A Perfect Circle @ Marquee Theatre

A Perfect Circle doesn't have a new record to support, but that hasn't stopped the supergroup (featuring Tool's Maynard James Keenan and guitarist Billy Howerdel) from selling out all 15 of its dates in a five-city, West Coast tour. Sure, the venues are on the small side, but it's still impressive. A Perfect Circle's slate of three-night stints kicks off in our fair city and will feature the band playing one album in its entirety each night. That includes the 2004 release Emotive, which covers anti-war songs by the likes of Nick Lowe and Joni Mitchell. Deluxe ticket packages include a wine-tasting — Keenan owns a winery near Cornville — and meet-and-greet with the band. Nothing says hard rock quite like cocktail hour.
