Lucky Man Concerts is producing the show, which falls in the middle of Lucky Man's Monster Mash 2015 concert (the other days being Friday, October 30 and Sunday, November 1).
That said, the Tool show is not part of Monster Mash. Update: It appears the show is indeed part of Monster Mash.
Primus, Coheed and Cambria, and other special guests to be announced will play the Saturday, October 31, concert as well.
The concert is the only Tool show announced so far in 2015.
Tickets go on sale Friday, June 26, at 10 a.m. at www.monstermashaz.com.
