“We’re excited to have Fuse behind us on our upcoming U.S. tour,” guitarist Billy Howerdel said. “The network’s pro-active interaction with the fans will make the live experience for us even more exciting.”

Fuse’s involvement in the tour means on-air and online interactive elements will abound, including artist-dedicated Web sites, contests and streaming interviews.

The band has more than just the U.S. dates on the books, though. Starting January 13, they’ll blaze their way around Europe for a few weeks. They’ve got a healthy arena tour of the U.K. scheduled for the beginning of February and then it’s down to the warm climes of New Zealand and Australia for another round of shows.

Three gigs in Japan wrap the overseas portion of A Perfect Circle’s tour. They head back for the States and start their arena tour on March 18 in Salt Lake City.
