Launch Radio Networks reports: 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 Launch understands that doctors will examine him this week to determine just how much time he'll need to recuperate.

TOOL may run into trouble rescheduling its tour for later this spring, as many of the arenas it was booked into are on hold for either hockey or basketball playoffs at that time.

A representative for the band said TOOL is asking fans to be patient and hold onto their tickets, although refunds are available at the point of purchase.

Once Carey has recovered, the group plans to keep touring worldwide through June of 2008.

The group is still scheduled to perform at the 2007 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival, held between June 14 and June 17 in Manchester, Tennessee.
