Tool passes $150 million in career tour gross

ABC/Randy HolmesDespite the decade-plus wait for a new album, Tool continues to make bank on the road.

According to Billboard's Hot Tours chart, the enigmatic metallers pulled in more than $3 million in grosses from recent shows in Louisville, Kentucky, and St. Louis and Kansas City, Missouri. That total puts Tool over the $150 million mark for their career concert grosses.

Meanwhile, the long-fabled new Tool album, the much-anticipated follow-up to 2006's 10,000 Days, finally has a release date: August 30. While on tour, Maynard James Keenan and company have been playing two new songs: "Descending" and "Invincible."

Tool is currently touring Europe. They'll be back in the U.S. to play Sacramento's Aftershock Festival in October.
