Tool have been confirmed for the Big Day Out, as announced in the official press release. Here’s their rather exaggerated and manipulative comment about Tool.
BIG DAY OUT 2007 will host the heaviest modern metal experience of all, TOOL. After 15 years of breaking, shaking and earthquaking new musical ground, TOOL topped the charts in 2006 with their latest unique melding of art, prog and metal, 10,000 Days. With an unmercifully heavy set that reaches back over a decade to the still staggering Sober, BIG DAY OUT 2007 will feel the earth move under its feet as TOOL rumble and roar into life.
Other acts confirmed include Muse, Evermore and Jet. Tickets go on sale Friday 13th October at the Big Day Out website and other outlets for all the dates announced:

And I’d also like to congratulate Hellboy, who is getting married today. Hope he has a wonderful wedding and honeymoon, and it’s great those people at the Big Day Out gave an early present!
wedding on a wednesday.. what the
yeh congrats hellboy i hope you have a great day.
but what a good bdo lineup hey. im pretty happy with it cause they always save a lot of good bands till the 2nd announcement.
Hopefully there’s some more (quality) heaviness added to the BDO – one of Meshuggah, Mastodon or Isis would do nicely.
All the best to Mr & Mrs Hellboy!
i dunno im not really into meshuggah or mastodon. but still i think a bit of indy goes really well at big day out — it justs suits the mood. the yeah yeah yeahs and wolfmother(how ever overrated they have become) are still big day out priorities for me. lets just hope reznor decides to come do a show for some very weird reason.
but hey if tool are def doing the bdo then they mite just do a brissie side show which woullddd bbbbb sweeeet.
Congrats on the wedding Hellboy. Good luck with marriage.
BDO looks fucking sweet this year. I’ll be going to Sydney and Gold Coast with that lineup for sure!
Me 2. Except Syndey I have no reason to be in Sydney for BDO. The gold coast will be enough for this old timer!
as for tickets i think it was mentioned that they have so many tickets per week to sell?
is this still correct?
and how long would that go for til they are completely gone?
as i’m still completely unsure what i want to do about BDO or wait for a bris announcement (though it is looking very unlikely now)
and congrats on the nuptials
Congratulations Matt, and best wishes!
“as for tickets i think it was mentioned that they have so many tickets per week to sell? is this still correct?” No, thats not correct. Last year they released an extra 500 tickets a week for Sydney to combat some scalping, since the show sold out in just over a week. They have a big lump at the start, and it sells until its sold out. “and how long would that go for til they are completely gone?” Depends on the venue. Sydney will sell out almost instantly, while other cities will take a couple of months to sell… Read more »
If you take out Tool I think the announcement sucks. You could be right replayee, and I hope you are. But going on how shocking last years’ line-up was… I can’t help but be sceptical. Which might be a good thing, I like being pleasantly surprised. I wonder why it isn’t on Australia Day in Sydney this year…
as i’m still completely unsure what i want to do about BDO or wait for a bris announcement (though it is looking very unlikely now).
Play it safe josephine. I’d get a BDO ticket, and if another show is announced then I’m sure someone would be a willing buyer.
I’m hopeing they announce some good aussie bands. Grinspoon are always good, and im still betting silverchair will make an appearance too.
thanks guys for replies *thumbs up*
i just wanted to post this rather dreadful comparison about Evanescence’s new album
“Lee’s powerful voice and emotional lyrics– backed by Balsamo’s funk,metal,rock guitar style– has created an album that sounds a lot like what Tool and Tori Amos would produce if they ever joined forces.”
of def croaka silverchair would be quite an addition but grinspoons not my thing.
haha… That’s funny. Maybe they get literal brain-freeze in Calgary. I lost my song of Tori and Maynard doing ‘Muhammad My Friend’, it’s fantastic. Oh well… I’ll download it again when I get around to it.
its on toolband now. in the tour dates section and on the news section
congra-tool-ations hellboy. are you planning on having little demons in the near future?
I agree with charred remains, Tool are the opal in the goat shit. I wouldn’t have picked the Violent Femmes to play, but really their time is over. They must have been cheap as chips because they played my university Orientation show last year.
congrats to the webmaster.
ghahahaha sydney morning kings refers to tool as “metal kings.
I read that Replayee… Even the Big Day Out people, who you assume know something about the bands they put on, wrote “the HEAVIEST modern metal experience of all”, they’re all hilarious.
hi guest you received a mail from one of the behind the scene guys at fourth eye yeah?
i sure did jonas or is it “we” sure did 🙂
Owen? i can’t use the guest account 🙁 that’s cool cause everyone apart from hellboy has forgotten about my pre 10000 days release mischief… so you can basically delete my guest account.
I don’t have the power to delete accounts… and you can use the guest account if you like, I guess I just assumed it was someone posting the same thing as you, I think I can vaguely remember the mischief, but I was just looking and not posting here by that stage. I guess I could have cross-checked IP addresses to check if it was you but that would require looking at something.
lol. that’s cool. i’m just surprised it’s you who sent me the mail. thought you were just regular guy who frequented this place.
besides this. cross referencing ips would be hard cause i have so many different VPNs established to many places around the world. hey by the way where did that grizzly thing (hellboy) off to for the honeymoon. haha sure hope its worth it. hope the lady likes tool
I am pretty much just a regular, but this month while Hellboy is away Foamy and I will be posting news and monitoring stuff generally… nothing permanent. Surprised? Look up the top and see who wrote the post…
As for hellboy, I’ve no idea where they are off to. But I’m sure he knows what he’s doing… I can’t imagine myself getting married right now, but you never know.
ahh! article by charred remains. usually don’t see that part. hmmm one question, when will the votes be closed for the logo comp? just to let you know i’ll send the original vector graphic format for the two logos when the voting ceases. winner or not. fourth eye can do what ever they wish with these designs.
this is nothing new to me. i do this for the linux community also, provide artwork for the GNOME project when i get spare time. for one thing it builds my “portfolio”.
I think he went to Cali for the honeymoon?
Ummm… I think the voting will continue for another couple of weeks. Hellboy wants to launch the redesign by the end of October, I think he’ll have better things to do on his honeymoon though. So I’m not sure… guess we’ll wait and see.
lol “better things”
Saw Cog yesterday at the Palace and I must say I have never in my life seen such huge abundance of TOOL shirts on hairy grown 30 somethingold men.
They played 4 new songs…JJJYEssssssssssssssssssssssssssss
hey doors, isn’t the Palace a long way from Kurnell?
