival at MAPFRE Stadium in Columbus, Ohio. Sonic Temple will replace the Rock on the Range festival. Many artists who play one DWP festival tend to play others, so Tool showing up in North Carolina or Columbus wouldn’t be a huge surprise.

Tool played at the final Rock on the Range festival in 2018, one of their only few limited North American 2018 tour dates, as the band have been focused on recording their new album, and Maynard James Keenan has been touring with A Perfect Circle to promote their new album Eat the Elephant.

Tool are set to release their new album in 2019, and they have also already announced a summer 2019 European tour kicking off in June, featuring festival appearances with Alice In Chains and Smashing Pumpkins.
