A Perfect Circle will tour North America for the first time in six years, kicking off their 2011 tour dates with a headlining performance at Rock on the Range in Columbus, Ohio on May 22.
The band returned from their self-imposed hiatus in the fall of 2010 for a handful of intimate Western U.S. dates, which sold out within a minute of going on sale. We had the first exclusive interview with A Perfect Circle upon their return as BTS Senior Staff Writer, Adam Rauf caught up with Billy Howerdel for an in-depth look at the band’s return.
