Tool Further Explain Their Upcoming $500 Music Clinic Appearances


Tool‘s camp have attempted to clear up some confusion regarding the band’s forthcoming series of clinic appearances. For $500 USD you will be able to see 3/4th of the band (guitarist Adam Jones, drummer Danny Carey and bassist Justin Chancellor) perform songs, discuss the writing process for their material, take questions via an open Q&A and also host a meet and greet. Exclusive merchandise and a traveling exhibit of Tool memorabilia will also be on hand at each stop.

A post shared on the band’s official Facebook today (April 16th) reads:

“First of all, KUDOS to those Tool enthusiasts who realize the unique opportunity of the upcoming music clinics and have secured their spot for the experience. As you might imagine, there has been a great response to these intimate forums and the limited number of tickets available to ToolArmy members went really fast.

As of my writing this, there are still a small number of tickets for sale to the general public and these can be purchased via the links below. Again, I urge you to act fast so as not to miss out – the clinics also include a damn near personal performance of songs followed by the dissections of the tunes by its composers!

From email that I’ve received, it appears that some of you aren’t sure what exactly these clinics entail, and have been comparing them with the Meet and Greets hosted by Adam Jones in the past. As special as those events were, rest assured that the clinics are designed to be on an entirely different level.

As advertised, “A rare immersive dissection and performance with DANNY CAREY, JUSTIN CHANCELLOR & ADAM JONES,” here’s your chance to gain insight as to how the Tool machine works. Just about everything’s on the table: methods and processes behind the writing and arranging of their critically acclaimed albums, individual vision that goes into the overall mix of things, artistic and philosophical concepts behind their distinctive stage projections, videos, etc., as well as their thoughts on the current recording process.

But, you’ve got the green light to change things up – questions need not be of a technical nature; ask about their personal musical preferences and other subjects of interest. Believe me, they are varied!

So, while you are there – seize the moment. Connect. Interact. Whether you’re an aspiring or seasoned musician… or just someone who appreciates the band members and wants to know what makes them tick.

Ask that one question that you never thought you’ve have the chance to. Intermingle like you’re backstage. Chat with Tool about anything now that you will be among the very few people that ever have the opportunity to do so

This is also your chance to view up-close rare Tool memorabilia and receive exclusive commemorative merch that only you are privy to.”
