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:


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!
