It was announced a couple months ago that Maynard James Keenan would embark on a book tour to promote his memoir A Perfect Union of Contrary Things that will be published Nov. 8. Additional dates have been booked, and moderators for each event have also been revealed.

Each event will include Keenan reading passages from the book, taking questions from fans and participating in a moderated discussion about the book. To pre-order the book, click here.

There are a variety of moderators throughout the book tour, ranging from Soundgarden's Kim Thayil in Seattle to A Perfect Circle's Billy Howerdel in Los Angeles to Flaming Lips' Steven Drozd in Dallas.

Tickets are on sale now except for Wappinger Falls, which go on sale Oct. 14. However, some dates are already sold out including Nashville, New York, Washington, D.C. (7:30PM reading), Chicago (7PM reading), Portland (7:30PM reading) and Phoenix. For the complete schedule, including moderators, see below.

In addition to his memoir, Keenan is also interested in a potential Tool book. In a recent interview he said,  “Oh, yeah, that would absolutely be in the cards, I think. It’s just a matter of all four of us agreeing how that’s gonna go forward. That’s always the trick, isn’t it?”
