And yours truly couldn't be happier!!!  Check out the dates and start planning your road trips.

A couple days ago rumors floated around that Tool had secretly posted two concert dates on ticketmaster, only to have those dates taken down before anyone had a chance to see if it was true or not.

Now, the dates AND THEN SOME are back online with confirmations of more to come in hand! Here are the dates so far. Nothing announced for Albany yet, but there are dates in NJ and CT which are close enough to merit a weekend getaway to see Maynard in his manly glory.

The word right now is that tickets for these shows will go on sale this Friday, December 16th so prepare your credit cards for a purchase of pure awesome! *coughcoughperfectchristmaspresentcoughcough*
