Maynard James Keenan Discusses Recruiting Blonde Redhead To Open On Tool’s Upcoming Tour

Maynard James Keenan has taken to social media to comment on his decision to recruit Blonde Redhead as the opening act on the first leg of Tool’s upcoming tour. The frontman said the following:

“The approach or criteria I usually take when it’s my turn to choose an opener, is Diversity. No point in choosing something similar to us. Most are only here for the headliner anyway. But for those with open hearts and minds, I choose something I feel is compelling in its own way. Blonde Redhead is my pick for this upcoming run. Incredible melodies, complex & subtle rhythms, and non traditional arrangements. But Nothing like Tool And Not meant to be. Obviously. If it’s not your thing, don’t worry. What you came to hear will soon follow. But if any of what you hear resonates, Blonde Redhead have a deep catalog for you to get lost in for years to come. Thank you in advance for welcoming Blonde Redhead into your ear holes. Looking forward to playing for all of you very soon.”
