A Perfect Circle wrapped up their third leg of North American tour dates last night with a stirring show in Phoenix, with a European trek beginning Dec. 2 in Glasgow.
The band’s North American tour kicked off with an intimate Grammy Museum performance to 200 lucky fans. The evening was a rarity for A Perfect Circle who just this week performed at Madison Square Garden and whose most recent hometown show was a sold-out outing at the venerable Hollywood Bowl. Howerdel spoke with Grammy.com about the Grammy Museum performance as well as the 12-song collection: https://www.grammy.com/grammys/news/perfect-circles-billy-howerdel-new-music-touring-again-more.
Steven Sebring (“Horses: Patti Smith and Her Band,” “Dream of Life”) directed a companion film to Eat The Elephant. Viewable via a custom prism, the hologram film is a first of its kind offering, and can be found in the Eat The Elephant deluxe box set.
