Back luck for Perth and Christchurch Tool fans. No word yet if there will be a Toolarmy pre-sale.

There’s also a new article on New Zealand site 3News where Danny and Maynard talk about their love of touring down under:

“We’re looking forward to coming down. It’s one of my favourite places to visit, so I am very much looking forward to the show,” Maynard James Keenan told me in a recent interview for Rip It Up.
“Especially because it’s going to be our own, it will be a lot more fun to be able to present a contained show, because it’s been so long.”

After the last two festival tours, I couldn’t agree more!
