A Perfect Circle Announce Spring 2017 U.S. Tour
Maynard James Keenan will be a busy man in 2017. We've seen Tool already turn up as a headliner on an upcoming festival and there's the ever-present talk of a new album, but you can also look for one of Keenan's other bands -- A Perfect Circle -- returning to the scene.
The band just announced a monthlong spring trek that will see them hitting venues across the U.S for the first time since 2011. A Perfect Circle had previously announced a Los Angeles show at the Hollywood Bowl and their appearance at a trio of rock festivals, but now they've filled in the blanks between those shows.
The tour officially gets underway with a two-night stand at The Pearl in Las Vegas on April 7 and 8, before winding through the southwestern U.S., dipping a bit into the Midwest and hitting the southeastern coast of the U.S. before jetting back across the U.S. for their May 7 performance at Los Angeles' Hollywood Bowl.
In addition to the touring, fans can look for A Perfect Circle resuming work in the studio on a new album. A Perfect Circle guitarist and co-founder Billy Howerdel states, "Getting back to writing music with A Perfect Circle is a great way to start the new year." This would be the band's first album since 2004's eMOTIVe disc. In addition to Howerdel and Keenan, the current lineup includes guitarist James Iha, drummer Jeff Freidl and bassist Matt McJunkins.
See all of A Perfect Circle's scheduled dates listed below. Tickets for all non-festival dates will go on sale this Friday (Jan. 13) at 10AM local time.
