Tool has canceled their entire 2020 North American Tour that was previously postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The tour in support of Fear Inoculum was originally scheduled to start on April 16 and run through May 5.

A statement by the band said, "When we played what would be our final show of 2020, March 11 at Portland's Moda Center, we believed we would be back on the road sometime this Fall. As we worked towards that goal we've come to realize that there is absolutely no certainty in re-scheduling dates for this Fall or 2021. State and local ordinances vary widely and no one can predict when high capacity events will safely return."

Tool made it clear that although they could continue to postpone or reschedule dates for some time in 2021, "ethically, we do not think this is the right course of action" because "tying up our fans' money for months, if not a full year, is unfair."

"With that in mind, we have made the very difficult decision to cancel the tour so we can help support the people who have supported us for years," the statement added.

The rock band promised fans that they would return to the road "When the time is right."

Ticket holders will get an email in the coming days from the ticketing service provider.
