Fourtheye Xmas Subscriber Giveaway!

It’s been a little while since I held a Fourtheye Subscriber giveaway, and in order to make up for it I have a couple of cool prizes.

Firstly is a tour shirt from the recent Tool Monster Mash show. The original plan was to have a poster to giveaway, but they sold out too quickly! Thanks to azbay for grabbing this for me!

Tool add second San Francisco show

In a move that won’t surprise many, due to popular demand Tool have added a second show to their run at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco:

Due to popular demand, a second TOOL SHOW has been ADDED for THURSDAY, JANUARY 7th at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. TICKETS will go ON-SALE TOMORROW (SATURDAY, DECEMBER 12) at 10:00 AM PST.

As usual, tickets will go on sale via Ticketmaster.

Sold out!  Expect this to happen!

An Evening with Tool in San Francisco

Seems as though Tool have one more date for us, with an Evening With Tool being announced at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. Unlike the others, this one won’t feature Primus as the support act – just 3teeth.

Details from the Toolband:

TOOL will be performing live at the BILL GRAHAM CIVIC AUDITORIUM in SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA on WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 6th. TICKETS for this “EVENING WITH TOOL” (with 3TEETH to open) go ON-SALE this FRIDAY, DECEMBER 11 at 12:00 PM PST. Please note that there will be NO VIPS for this show.

Tickets will be available via Ticketmaster.

The rest of the tour is pretty much sold out, with VIP tickets available for only a few of the shows left.

Tool Xmas ornament for sale on Toolband

Xmas is here I guess, and as seems to be increasingly the case these days, there are some merchandise items available for purchase on Toolband. These include some Xmas ornaments, a lighter and some furry hat thing. If any of this stuff excites you, then head on over and spend some money.

Personally, I’d like to purchase:

  • A live Tool DVD
  • Some kind of Opiate re-recording
  • 10,000 Days vinyl
  • For that matter a reissue of most of Tool’s other vinyl, in particular Aenima
  • Some figurines from Tool videos
  • A coffee table book featuring live photos and other Tool related artworks
  • A Danny Carey drumming instruction (or just performance) DVD
  • Blu-ray HD versions of the Tool videos
  • 5.1 remasters of Tool’s albums
  • A version of Toolarmy where Tool fans get genuine pre-sales, and not just $500 VIP tickets.

For any of those things, I would happily open my wallet. For Xmas ornaments, I shall not.

Some stuff you can buy

Update: The Houston show will go on sale on Saturday the 5th of December.

Update 2: The Primus website is showing two shows in Florida. Thanks to fortysixand2 for the tip!

Here are some more TOOL SHOW dates, cities, and venues that will go ON-SALE FRIDAY, DECEMBER 4th. Please continue to check back for times and links and to see if any more shows are ADDED to this list.
– January 14: Houston, TX @ Toyota Center
– January 20: Kansas City, MO @ Sprint Center
– January 22: St. Louis, MO @ Chaifetz Center
– January 31: New Orleans, LA @ Smoothie King Center

As noted, all of these shows go on sale this Friday, presumably via Ticketmaster. I expect they will sell out in a similar fashion to the others shows on tour.

Will there be any more dates? There’s a couple of gaps in the schedule that could lead to a show in Arizona, or somewhere else in Southwest USA, and also one prior to the New Orleans show where we could see something down in the South East – perhaps Florida? I have no leads on shows in either of these locations, however I probably wouldn’t count on their being more shows added for now.

Tool will be plaing at the Sprint Center in Kansas City on the 20th of January

Caduceus and Merkin Wine Tastings coming to Sydney and Brisbane

Our buddies over at Sip Wine are having a couple of Caduceus and Merkin Wine Tastings – a free one in Brisbane, and a Masterclass in Sydney costing $35pp.

Here are some details of the Sydney Masterclass on Wednesday the 2nd of December (Facebook Link):

We will be tasting, chatting, laughing and discussing the wines of Maynard James Keenan’s Caduceus Cellars & Merkin Vineyards. Whether you know heaps about wine or very little, come and learn and enjoy the wines with some other like minded people. Wednesday 2nd December at 7:30pm across the road from Central Station on the Surry Hills side in the Gaelic Club, this Masterclass will be held in the Loft at the top of the Stairs of the Gaelic Club. 64 Devonshire St, Surry Hills.

Taste Ten Caduceus & Merkin Wines in a Masterclass led by Matt Irwin from Sip Wine. Wednesday 2nd December 7:30pm at The Loft @The Gaelic Club, right across the road from Central Station in Sydney CBD. 64 Devonshire St, Surry Hills. Limited tickets available.
Caduceus & Merkin Vineyards Masterclass Line Up

Merkin Vineyards Chupacabra Blanca 2013
Merkin The Diddler 2013

Merkin Vineyards Shinola 2013
Merkin Vineyards Chupacabra 2013

Don’t be too put off by the price. Knowing Matt I expect the servings will be quite generous!

And the Brisbane tasting on Saturday the 5th of December (Facebook Link):

Come down anytime from 1pm – 5pm & taste through 6 different Caduceus & Merkin wines including Caduceus SANCHA 2012, Caduceus ONESTE 2012, Caduceus NAGA 2012, Merkin The Diddler 2013 & Merkin Tarzan 2013 whilst Puscifer & TOOL tunes are pumping. The tasting is free and you can stay around and have a glass of wine or beer at Slingshot after you have tasted the wines.

If things go well, there are plans to hold tastings in other capital cities in 2016, so get behind them!

Alternative Nation and Junior reckon the tour is set

An article on Alternative Nation, as well as a comment Junior made on Fourtheye suggest that the 2016 Tool tour is pretty much set and that there won’t be many, if any, more dates to be added. This is despite rumours (and that’s all they were) that Failure were to join Tool on a second half of the run across the USA. Looks like those of you in the northern half will be missing out once more!

From Alternative Nation:

In a direct quote from our source, “This is it, these tour dates are what we have and as of this moment there isn’t any new plans to release more tour dates.”

From Junior:

I would lean more towards the first announcement containing “half the total shows” than there being a “second half”.
ie: some of the empty dates will fill in, rather than there being a longer tour. I think it will end at January’s end.

Also, the announced lineup (with Primus and 3teeth) is likely the only lineup you will see on this round.

The good news is that Alternative Nation have listed that New Orleans show, show there seems to be some weight behind that one being added to the tour (albeit on a different date to what Ticketmaster leaked).

2016 Tool Tour Dates

January 9 San Diego—Viejas Arena
January 10 San Diego, CA—Viejas Arena
January 13 San Antonio, TX—AT&T Center
January 16 Tulsa, OK—BOK Center
January 17 Grand Prairie, TX—Verizon Theatre
January 19 Southaven, MS—Landers Center
January 23 Nashville, TN—Bridgestone Arena
January 25 Atlanta, GA—Infinite Energy Center
January 26 Charlotte, NC—Bojangles Coliseum
January 30 New Orleans, LA—Smoothie King Center

Negative Tool Fans, the pattern is full!

Ticketmaster leak Tool New Orleans show?

Ticketmaster apparently posted a new Tool date, this time for January 31 in New Orleans, LA at the Smoothie King Center. The page has since been removed, so we don’t know for sure if this show will actually happen though I’d say there’s a good chance it will. Don’t go booking holidays just yet though! There is also some speculation on Reddit that there might be a second Charlotte show on the 27th of January, so keep your eyes peeled.

Enjoy the smoothest smoothie of your life while taking in the prog stylings of Tool!
