The anticipation of new music from A Perfect Circle should be plenty of reason for fans to hop on to the 2011 North American Tour. Update (7/11/11): A Perfect Circle has tested a new track titled “By and Down” at a tour stop in Portland, Oregon. Howerdel mentioned that “Right now the intention is not to put out a (full album) but just to release some songs along the way, and then they might be re-imagined and put together in some collection.”
With 28 cities booked in US and Canada for A Perfect Circle Tour 2011, this is only the second time since 2004 that founders Maynard Keenan and Billy Howerdel together will be performing new music in front of thousands. The excitement began when A Perfect Circle tweeted in April that they are “working on new music. Slow but Steady,” and Howerdel confirmed that the tour will be their testing grounds. The band thus far has been performing most of their set from their “eMOTIVe” album, which was produced to promote social mindfulness.
A Perfect Circle tour 2011 will kick off in June 29th in Portland, OR and continue until August 10th. In late April on Twitter, A Perfect Circle announced that the opening band for the 2011 North American Tour will be Red Bacteria Vacuum, a three member all-female Japanese punk band from Osaka.
It was announced that A Perfect Circle drummer Josh Freese will not be touring with the band due to an earlier commitment to tour with Weezer. With remorse, Freese stated that this decision was “maybe the hardest…I’ve ever had to make professionally and it hasn’t been easy on me.” Filling in will be Jeff Friedl from ASHES dIVIDE and Puscifer, which are both Howerdel and Keenan’s respective solo projects. As such, there’s no doubt that a lack of chemistry will exist on stage between A Perfect Circle and Friedl.
Tickets for the 2011 North American Tour are expected to sell out (just like they did in 2010). If you’re from the Chicago area and don’t find them visiting your area – no worries, it’s because they’ll be at Lollapalooza 2011 (find Lollapalooza tickets).
