Excited to announce that I'll be supporting Tool on their upcoming US dates in January/February 2020. This is a huge honor that I don't take lightly. I don't always get to take the full arsenal of drone machines due to their weight and pain but certainly on this run, everything is in play. I love you all and I'm sorry for future back pain and inevitable hearing loss. 🤘🏿 Dates: January 10 San Diego, CA Viejas Arena January 12 San Diego, CA Viejas Arena January 15 Fresno, CA Save Mart Center January 17 Las Vegas, NV T-Mobile Arena January 18 Glendale, AZ Gila River Arena January 21 Austin, TX Frank Erwin Center January 22 Dallas, TX American Airlines January 28 Atlanta, GA State Farm Arena January 29 Nashville, TN Bridgestone Arena January 31 Memphis, TN FedEx Forum February 1 New Orleans, LA Smoothie King Center #tool #tour #authorandpunisher #dronemachines #doommetal #industrial #ustour #relapserecords #concertedefforts #440mgmt
