Blair makes a couple of posts on Toolband/Army to day, the first of which reveals that Tool will be playing at the Olympic Main Stadium in Seoul, Korea on the 15th of August.
He also mentions that Danny will be playing with Volto on July the 20th at the Baked Potato in LA.
jeez, you can tell the fella’s are rollin in it, with all the plane ticket purchases they’re always making 😉
Korea, Japan… just head south to Australia and NZ please!! I’m so frustrated. Tool came here for their ‘promotional listening tour’ for their new album yet we the only place NOT to have any shows announced! 10,000 Days went #1 here in Australia and NZ and previous tours have been huge successes. Why leave us out?
they are so not coming to Australia this year it seems..
It’s coz the Herald Sun only gave the album 2.5 stars out of 5.
I think the only reason we haven’t heard of Australian dates yet, is because the shows have been booked but an announcement can’t be made. Ths suggests to me they’re maybe doing the Big Day Outs, and if so we won’t find out until October.
The S. Korean date is part of Metallica’s “Escape from the Studio ’06” tour; Tool is supporting. Tickets went on sale back in April.
If Tool play at the 2007 Big Day Out, it’s gonna be quite ‘big’ as the Red Hot Chili Peppers are apparently playing/headlining. I’d imagine that Tool would play second-last (before RHCP) and play for maybe an hour or so…? That’s okay but I’d prefer to see them at their own show with a full setlist nearing 2 hours. We’d probably get a similar setlist to what they are playing in Europe for festivals (Stinkfist, 46&2, The Pot, Jambi, Schism, Right In Two, Sober, Lateralus, Vicarious, Aenima). I hope they announce something good soon… I can’t wait for the BDO… Read more »
That’s one thing that puzzles me. RHCP seem pretty keen to play, and seem to be plugging it left right and centre. Personally, i couldn’t see that there’s room on the show (or in the organisers budget) for both of them.
Either way, if Tool do play, there will be side shows, presumably in Sydney, Melbourne and maybe Brisbane, so if I do go to a Big Day Out, then hopefully I’ll be able to catch one of these shows as well.
mmm big day out was announced september last year rather than november. but i hav to agree i would rather see tool seperately
I cant see tool playing the big day out tour, not when they can sell out the biggest areanas in all states capitals, and probably have second shows in melbourne and sydney, can you imagine how tool would react when some snotty nosed channel v reporter hassles them for stoopid interviews asking dumb arse questions it wont happen
Yeah I remember Maynard being pretty pissed off with the organisers of the 2004 BDO who wanted APC to play but in the day time, at like 1:30pm. I think he was pretty insulted by that, given that year’s lineup. I think he expected to be playing shortly before Metallica that year – he apparently had never heard of the Hoodoo Gurus etc.
Robert Fripp’s journal has this bit re: TOOL:
“A late afternoon drive down from Bredonborough, power-Tooled along with 10,000 Days. This continues to be the only rock music I’ve heard in a while that makes me want to strap on a guitar and rock out!”
i dont blame him either had i!!!!!!!!

The ability to sell out concerts around Australia hasn’t stopped Metallica, Red hot Chilli Peppers, Foo Fighters, Soundgarden and many others from headlining the BDO’s
can you imagine how tool would react when some snotty nosed channel v reporter hassles them for stoopid interviews asking dumb arse questions it wont happen
Yeah, watch their recent interview with Channel V and you can see exactly how they’d react….
Was it the same reaction System of a down had when they were interviewed by andrew g?
dont have pay tv. but would you put those bands youve just mentioned in the same category as tool???
no i dont think so, none of those bands are even close they all play 3 to 5 minute user freindly songs which fit into “a big day out” schedule perfectly.
what happened who interviewed them???
Tool stays at #4 on the charts!
