Maynard James Keenan Gives A Possible Date To Get Back On Stage
In an interview with Metal Hammer, Puscifer and Tool icon Maynard James Keenan talked about the latest live stream shows with Puscifer and shared his opinions on the possible closest date for them to perform live again.
As you may remember, Keenan’s supergroup Puscifer released their fourth studio album, ‘Existential Reckoning,’ on October 30, 2020. As a part of the album’s release, the band performed a record-breaking live streaming concert, ‘Existential Reckoning: Live At Arcosanti,’ which took place in the Arizona desert. It received a generally positive reaction from their fans, who have been waiting for a new release since the ‘Money Shot‘ album, which was released back in 2015.
Last week, Maynard James Keenan announced another upcoming streaming event of Puscifer and revealed that ‘Billy D And The Hall Of Feathered Serpents featuring Money $hot By Puscifer’ will be the prequel to their previous live streaming show which will be available on April 17, 2021.
Recently, Keenan joined an interview with Metal Hammer and talked about the band’s decision to work on several live streaming events in the midst of the pandemic. During the conversation, Maynard revealed that he actually thinks it is possible to get back on stage in 2022 by letting it all fix itself and figuring out what the next step is. The iconic frontman stated that considering the fact that a lot of people are getting the COVID-19 vaccines, it might be safe to think that live shows will be back around 2022.
Additionally, Maynard clarified whether Puscifer will continue doing live stream shows after live concerts will be safe to do. Apparently, Keenan thinks that the live streaming event has its own advantages, he would love to continue doing both ‘touring live and these extended pieces.’
Here is what Maynard James Keenan stated about the possible tour dates for Puscifer:
“Well, I think the smartest thing would be just to look to 2022, let it all settle down, let it all fix itself, or figure out what the next step is. I think a lot of people are getting vaccines, so I think that’ll end up being of benefit, but I think the safe bet is 2022.”
Keenan also explained if they will continue live stream shows even after things got back to normal by saying:
“Yeah, because they’re still as daunting at first as you do whole filming setup. Now that we’ve done two, there are definitely things we want to improve on and fix and adjust, but it’s no longer this unknown thing. So yeah, absolutely. I would love to do both – touring live and doing these extended pieces.”
