May 22 – Corpus Christi @ American Bank Center
May 24 – Baton Rouge @ River Center

TOOL bassist Justin Chancellor recently told Launch that fans who missed the 2006 dates will get a second chance to see a similar show on the upcoming trek. "Actually, we're kind of playing places that we didn't play last year, so I don't think, it won't be, like, completely different songs, you know," he said. "It won't be a completely different thing, but it will be slightly more evolved. I mean, it naturally evolves as we go through time, you know."

TOOL intends to record some dates on its next North American tour for a live CD and DVD.

The stage production on the next TOOL tour will be "more intense" than the band's last trip, with computer animation and props possibly being included.

The band is supporting its fourth album, "10,000 Days", which has sold 1.4 million copies since arriving last May. The CD's next single is "Jambi". Continue reading TOOL: Rescheduled U.S. Tour Dates Announced
