Tool Tour Posters

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…

Adam’s Tool Posters

Limited Edition Posters

According to Blair on Toolband/Army, there are some new posters available at the upcoming US Tool shows, some of which are signed by band members.  These are sure to sell out quickly, so make sure you buy them before the show starts.  Anyone who managed to get one, feel free to send me a pic to post on Fourtheye.

Final Tour Dates

Blair has posted two more dates on Toolband/Army, both at The Pearl in Las Vegas.  According to the post these are the final two tour dates, and unless there are any last minute changes, thats it!

The remaining dates are:

Thursday, DECEMBER 13 at THE PEARL – LAS VEGAS, NEVADA

Friday, DECEMBER 14 at THE PEARL – LAS VEGAS, NEVADA

I hope those that were expecting Tool in their area got what they hoped.  Hopefully for those that missed out (including us Aussies!) Tool will be touring again early next year.

US Open Acts?

I’m asked pretty frequently if I know who the opening act for the coming US tour is.  The straight answer is that I don’t know, as far as I’m aware there hasn’t been official confirmation of any support act(s) as yet.

However, in the last couple of days there have been a few rumours lying around.  The first was that Serj Tankian from System of a Down would play a few shows with them.  For those who don’t remember, Serj joined Tool on stage in January at the Big Day Out show in Auckland.  He’s also just released his solo album Elect the Dead.  Based on his current activity, I’d say this rumour has some strength to it.

The other rumour flying around at the moment is that experimental rock band Trans Am will be supporting, and according  to the Casper Events Center website they’re booked in to support Tool for at least the show on the 23rd of November.  I haven’t heard much from these guys, but after checking out their Myspace site, it would appear they’re not to far removed from the band Battles.

SF confirmed, Missoula Show also

Toolband/Army has confirmed the existance of the Tool San Francisco show, as well as adding a date in Missoula, MT.

12/3 – Missoula, MT @ Adam’s Fieldhouse (on-sale 10/27)

Anyone hear the Maynard interview on Triple J this morning?

Tool in San Fransisco

Tool rake in $17.3 Million

According to the Summer Tour Report on USA Today Tool’s US tour this year was the 10th highest grossing tour.  According to the report Tool played 37 shows, played to 342,000 people and had a Seats Filled rating of 88%.

Congrats to the guys and I hope they’re enjoying their Cuban cigars lit by $100 notes.
