A loyal Fourtheye reader who would prefer to stay anonymous, today sent me a picture of his prized Adam Jones sculpture. Looks like it was one of the props used in the Prison Sex video. Enjoy it’s high resolution goodness by clicking on it!!
Both the Tool Hotline and a couple of reviews on Toolnavy are saying that Maynard announced at the last Las Vegas show that it would be the last one for the 10,000 Days tour. Looks like we may not get another Tool tour down under after all, unless he was just talking about the US.
On a brighter note, here’s another one of those posters courtesy of CP:
CorpsegrindeR sent in a picture of the signed Tool poster he picked up in San Francisco the other night:
Let me know when you start getting sick of seeing these…
Brian sent me an email last night with a couple of links to some posters made available at the recent Tool show in LA. According to him, poster weren’t selling for $1000, but a mere $500. The $500 ones were snapped up pretty quick, and there were only 5 of them. Signed copies of the other poster was $80 and there were heaps of those. The first one has some of Adam’s art while the send one is plain:
The Vicarious DVD is available to order on Toolarmy for US$12.98 plus shipping. I’ve already ordered mine from JB Hi-Fi, where it costs that much but in Australian dollars. I’m sure there’s similar bargains to be found around the world. Of course if you do order it from Toolarmy (and I would have if they hadn’t left it so late) then you may get a nice warm feeling knowing that a slightly higher percentage of the money is going to Tool, or to at least the guys that run TA.
Here’s the artwork displayed in the Bazaar:
Indridcold on Toolarmy posted this today. Not sure how legit it is, but is fucking hope it’s true…

– AUSTRALIAN TOUR EARLY 2008 (TBC)
Sounds pretty good to me. The contents of the DVD sound pretty much like I expected.
Blair posted a picture of the customised Tool posters on sale on the current US Tour. I wasn’t able to view the images with Firefox though, I could only see them in IE, so I’ve posted the image below for those who aren’t able to see it. It looks pretty cool, and Adam has done some pretty cool stuff to the original poster. Allegedly these posters cost US$400 each, with the plain signed ones being US$75. Better hit the bank up for another loan…
