Tool announce Music Clinic tour

Without a full tour to support them, it seems Tool are taking their VIP show on the road.  Tickets go on sale to the public on Friday the 13th, with a Toolarmy pre-sale kicking off on the 11th.  Rumour is that tickets are $500, which I expect will raise a few eyebrows.

Here are the details:

TOOL MUSIC CLINIC: A RARE IMMERSIVE DISSECTION AND PERFORMANCE WITH DANNY CAREY, JUSTIN CHANCELLOR AND ADAM JONES

A SERIES OF INTIMATE DISCUSSIONS TAKE FANS BEHIND-THE-SCENES INTO THE INNER WORKINGS OF ONE OF ROCK MUSIC’S MOST MYSTERIOUS BANDS

April 9, 2018, LOS ANGELES – Tool, one of rock music’s most mysterious and speculated about bands, give fans a rare glimpse behind-the-scenes via a series of intimate music clinics.

The discussions include drummer Danny Carey, bass player Justin Chancellor and guitar player Adam Jones walking attendees through a handful of the band’s songs, from the process of writing them to playing them live. Audience members are encouraged to ask questions via an open discussion, as well as mingle with the band following the session.

Ticket holders will receive commemorative merchandise, exclusive to the series of events and limited to the number of people in attendance. An accompanying, traveling exhibit will be on display at each event, featuring unique items from Tool’s history.

May 15  Indianapolis, IN  Egyptian Room at Old National

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the limited number of tickets that will be available for the pre-sale, TOOL ARMY MEMBERS who are interested in attending the clinic are urged to act quickly  (On WEDNESDAY, APRIL, 11 at 10:00 am PDT) to secure a spot for this unique Tool experience.

Tool announce 2016 USA tour dates

While I try and fight off the effects of a nasty cold I’m fighting at the moment, it seems that those from the Tool website have been busy preparing a number of announcements for us.  For most of us the important news is that we have confirmation of some Tool shows happening in October (I’ll summarise and comment on the changes to ToolArmy in a separate post).

Three dates have been announced: Salt Lake City, Denver and Little Rock:

  • October 24th – Salt Lake City, UT @ Maverik Center. Tickets go on sale Friday, June 10th at 10:00am MDT at all Smith’s Tix locations, smithstix.com and the venue box office.
  • October 26th – Denver, CO @ Pepsi Center. Tickets on sale Friday, June 10th at 10:00am MDT at Altitude Tickets
  • October 28th – Little Rock, AR @ Verizon Arena. Tickets on sale Friday, June 10th at 10am CDT. Purchase tickets at ticketmaster.com or livenation.com. 

It’s also expected that Tool will be announced as part of the Voodoofest and Aftershock Festival lineups in the coming days.  From what I’ve heard this will be a short tour, so don’t expect to see further dates added.

As is the norm these days, there will also be VIP tickets available, firstly via a ToolArmy pre-sale:

VIP EVENT PRE-SALES

A VERY LIMITED NUMBER of special VIP EVENT TICKETS will be available for the above three Tool shows – this as a salute to our distinguished TOOLARMY members who may want to reap the benefits of membership and get more of the Tool concert experience than that of more casual fans.

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

Tool VIP Event round-up

The Tool VIP Event has come and gone, and as expected it included a rehearsal and a Q & A session. A warning for those wanting to stay spoiler free for the show – rehearsal included a couple of surprises, which may or may not bne reflected in the setlist, so I’d avoid reading much further.

At the session where Adam Jones, Danny Carey and Justin Chancellor. Maynard wasn’t in attendance, which probably shouldn’t surprise anyone. There were numerous crowd size estimates, some say 300, others say 500. Regardless, due to the size getting in was slow and the Q & A was reportedly a little tedious.

The rehearsal was a mini-set of sorts and included Vicarious, Opiate (new extended version), Parabol, Parabola, Aenema, The Grudge and a new jam that was described as sounding similar to one we’ve already heard before. It was noted on the Tool Army Members Facebook page that Adam mentioned this was part of a 15 minute song.

