The Los Angeles-based band recently wrapped 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 more than a decade, has received widespread accolades with the Los Angeles Times calling it “impeccable;” the Chicago Tribune describing the performances as a “twisting multi-media rollercoaster of a concert;” and The Arizona Republic describing the shows as “a visually breathtaking night of dystopian art-rock spectacle.”
The Fear Inoculum album arrived on Aug. 30 and debuted at No.1 on Billboard’s Top 200, shattering sales and radio records while also earning widespread critical praise.
NPR said, “Fear Inoculum was worth the 13-year wait;” The Atlantic declared the release “precise and devastating;” Revolver dubbed the 10-track album “a masterpiece that will be dissected for years to come;” and Consequence of Sound said Fear Inoculum finds “TOOL in peak performance.”
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 GRAMMY Awards®: 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).
