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
