[ # ] Tool proves they are not tools
June 5th, 2020 under Coronavirus

We have all been impacted financially by the coronavirus pandemic, and need whatever money we can get back. However, the concert promoters are holding on to our dinero until musicians cancel their tours. If the bands reschedule, then you don’t get your hard-earned cash back. Tool wants you to know they heard your stories, and yesterday they made a huge announcement.

“As so many music lovers have come to realize over the last several weeks, there is no playbook that artists, promoters and venues can pull from in these unprecedented times.

When we played what would be our final show of 2020, March 11 at Portland’s Moda Center, we believed we would be back on the road sometime this Fall. As we worked towards that goal we’ve come to realize that there is absolutely no certainty in re-scheduling dates for this Fall or 2021. State and local ordinances vary widely and no one can predict when high capacity events will safely return.

At the same time that we were working to reschedule this tour, we read your messages. Messages of job losses, illness, emotional and financial pain. We could continue to postpone or reschedule dates for some time into 2021 but ethically, we do not think this is the right course of action. In our opinion, tying up our fans’ money for months, if not a full year, is unfair. With that in mind, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel the tour so we can help support the people who have supported us for years.

Please know, we want nothing more than to return to the road, to play these songs for you and to celebrate our shared recovery. When the time is right, we will do just that.

In the coming days you will receive an email from the ticketing service you purchased tickets through notifying you of the event cancellation and when to expect your refund.” – TOOL

Hats off to them. Bands need to realize without their fans they are nothing, so they should help out their fans because they need them now as much as the rockers need them normally.
