Just a little confirmation on details for the Sydney Tool show on the 24th of January. Prices are $115 for Gold tickets, which is General Admission, and $90 for Silver, which are the seats at the back. GA will be my goal but anywhere in the building will be good enough for me.
I signed up to the Ticketmaster website online the other day, and got an email with details of a Pre-Sale for the Gigantour feature Megadeth and Soulfly. There was no indication if there would be a Tool pre-sale, but if you’re planning on buying online, I’d suggest signing up just in case – it costs nothing (except spam). If there is a pre-sale, you’ll hear all about it on Fourtheye…
lol in Belgium we pay like 40 dollars for a ticket.
40 Euros? Which is around AU$70.
Anyway, there’s a distinct advantage in bands touring Europe and the US, the costs are lower, and there are more places they can visit within a small area. Obviously when you tour somewhere you can play 30 shows, prices will be cheaper than somewhere you can only play 5-6.
i would say most fans wouldn’t give a shit what they need to pay to see them. i do remember that last time tool toured aus it was only $78.50 (i knew keeping my ticket would come in handy). maybe they need the extra dosh to pay for all the special effects n shit. interesting though that ticket prices for single shows are about as much as they would be to see them at big day out.
Yeah, I pretty much would have bought a ticket no matter what it cost.
Same here, $115 is a lot, but it’s still worth every cent in my opinion. If I was unemployed or a student though, then I may well have a very different attitude….
I’m a student and I think $115 for the best seats and standing in front of the stage etc. is a good price. Have you seen what the Red Hot Chili Peppers are charging for their ‘Chili Bowl’ tickets? If you’re a fan of the band (Tool) then I think $115 is appropriate for the best tickets and $90 for the standard tickets is fine. I remember reading an interview with Maynard (it’s probably on this site somewhere) where he said that due to oil prices and other details, their current tour is costing them about 25% more than last… Read more »
I hope the prices turns off everyone so i can get my tickets easy.. it most certainly wont though.

When I say 40 US dollars I mean 40 US dollars! I paid 32 euros for my ticket.
Friday is gonna be one very sweet day…
Or tragic depending on how sales go….
I’m confident that those who really want tickets will get them. Let me expalin: Firstly, although Tool are very popular and their previous Aussie shows have sold many tickets in short periods of time (including sell-outs), the fact that they will be at the Big Day Out might turn away a few fans from their sideshows. You know what I’m talking about – people who say “Oh I’d love to see Tool live” but who then just buy BDO tickets in order to see them etc. This happened with Metallica in 2004. Yes, lots of people will want to go… Read more »
I suppose your now selling tix on ebay after writing that crap.
i have a spare ticket to the Sydney, i would rather sell (at face value) to a tool fan, so if anyone is interested please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work something out
What section is the ticket in, or is it GA? I have my ticket, but I know some missed out.
