Tool expand 2020 tour, add Author & Punisher as opener
Tool recently expanded their tour into 2020 with a leg of January and February dates, and now they’ve revealed that one-man industrial act Author & Punisher, aka Tristan Shone, will open those shows. “This is a huge honor that I don’t take lightly,” Tristan says. “I don’t always get to take the full arsenal of drone machines due to their weight and pain but certainly on this run, everything is in play. I love you all and I’m sorry for future back pain and inevitable hearing loss.”
The run of 2020 shows begins with two San Diego shows, and Tool have expanded the tour to add a third, which happens on January 13 at Viejas Arena. Tickets go on general sale Friday 11/22 at 10 AM PST, with a fanclub presale starting Wednesday 11/20 at 10 AM. See Tool’s updated dates below.
Meanwhile, catch Author & Punisher out on the road with Cattle Decapitation and Atheist.
Tool played Newark’s Prudential Center on Saturday (11/16), and they stop in Brooklyn for a show atBarclays Center on Tuesday 11/19.
