A Perfect Circle Play ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ — Video
Last night, A Perfect Circle took to the grand — yet somehow always windy — outdoor stage of ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ for their first performance since they began a hiatus in 2004.
Playing ‘Weak and Powerless’ off of the sophomore album ‘Thirteenth Step,’ a pigtailed Maynard James Keenan and company seemed flawless, as if no one had spent the last few years running around with their other projects; Keenan with Tool and Puscifer, Billy Howerdel as Ashes Divide and James Iha denying he’ll ever be a part of Smashing Pumpkins again.

As the credits rolled, APC went into their dark and hazy rendition of John Lennon‘s ‘Imagine.’ Additionally, the band rehearsed ‘Passive’ and ‘Judith’ to the crowds delight before taping began. Shaky cell phone video footage of those songs are popping up all over the Internet.
This performance is the precursor to the band’s upcoming West Coast tour that begins Nov. 4 in Tempe, Ariz. The 14 A Perfect Circle tour dates will see the supergroup performing each of their three albums in their entirety on specific nights.
