Maynard James Keenan Adds NY & DC Dates To Upcoming Book Tour

maynard-james-keenan-2016-1Maynard James Keenan, front man of A Perfect Circle, Puscifer and TOOL, has added two new dates to his previously announced book tour: Nov. 11 at The New York Society for Ethical Culture and Nov. 12 at the Sixth & I Historic Synagogue in Washington, D.C.

Keenan, who is known for not merely being protective about his personal life but at times pointedly cagey and misleading about his history, will participate in a moderated discussion about the book and his decision to share such intimate details about his life. The special evening also includes Keenan reading passages from A Perfect Union of Contrary Things (Nov. 8, BackBeat Books) with a backdrop of never before seen photos and videos, as well as taking questions from the audience in what will be a rare moment of direct interaction between the elusive musician and the fans of his projects.

An Evening with Maynard James Keenan:

November 9 – Nashville, TN – City Winery   SOLD OUT
November 11 – New York, NY – The New York Society for Ethical Culture
November 12 – Washington, DC – Sixth & I Historic Synagogue
November 16 – Chicago, IL – Thalia Hall

General admission and VIP tickets for both newly announced shows are on-sale this Friday, July 22, at 10 am eastern. Additional dates will be announced soon.

About A Perfect Union of Contrary Things

A Perfect Union of Contrary Things presents the outtakes, the scenes of disappointment and triumph, and the events that led Maynard James Keenan to take one step after the next, to change direction, to explore sometimes-surprising opportunities. Included throughout are passages in Keenan’s own words, often-humorous anecdotes that illuminate the narrative.  Commentary by his family members, friends, instructors, and industry colleagues rounds out the Sarah Jensen penned memoir with a foreword from American visionary artist and longtime Keenan friend, Alex Grey. The biography arrives on Nov. 8 via Backbeat Books, an imprint of Hal Leonard Performing Arts Publishing Group.
