Tool at London’s O2 Arena: timings, tickets and everything you need to know

Londoners, it’s time for night of supremely technical, mightily theatrical, genre-obliterating music. Legendary US progressive metal band Tool are in town this week, with Danny Carey, Justin Chancellor, Adam Jones and Maynard James Keenan headlining a huge show at London’s O2 Arena.

The band’s current tour – named ‘Tool in Concert’ – is currently on its second leg, following a run in 2019-2022. Tool last played London just over two years ago, when they also played the O2 Arena in Greenwich. They’re currently scheduled to only play three UK gigs this year.
