Tool was forced to postpone Tuesday night’s (September 12) concert at the AT&T Center in San Antonio after singer Maynard James Keenan was taken ill. The band’s guitarist, Adam Jones, called in to 99.5 KISS with an apology and an explanation. “Oh, I’m really sorry,” Jones said. “It’s horrible, you know. Our singer got sick… Maynard is sick and it’s very unfortunate ’cause, you know, when I get sick or Danny [Carey] or Justin [Chamberlain] get sick, we can still go on with the show, but Maynard’s got fever, he’s coughing up stuff, he’s hoarse and he doesn’t want everyone to think he sucks by going out and trying anyway. But you know, he needs to just get over it, rest, you know, and hopefully we can continue. So you just need to hold on to your tickets and we’ll try to swing back around on this tour or on the next tour… It’ll be good for that. We’re really sorry about this, but it happens. You know, you’re traveling and overnighting to different places and climate changes and different pollens and different infected people that are probably getting him sick and, you know.”
