Maynard James Keenan has had a busy few months. The progressive-metal singer released an album and kicked off a tour with his experimental electro-rock side project, Puscifer, while handling rumors of an impending album and tour with Tool, the Grammy Award winning alternative-rock metal band he formed in 1990.
Puscifer is known for its odd and intricate live shows. For instance, playing in front of a campfire with a full-sized Airstream trailer as backdrop. Its current tour includes a mid-stage wresting ring and lucha-libre matches, plus a performance from the Luchador wrestling troupe, Luchafer.
“As usual, we prefer to show rather than tell. Odds are if you’ve been a fan of the diverse nature of our performances in the past, you’ll want to go ahead and place those bets,” Keenan said in a release announcing the six-week North American tour, which stop Saturday, Dec. 5, at the Warnors Theatre.
Come January, Keenan will focus his attention on Tool.
