Turning 50 next spring, Tool
vocalist Maynard James Keenan
announced a special birthday bash to mark the occasion.
Taking place at LA's Greek Theatre on May 10, the party will see Maynard performing with two of his side-projects - Puscifer
and A Perfect Circle
. As Spin reports, recently reunited art-rockers Failure
are also included on the bill as a special b-day request from Keenan himself.
"Making it to the half century mark can be equal parts daunting and relieving. I figured I would remove the sting of officially being referred to as 'Gramps' by throwing a party and outlasting all of my rude friends,"
Keenan said. "This was the perfect opportunity to tick off one of my bucket list items in the form of a Failure reunion. What better birthday present could one ever hope for?"
Tickets are scheduled to go on sale starting December 6, VIP packages will be available a day earlier. More info available here
These days, Maynard is mostly preoccupied with the new Tool
album. However, his other bands aren't exactly falling behind either - Puscifer unleashed their new EP "Donkey Punch the Night
" back in February, while A Perfect Circle released "Three Sixty
" hits compilation on November 19.
So Maynard will be 50 soon - make sure to share a few birthday wishes in advance in the comment section.
