Sydney traditionally sells out pretty quick, so if you’re planning on getting a ticket, plan to be online at midnight to do so. I wouldn’t be surprised if tickets sell out by the time the average Tool fan wakes up. Considering that the Sydney BDO is mid-week (on Australia Day) I wouldn’t be banking on a second show being announced.
For this years event, Sydney, Melbourne and Gold Coast Big Day Outs sold out pretty quick, and I don’t think Adelaide and Perth weren’t far behind. As I said, if you’re planning on going, don’t leave it – buy your ticket as they go on sale.
Still no news on any side shows. I think that there will be some, but don’t expect them to be announced until a week or so after festival tickets go on sale.
