Tool Will Headline The Governors Ball Music Festival In 2017 [Report]

first_imgTool fans have been waiting patiently as their favorite band works on the highly-anticipated follow up album to 10,000 Days (2006). Tool has toured very infrequently over the last few years, though they did play a handful of performance in 2016. It seems that they’ll continue that trend with more scattered performances in 2017, according to a report from the reputable source, Consequence of Sound.CoS is reporting that Tool will be among the headliners for this year’s Governors Ball Music Festival, which is set to take place in New York, NY from June 2nd through the 4th. This would be Tool’s first New York performance in 11 years! Consequence of Sound also has a great track record for reporting information before it is released, as they correctly predicted LCD Soundsystem’s reunion and many major festival headliners over the last few years.Despite all of that, Governors Ball is keeping their lips sealed on the subject. Their only response to these reports: “The full Governors Ball lineup will be announced early next year, at which point tickets will also go on sale.”If Tool does headline at Governors Ball, this of course raises questions about the band’s future plans. Will they be releasing the new album next year? Will there be more tour dates? While this remains to be seen, we’re very optimistic about this exciting news!last_img read more

Indiana Republican endorses Messer’s senate run

first_imgIndianapolis, In. — Indiana State Senate President Pro Tempore Republican David Long has issued a statement in support of U.S. Senate candidate Luke Messer. Here is the complete statement:  “I have known Luke Messer for many years. As a young and talented member of the Indiana House, Luke proved his conservative credentials early on by helping us create a new vision for Indiana in partnership with Gov. Mitch Daniels. As a strong and innovative leader for educational choice, Luke fought to ensure Hoosier families and children have the options they need to obtain a world-class education. As a quickly-rising star in the US Congress, Luke has proven he can work with difficult coalitions of interests to move an agenda for the American people. And Luke is a great father and husband. Throughout it all, Luke and I have forged a strong bond of friendship and mutual respect that I personally value greatly.  “Now Luke has announced he is running for the United States Senate. While the Republican Party is blessed to have a number of candidates interested in the seat, I believe Luke to be the absolute best person to effectively represent the interests of all Hoosiers in the US Senate. At a time when seemingly nothing gets done in Washington and partisanship is more important to some than country, Luke Messer is the type of strong yet thoughtful conservative who can help break through the quagmire of inaction and put the interests of our state and nation first. I am honored to endorse Luke Messer to be our next United States Senator from Indiana.”last_img read more
