Fantômas are set to play for the first time in 9 years, in support of Tool. They’ll be joined by a number of other high-profile bands.
Today Tool announced that their concert on the 24th June, 2017 will be supported by an all-star lineup. Joining Tool on the concert billing is a DJ set by Crystal Method, The Melvins, Fantômas, Clutch and Primus.
The concert will be Glen Helen Amphitheatre, San Bernadino, California.
This will be the fist performance in 9 years for Fantômas, and their last album, Suspended Animation, was released back in 2005.
Unfortunately, Dave Lombardo will be busy with Suicidal Tendencies so he will be replaced on drums by Dale Crover. Crover is already familiar with the Fantômas body of works, having played with them during the Geek Show tour.
Here’s how the concert is being billed on the Tool website.
Clutch and Fantômas–in a very rare live performance–will join iconic band TOOL along with PRIMUS, MELVINS, and DJ sets by THE CRYSTAL METHOD at Glen Helen Amphitheater in Southern California on Saturday, June 24, 2017.
Clutch–known for pushing the boundaries that define heavy rock music–is one of the world’s most respected and influential hard rock bands. Clutch is touring in support of their 11th studio album Psychic Warfare, while laying the groundwork for their next studio album.
The brainchild of Mike Patton, Fantômas is an anti-hero from a series of pre-WWI French crime novels, sometimes dubbed the “lord of terror.” Rounding out the lineup are Buzz Osborne on guitar (Melvins), Trevor Dunn on bass (Mr. Bungle, Trevor Dunn’s Trio-Convulsant) and Dale Crover (Melvins) on drums. This will mark the band’s first U.S. show since 2008.
This is a unique opportunity to experience Tool’s unparalleled sonic and visual performance, along with live sets by some of the most highly acclaimed artists beneath the picturesque San Bernardino Mountains in Devore, CA, just outside Los Angeles.
Tickets for the show–which is produced by Danny Wimmer Presents and Live Nation Los Angeles-are on sale now at www.Ticketmaster.com.
Glen Helen Amphitheater is a short drive from Los Angeles County, Orange County, San Francisco, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Tucson, San Diego, the San Joaquin Valley, and many more cities in the Southwestern U.S.
