Tool drummer Danny Carey apparently injured himself while lifting something at home, according to sources close to the band. Carey tore his bicep last week, requiring surgery and forcing the group to postpone its North American tour, which was scheduled to begin on March 15 in Las Vegas. Carey went under the knife last Wednesday (February 21), and doctors will examine him this week to determine just how much time he'll need to recuperate.

Tool has rescheduled live dates postponed last month. The itinerary will now begin April 30 in Reno, Nev.

Tool's rescheduled tour dates:

April 30 - Reno @ Reno Event Center

Tool bassist Justin Chancellor recently told Launch that fans who missed the 2006 dates will get a second chance to see a similar show on the upcoming trek. "Actually, we're kind of playing places that we didn't play last year, so I don't think, it won't be, like, completely different songs, you know," he said. "It won't be a completely different thing, but it will be slightly more evolved. I mean, it naturally evolves as we go through time, you know."

Tool intends to record some dates on its next North American tour for a live CD and DVD.

The stage production on the next Tool tour will be "more intense" than the band's last trip, with computer animation and props possibly being included.
