A Perfect Circle Announces First Tour in Years
A Perfect Circle is one of the biggest fan favorites when it comes to hard rock. They have a heavy and edgy sound, but one that is intelligent and challenging to many social issues that you and I likely have very strong feelings on. Tickets to A Perfect Circle’s upcoming tour are going to be in high demand for a few reasons. This band hasn’t toured in more than five years, and with a new album coming out for the first time in more than ten years, APC is once again going to be thrust into the mainstream.
Comprised of Maynard James Keenan and Billy Howerdel from Tool, along with former members of other bands, such as James Iha from Smashing Pumpkins, A Perfect Circle is not your typical rock “supergroup.” Yes, they have that long line of rock pedigree going for them, but this is not a band that puts out albums just to make fans happy. Those in the band take this side project very seriously. They haven’t put out an album since 2004 when eMOTIVE was released, and they haven’t toured since 2011. And that last album? It was almost entirely comprised of cover songs in protest to the wars going on in Iraq and Afghanistan at the time.
Still, A Perfect Circle has continued to gain a large following. Songs like “Judith,” “Weak and Powerless,” “The Noose,” and their newest single, “Feathers” have all been cult classics and have received a lot of airtime on alternative radio stations. The band’s continued success, despite being out of the public eye for so long, is a testimony to the talent and passion that the band members have for the music that they put out.
Tickets to A Perfect Circle promise to be hard to find items. This is a highly sought after act, and the rarity with which they tour will only make good tickets harder to find. If you’re interested in seeing APC live, the sooner you purchase your tickets, the better off you will be. Remember, if you have trouble getting them through the original vendor, look on sites like SeatGeek to give yourself a better chance of finding the best seats.
