A Perfect Circle's Hiatus Over: Marquee Theatre Shows Scheduled

Arizona winemaker/Tool singer Maynard James Keenan is getting his band A Perfect Circle back together.

The group, which also includes Billy Howerdel of Ashes Divide, will embark on a five-city tour this fall including a three-night stop at Tempe's Marquee Theatre.

Dates for the tour, which also includes shows in Los Angeles (Avalon), Seattle (Showbox at The Market) and San Francisco (The Fillmore). Each night of those stands will feature one of A Perfect Circle's three albums -- Mer de Noms, Thirteenth Step and eMOTIVe -- in its entirety. A stop at Las Vegas' The Pearl will be a two-night outing featuring Mer de Noms and Thirteenth Step.

The band will also perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live on Oct. 27.

A Perfect Circle has sold four million records but went on hiatus in 2005 with Keenan re-focusing on Tool, his Puscifer side project and his vineyards.
