Tool postpone Adelaide show

Update: The Adelaide Entertainment Centre are reporting on Facebook that they’ve been given the all clear for the show, so looks like it’s all good for tonight!

Update 2: Looks like Maynard has confirmed also:

Last nite only 1st gear outta 5. 2day we’re runnin about 4th. Fuck it. Lets do this. If ya can’t find em, grind em

Well, quite a surreal night tonight. One minute I’m sitting in the pub enjoying some of Maynard’s finest work at the Sip & Listen wine tasting event, the next everyone in the room gets an SMS at the same time saying the Tool show had been postponed until tomorrow. The mood in the room sobered up pretty quickly! Official word from Frontier is:

URGENT: ADELAIDE TOOL CONCERT POSTPONED FROM TONIGHT TO TOMORROW NIGHT WED 1 MAY

The Frontier Touring Company regret to advise that we have just been notified that Tool’s Adelaide’s performance scheduled for this evening has been postponed to tomorrow, Wednesday 1 May.

Maynard James Keenan has been advised by doctors against performing this evening.

Tonight’s concert will be rescheduled to tomorrow night – Wednesday 1 May. All tickets remain valid and as allocated and do not need to be exchanged.

If a patron is unable to attend tomorrow night, they are advised to seek a refund immediately from their original point of purchase. Please seek a refund by Monday 6 May.

Meanwhile Maynard has the following to say in Twitter:

Effing throat won’t go. Adelaide show is postponed until Mañana, May 1st. Sorry

I feel bad for the several Tool fans I spoke to who had flights back home to Perth and other locations in the morning. Get well soon Maynard!

    i checked my instagram a while ago and saw this. Feel bad for him now that I went on a massive rant about the show.. oh well, hope he gets better.

    A friend of mine on Instagram told me that Maynard was puking at the show he went to last week. That sucks! This friend of mind also purchased the VIP package and has a picture of he and Adam posted. He said the soundcheck was awesome and the Q&A had nothing revealing involved.

    Shit happens and it sucks for all the people that have to get refunds and will more than likely to be reimbursed for their plane tickets etc… Sounds like Maynard really is sick though…

    On another note which is just as shitty as this note… I found out NIN, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Yeah Yeah Yeahs are headlining a festival in Golden Gate Park which is only 2 hours away from me… went to buy a 1 day pass for the wife and I and found out you can only buy a 3 day pass for $350…. per person…. pshhhh…. shitty.

      @Zwerewolf I’m going to Outside Lands, it’s walking distance from my apartment. My 3 day pass for was $284 total, and it wasn’t a discounted ticket. But single day tickets always go on sale in July when it is announced who is playing on what day. So far tickets have never sold out before single day tix went on sale.

      Anywho hope Maynard gets better and kicks ass finishing the tour!

    Actually… the festival note isn’t quite as shitty… I’m re-thinking that. It sucks what’s going on with TOOL. All I can hope is that Maynard gets better and has time to rest so he can finish the tour.

    Are you saying Tool will pay for plane ticket refund? Psssh

    -No not saying that at all… what I meant to say was more than likely will NOT be refunded for their air fare…. that sucks… They’ll get a refund on their ticket though for sure.

    That would be awesome if they played an extra goody goody song… Parabol/Parabola, Eulogy, H., Hooker With a Penis was awesome in RENO and oh the endless list of awesome songs they could play as special treats… Maybe “You Lied” by Peach?
    Then again, maybe Maynard will just tell everyone to go fuck themselves and they’ll blow their setlist out of the water but add nothing special… (doubtful)

    Hellboy!
    Is Blair staying out of your jurisdiction or something? He hasn’t posted shit about this at all… Mad props to you? You do a much better job at informing that he does anyways… :-)