Following the rehearsal there was a Q & A session, and some of the highlights were:

  • Adam spoke in regards to the new Tool album that there has been good progress since the lawsuit was done. They wouldn’t be drawn into saying much more about it. Adam was reportedly a little emotional when discussing it.
  • They’re hoping to have the Opiate video out by the end of the year and it’s directed by Dominic Hailstone.
  • It sounds like the Opiate video will be the new version of the track, and not the original. Presumably it’s been re-recorded, and I’d speculate it’s probably what they were doing when the were in the studio with Motorhead earlier this year.
  • It seems as though they are waiting for their record contract to be finished before doing a live DVD.

For those who haven’t been keeping notes, there were a few hints earlier this year from Danny that the Opiate video might be the much discussed curveball. There’s only a few months left this year, so I expect we’ll see some solid news on this in the not to distant future!

Thanks to lachrymologist for the details on the VIP Event.

As to the show tomorrow night, here’s a shot of the stage that ajreeb sent to me:

Tool to perform at VIP Event

Confirmed by Blair today is Tool‘s intention to perform a rehearsal as part of the VIP Event in Arizona:

While hanging out at the loft yesterday , I overheard (fly on the wall that I am) a band member talking about doing a REHEARSAL during the upcoming TOOL VIP EVENT. Wow, a REHEARSAL would certainly be a bonus attraction, especially for those who don’t have a ticket for the festival (baring any proverbial train wrecks, of course.) Actually, a proverbial train wreck might REALLY make it an experience to witness!

That makes the $500 event a whole lot more interesting I reckon! It’s still debatable as to whether this is value for money, but seeing Tool rehearse (albeit with a couple of hundred others) is certainly an opportunity very few people get. And given all the terms and conditions in place for the event, it wouldn’t come as a huge surprise to me to see some new material previewed (though I expect the event will probably just be Adam, Danny and Justin).

Buy tickets from Toolband – not there’s not a huge amount left – 50 at the time of writing!

Tool rehearsal from 2013

WWE’s Justin Roberts to host Tool VIP?

Blair revealed in a short post this morning that WWE’s Justin Roberts is expected to be one of the surprises of the Arizona Tool VIP session, which him apparently moderating the session:

Okay, if I can get some of you to gather around me for a minute… Closer… Okay. Realizing that those fans who are interested in the TOOL VIP EVENT are hoping that I might ‘whisper’ a few more of the “surprises” in store for those who attend, one thing that I did overhear a couple of days ago is that JUSTIN ROBERTS of WWE fame will be the event moderator. Hopefully I won’t be guillotined, with my lopped off head plopping inside a bucket of Tabasco sauce for revealing this, but I thought some of you might like to know… Not sure if I’ll be able to pry away anymore items of interest regarding the event, but you should check back just in case I’m feeling… daring.

I’ve never heard of the guy, but then again I haven’t really watched wrestling since I was about 12. Adam does have a great love for wrestling though, so hopefully this will result in a interesting interaction between the two on the night. If guess it will give them something else to talk about other than the new album.

Tickeets for the VIP Event are still on sale for $500, and you can get them here!

Justin Roberts Tool VIP

Tool VIP Experience on sale now

The Tool VIP Experience package prior to the Monster Mash show is soon on sale via Toolband! As expected the prices are high ($499.98), and while I expect there will be some complainers, it is what it is. The conditions of entry contain one quite interesting waiver, which make you wonder what they have in store for those attending:

7. You will be required to sign a waiver upon check-in. Each participant may be photographed and/or recorded (audio and/or video) by Tool. You unconditionally grant Tool a perpetual and irrevocable license to use your image, name, likeness, in audio/video/photo recordings, etc. in any manner as we see fit throughout the universe.

Being asked to give up the phone is pretty much a given, but that waiver to me suggests that this “show” is being recorded for something. We can only speculate as to what it may be, especially as they’ve said it won’t contain a live performance.

Blair also posts on Toolband that the night “will include Q & A… A RARE GALLERY of ARTWORK and MEMENTOS, PHOTO OPPORTUNITIES, and MONSTER MASH FESTIVAL MERCH available for sale.” Tickets are limited, so if you have that kind of money, then get on board quickly!
