Tool Postpone Eugene, OR And Salt Lake City, UT Shows

Tool have postponed their March 12 show in Eugene, OR and their March 16 show in Salt Lake City, UT due to city-wide bans on public gatherings related to the coronavirus pandemic. The band will be taking a “day-to-day approach” for the rest of their spring tour.

Tool issued the following statement about the Eugene show:

“Tonight’s TOOL concert in EUGENE, OREGON has been postponed due to the restriction on group gatherings of over 250 people that is now effective per the state of Oregon’s announcement late last night. The band was eager to play this show and are working to reschedule it. The remainder of the previously announced North American tour dates are currently unaffected.”

They also issued a separate statement about the Salt Lake City show:

“We are continuing to monitor the evolving situation with Coronavirus and are in continual conversations with local promoters and venues. The health of our fans, bandmates, crew members and all of those that work in and around the venues is what we are focused on. As of now, our March 14 date at the Ford Idaho Center Amphitheater is going on as planned but our March 16 performance at Maverik Center has been postponed. As for the recently announced North American Spring tour, we are taking a day-to-day approach so please continue to monitor our website (Toolband.com) and social media channels for updates.”

Tool Fan Who Tested Positive For Coronavirus Attended The Band’s Auckland, NZ Show

According to the New Zealand Herald, a Tool fan that attended the band’s February 28 show at Spark Arena in Auckland, NZ has tested positive for coronavirus. Though unclear, there is a possibility that he might have been infectious at the time.

The fan was standing in the general admission area in the front left-hand quadrant of the venue. The risk of getting the virus was reportedly low, but those that were in attendance should keep an eye out for symptoms. The man and his wife, who also tested positive after the couple returned from northern Italy, are currently in self-isolation.

Director-General of Health, Ashley Bloomfield commented:

“We encourage all people in the area of the concert to be aware of the symptoms and contact the Healthline if concerned. The advice is that the risk is very low for all others who attended this concert.

There was no way of tracking the people who were in that area of the concert. They are classed as causal contacts and the advice to them is to call Healthline if they have any symptoms.”
