James told me he found this on the Big Day Out forum:
Heavy rockers TOOL, who plan to release their new studio album in May, will hit Australian shores on August 8th for shows in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide.
Tue August 08 – Entertainment Centre – Brisbane – Australia
Thu August 10 – SuperDome – Sydney – Australia
Sat August 12 – Rod Laver Arena – Melbourne – Australia
Mon August 14 – Entertainment Centre – Adelaide – Australia
I sure hope it’s true, Tuesday night in Brisbane kinda sucks for me, but I’m sure I’ll be able to wrangle the time off. Be warned, I wouldn’t really consider this as confirmed so don’t get too excited.
August 12th in Melbourne!!!!! If that actually happens I now know where I will be celebrating my 26th birthday. First the piece in Kerrang, now this…even if it is a rumour I am still chuffed. It has been a good week.
woohooo time to rack up some KM’s in the forester
Toolshed added this to their tour page, but presumably based on the same source.
I looked around and Tool probably won’t be playing at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne on Sat. Aug 12th because of the following event:
However, they could play at another venue in town?
Can’t wait for some more concrete Aussie tour info!
I think there’s a quite reasonable chance it’s not the real deal. In the same rumour Pearl Jam are said to be playing at the Telstra Dome in Melbourne, right in the middle of the footy season.
Anyway, we’ll have to wait and see…..
This is rubbish. Tool have been confirmed playing Japan August 12 & 13. That’s why this got taken off Toolshed when someone pointed it out.
Good one mate, welcome to 3 months ago……
You do realise there’s been one or two more posts since this one…..
