The official and verified Instagram account of Tool broke its silence today and released the final decision of the band, about the upcoming tour. According to the official announcement, the band decided to postpone their Fear Inoculum tour to this fall or 2021.

As the official account states, Tool is still taking things about coronavirus serious and their priority is fans’ health. Tool also stated that the ticketing service will begin to send mails for those who purchased tickets for the tour.

Here is the official 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.”

Here is the rest of the announcement:

“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.”
