A PERFECT CIRCLE On 'Last Call With Carson Daly': Interview, Performance Footage

Professionally filmed video footage of A PERFECT CIRCLE's November 9, 2010 concert at the Avalon in Los Angeles, California aired on this past Friday's (November 12) edition of episode of NBC-TV's "Last Call With Carson Daly". In addition, A PERFECT CIRCLE/TOOL/PUSCIFER frontman Maynard James Keenan was interviewed on the show. You can now watch both the performance and the interview below.

A PERFECT CIRCLE last week kicked off a tour of five cities, with each city save one getting a three-night stand. The band is playing each of its three studio albums — "Mer De Noms", "Thirteenth Step" and "eMOTIVe" — on a different night.

In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Keenan said about the decision to play small venues, "There's no way we're going to sell out arenas. We haven't been around for six years . . . These shows are going to be very small intimate theater gigs, basically just the five of us trying to connect with each other."

The cities the band will hit on this run are Los Angeles, San Francisco, Seattle, Phoenix and Las Vegas. The group will play just two nights in Vegas, dropping the "eMOTIVe" performance.

The 2010 lineup of A PERFECT CIRCLE includes Keenan, Howerdel, drummer Josh Freese, former SMASHING PUMPKINS guitarist James Iha and bassist Matt McJunkins.

Keenan said that former members Paz Lenchantin, Jeordie White and Troy Van Leeuwen have been invited to stop by the shows and play on a couple of songs.

A PERFECT CIRCLE currently does not have a record deal.
