With talk of a new Tool album set for an unspecified 2019 release, fans have been wondering if a North American tour would be in the near future. The band has already announced a European tour, which will begin in June of 2019 and end in July, but no North American dates have been officially announced.
Recently, according to Alternative Nation, the yearly music festival known as Welcome To Rockville uploaded a new teaser video, promising a "major announcement." In the video the Tool song "Mantra" can be heard, along with a logo in the background commonly associated with Tool. So it's definitely shaping up to look like Tool has at least one forthcoming tour date.
That said, Welcome To Rockville is a music festival created by Danny Wimmer Presents, which promotes a number of different festivals across the United States. Furthermore, Danny Wimmer Presents is set to debut two new festivals this summer, one on North Carolina and one in Columbus, Ohio. As many of Danny Wimmer's festivals feature the same acts from one to the other, it's a good possibility that Tool will be popping up as headliners at a number of festivals this summer across the United States. This does not, however, necessarily denote a specific tour, but definitely sets an expectation that Tool could be priming up to announce a full tour.
