7:30 p.m. Saturday, June 26. Family Arena, 2002 Arena Parkway, St. Charles.

Expecting Tool to function on any sort of reasonable timetable is like spitting in the wind these days. The massively influential prog-metal goliath puts out albums whenever it feels like it (the most recent being 2006's 10,000 Days, although rumors of a new album in the works have been spreading recently), and the group's touring habits are just as scattershot: This summer, the quartet is invading the South, Midwest, West Coast and bits of western Canada with (presumably) nothing new to hawk. But don't let the possibility of no new material stop you from attending; Tool's surprisingly arena-friendly concerts stretch past two hours, with intense laser shows and usually topnotch opening acts. This time around, freak-folk act Wovenhand is doing the bulk of the curtain-jerking duty.
