A Perfect Circle Announce More U.S. Tour Dates In Support Of New Album
A Perfect Circle are back. Last week, the band released their first new album in 14 years, Eat The Elephant, and now they've announced more U.S. tour dates this fall.
The run of shows will begin Oct. 20 in Salt Lake City and hit cities across the U.S., including Denver, Austin, Atlanta, New York, and Las Vegas, before wrapping up in Phoenix on Nov. 20. This fall trek comes after a short summer tour kicking off May 12 in Somerset, Wis. and concluding May 26 in Dallas. The band also has European dates booked in June and December.
Eat The Elephant was released April 20, marking the group's first album since 2004's Emotive. A Perfect Circle singer Maynard James Keenan explained the hiatus to Rolling Stone, saying, "Part of it was me having to step away for a while. Part of it was my winery and trying to get Tool nudged forward, and Puscifer. All those things were going on simultaneously and I just lost track of time, honestly… Anything's possible now, and we're able to blow the dust off that and go, 'Oh, yeah, we can do this.' And [guitarist] Billy [Howerdel] always has material up his sleeve."
Tickets for the new set of dates go on sale Apr. 27 via the band's website.
