Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan and guitarist Billy Howerdel have been taking the alternative rock and metal worlds by storm as A Perfect Circle since 2000. The band has been active recently in South America and Australia on a string of festival concert dates in early 2013 after a massive US tour in the summer of 2011. The legendary live dynamics of Howerdel's precision playing and Keenan's world-class rock baritone has fans snapping up tickets rapidly. Concerts consist of simple sets along with an amalgam of music from all three of their albums. They also perform tasteful renditions of some surprising cover songs, as noted in their most recent greatest hits album, Three Sixty (2013).Howerdel is a former guitar tech for rock-world heavyweights Nine Inch Nails, Smashing Pumpkins and Fishbone. He and Keenan met in 1992 when Tool was opening for Fishbone. The union began as the brainchild of Howerdel, who had been working on the music for a number of years prior to playing some demos for Keenan. The singer suggested that he could hear himself performing the songs, and the circle was put into motion. Their debut album, Mer De Noms appeared at No. 4 on the Billboard 200. The band later produced the 2003 album Thirteenth Step and 2004's eMOTIVe. Keenan and Howerdel share the lineup with top-notch rock royalty James Iha, formerly of Smashing Pumpkins, who holds down rhythm guitar, while bassist Matt McJunkins was picked up from Howeredel's side project, Ashes Divide. Meanwhile, renowned Vandals and one-time Guns 'N' Roses member Josh Freese is featured on drums. A Perfect Circle appeared suddenly, cranked out tons of music and sort of just disappeared, however, years later, the group is now back with another release in a pattern that seems, well, circular.

My first time seeing APC and they were ****AMAZING*** ... 40 minutes to go until tickets for the Seattle Key Arena show go one sale for December! I cannot wait to see them again.

Perfect Circle is Perfect

Perfect Circle always puts on a great show. Not a Hollywood Bowl fan due to the vastness of the venue that creates IMO a lack of connection between the artist and audience, but sat closer than I had before and really helped. Also thought they got the sound up louder which was needed as the band is close to hard rock.

Even though it's been over 5 years since their last show, APC never loses their touch. They are just as good now as they were when they premiered. Music was on point and vocals from MJK sounded incredible. Overall, the show at the Hollywood bowl to end their tour was incredible to say the least. I look forward to the new album and another tour to support it.

It would have been great to check out the opening band but security had a line backed up all the way around the concert hall and down the street. We opted for a pub close by to avoid wasting our time in line. After a couple of pints we went back and the line was still unacceptable. I paid $150 for my girlfriend and I to have a musical experience it was tainted from the start with getting people in the door.
