NZ Tour Rumours

Dan emailed me today that he read in a recent copy of the New Zealand music Magazine Rip It Up:

I was reading in the latest Rip It Up (NZ music mag) that reporter David Farrier happened to be on the same flight as Tool when he went to one of their shows in the States towards the end of the touring. He asked them the obvious question: “When will you come back to NZ?” The answer (from Adam) was “Spring, but don’t quote me on that.” So he quoted him and put it in a magazine. I imagine if they will play NZ again then they will play Oz too.

I guess the reporter didn’t pay too much attention to the “don’t quote me on that” part!

Obviously this is far from any kind of confirmation, but certainly gives some hope to seeing them again.  I presume Spring means our Autumn, so I guess we can expect to see dates for sometime in April or May, if at all.  As a general rule of thumb, concert dates for big bands have at least to months notice, so I’d rule out any chance of them being here in March or early April.  I’d say if anything, a May tour is most likely.

Anyone else catch this article, or hear anything else?

I’ve met that David Farrier dude, he’s a good guy, not full of shit at all.

Dont reckon they will be here in Wellington in March as I previously stated. The dates they were penciled in for at the ASB Arena now clash with two big events. smashing pumpkims and QOTSA are playing on the same bill March 20th at the ASB Arena, and there is a 2 day rock concert including KISS, Ozzy, Poison, Alice Cooper and White Snake @ westpac stadium over easter weekend(21-22nd).

I agree, if they do come at all it would be most likely April/May

ironically, part of me wishes they dont come, so I can stop obsessing and get on with life

that was a joke, we all seem to live on every whisper, rumour or possibilty surrounding the band

I started an account just so i cud answer this post..
Originally Tool had inteneded to tour US nov/dec ’07 and then do a japan/Oz/Nz tour in feb/mar ’08.
However they changed their minds and on the last las vegas show maynard announced before Vicarious “this is the last song, from the last show we will play for this album”…”we wont be gone forever, just a while”…
So… unfortunately you wont be seeing Tool in May!…

By May they will be jammin n writin….

expect a new Tool album sumtime between Nov 2009 & May 2010, depending on how it runs…

thank you, J

Dave’s a mate of mine too. Definitely not full of shit. I was on that same flight as them, met Adam with Dave, and can vouch that that’s exactly what he said.

And if you’d like to know what Adam, Danny, or Justin drank on that plane to Vegas, I could also tell you too. But don’t quote me on that.

Does anyone else find those posts above by ‘Justin’ unusual? The ramblings seem very Blair-like to me. If it were all true I would be very happy…
