Tool drummer Danny Carey, bassist Justin Chancellor and guitarist Adam Jones will take part in a series of music clinics next month. The three musicians will give fans a behind-the-scenes look at the group’s music that will include discussing their writing process and analyzing individual tracks in an open question-and-answer discussion. Ticket holders will also receive exclusive commemorative merchandise.
The event, billed as a “rare, immersive dissection and performance,” will not include frontman Maynard James Keenan, although the three instrumental members of the group will perform for the audience.
A traveling exhibit will also be on display at each event, featuring unique items from Tool’s history.
