TOOL Singer Tells Fans To 'Relax' About Sold-Out Shows

Launch Radio Networks reports: TOOL singer Maynard James Keenan has posted a message at the band's official web site,, after fans began expressing disappointment over not being able to get tickets for the group's upcoming North American mini-tour. Keenan wrote, "Many people are complaining about the sold out shows. Relax. We're doing a full-on tour at the end of the summer which goes almost everywhere. And in the new year, we'll go almost everywhere else. These are just a handful of warm-up dates. There's nothing much we can do to outwit the scalpers. If you have patience, just don't buy the tickets from them. Just wait until August."

TOOL's tour starts next Tuesday (May 2) in Seattle, the day that the band's new "10,000 Days" album arrives in stores. The trek runs through May 22, where it finishes in Boston.

The 15-date mini-tour will follow the group's headlining performance this Sunday (April 30) at the Coachella festival in Indio, California.

"Vicarious", the first single from "10,000 Days", debuted in the Top Five of every major rock radio chart this week.
