I have tried to read through some of the posts on here, and frankly, there are just too many people that post shit. I wish you could come to a place like this and get some decent, well or seemingly well informed info. So bash and flame away, just hope to see a good post or two and maybe a bit of info.

What I have concluded myself.

That they are working on an album, but a buddy of mine with concertconfessions.com out of LA said that the riffs on the album are half done, but Maynard has all but gone MIA. SO will this end in time, and if so is that time frame too late for a April concert like this.

Also I hear that they may be playing Ozfest in Japan a few weeks prior, if that is the case then I would assume that the chances are better for this happening as well, but just the same, wouldn't the album be out first usually?

Thoughts, inside info, anything? either way I have my tickets for both weekends as I live here in La Quinta, but just was wondering if maybe someone knew something.

How many times has TOOL passed through California touring on 10,000 Days? 12 is my guess.

46+2=48

So it's slightly better odds.

just because 10,000 days was their latest album doesn't mean every "tour" since its release has been a 10,000 days tour. considering the majority of their sets from these recent tours you speak of have not been predominantly songs off that album, it doesn't really make sense to call them a 10,000 days tour, so to answer your question, probably once or twice.

look at the set lists from their last 2 LA shows..

http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/tool/2010/nokia-theatre-la-live-los-angeles-ca-53d46789.html

4/12 is 10,000 days from the first, 3/10 from the second

compare to an actual 10,000 days tour show in 07: http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/tool/2007/pearl-concert-theater-at-palms-casino-resort-las-vegas-nv-3d63d0b.html

5/10 songs off 10,000 days

I can't see GV booking a repeat headliner on the same "album cycle". A couple reunion acts and smaller acts have got a pass in this regard.

A new TOOL album is probably late summer 2013 at the soonest.

These clowns can't even get a 10,000 Days vinyl together in 7 years.

okay, nothing you just said has anything to do with your first post and my post...

yeah i'd prefer for them to have a new album out before they play coachella again, but I really won't complain if they play this year because they're way better (musically and live) than most bands that could headline

Maynard isn't so much MIA as making wine and doing Puscifer shows.

I saw TOOL in St. Paul in June and in the local paper they asked Maynard about a new Tool album and he said that he'd just metaphorically had a baby (Condition of My Parole) and he wasn't ready to get back in there and write lyrics for a new Tool album. But that it was on the way...


That being said, I'm gonna go see A Perfect Circle tonight here in Las Vegas :D

^ so pissed I missed day one of that. Puscifer the next day was better than I thought they'd be.

Thank you guys that replied with real answers. Would be great to see them again, but I am not too sure if it is going to happen. They put on such a good show.
