Herman Li on Tool

Last week Dragonforce’s Herman Li playing with Tool during Lateralus during the August 22nd show at the Brixton Academy.  According to Blabbermouth, he had the following to say about Tool:

TOOL‘s a unique band. It was fun to enter their world and improvise something to their style of music in front of their big audience.

I wonder who else Tool will get to join them on stage before the tour is out…..

Tool change Croatian show?

fortysixand2 posted on Toolarmy today that the show on the 4th of September has been changed from Salata to Dom Sportova. Here’s a link in a language I can’t understand which may or may not explain the situation. If anyone can translate it then let me know!

Update: Ivana just emailed me and tells me that the move to Dom Sportova is simply because it of demand for the tickets, and Dom Sportova is a bigger venue.  Enjoy the show!

Back In Black!

Word is Maynard has recovered sufficiently for Tool to play the Gampal Festival in Switzerland. Thanks to the Tool Hotline!

Tool Cancel Austrian show!

According to a post on Toolband/Army, Tool have been forced to cancel the upcoming show at the Frequency Festival in Austria.  It looks like Maynard has contracted a throat infection and isn’t able to perfrom.  No word on if any other dates will be cancelled.

Let’s all hope for a speedy recovery for Maynard, and hopefully a minimal disruption for the remainder of the tour!

Russian Circles to support Tool in UK

Thanks to the Tool Hotline who tell me that Chicago band Russian Circles will be supporting Tool on the three UK dates on the upcoming tour.  Sounds like they got the job because Isis, Pelican and These Arms Are Snakes weren’t available, that and Justin Chancellor seemed to like their music.  Check out how they got the gig in this Drowned In Sound interview, then go and have a listen on their Myspace site.

Finally, Tobias, a Fourtheye regular contacted me saying he has 3 tickets for the Nine Inch Nails show in Sydney this Wednesday. He’s looking to sell them at face value ($85 each) so if anyone is interested contact me and I’ll put you in touch with him.
