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.

Tickets for the New York and Toronto dates are available now. Additional dates will be announced soon.
