We're STILL waiting for Tool's next album, but you'll be able to see the band this month -- if you want to pony up $500 and travel to Tempe, Ariz.
Former WWE announcer Justin Roberts will moderate a special Q&A and meet & greet with the group taking place October 30 at the city's Marquee Theatre -- the night before Tool's Halloween performance there as part of the Monster Mash Music Fest. The event will also include a gallery of artwork and Tool memorabilia and a chance to have a photo taken with the band, although cell phones and other recording devices are being barred. Tickets can be purchased online at Shop.ToolArmy.com.
The Halloween night show also features Primus, Coheed and Cambria, Aeges and With Our Arms to the Sun.
Tool has been working on its first album since 10,000 Days in 2006 and has released footage of the band in the studio via social media, but no release date has been announced.
