Dallas Sold Out!

As I’m sure most of us anticipated, the Tool gig in Dallas at the Nokia Centre sold out pretty damn fast.  Nice work to those who got tickets, condolences to those that didn’t.  No doubt there will be much discussion about scalpers and the like – something I won’t go into at this stage – and we’re all aware on what negative impact they have on ticket sales to needy fans.  I expect other gigs in this tour will also sell out in similar short time.

I will say though that as in the past Fourtheye has helped by advertising unwanted tickets, and it will be the same this time round.  For Fourtheye readers with tickets who are willing to sell them at face value, I will always be happy to adertise them here free of charge.  Just use the Contact form to let me know what you have.

Is anybody else curious about the significance of the lone asterisk (*) next to the Dallas show in the April newsletter?

Maybe that and the fact Blair speaks off one of the best Tool shows ever, could indicate a live dvd shooting. x)

So many possibilities.  I really want the blanks filled in between SLC (7/19) and Dallas (7/25).  So far, per TA member mass_hypnosis, it looks like 7/21 in Phoenix is official… by mass_hypnosis 16 May, 09 | 01:59 AM Tool Phoenix July 21 Just got back from the NIN, Janes Addiction show where they announced pre-concert that Tool will in fact be in Phoenix in July at the US Airways arena :9) But that still leaves the 20th, 22nd, 23rd and 24th as very likely Western US date candidates.  Once I know for sure when they’ll be in the Bay Area, I’ll… Read more »

I just wanna say something that pisses me off.  I was on a 4 day vacation. And i woke up early and went to ticketmaster booth at HEB (on the day of the sale … Firday) to get 2 tickets for my girl and I. And i dont care where we sit… but I showed up at 10am (texas time and the time where the tickets went on sale) and as soon as I got in to find some seats … the entire show was sold out!!!  WTF.  I mean. How the hell did it get sold out in less… Read more »

Anybody know anything about the VIP Club passes that are being resold out there?  What are the perks involved, anything to be aware of, how early can you hang out before the show starts and how late is it open/serving after the show, is the sound ok or is it muffled/piped-in due to glass in the way, is the bar super expensive, cheaper, same as outside, etc?

You’d think with such a small tour and large fanbase that it would make sense to use their Toolarmy site:

Advanced Tickets
Get tickets before they are publicly available
 
Ticket Giveaway
Enter the contest to win free tickets for this show

Ahhhh… that kinda makes since , on why tickets were sold out before it out on sale to public…… Tool army fans got to them 1st.  Thats retarded!!

@ Metal–X: “Tool army fans got to them 1st.  Thats retarded!!” No, that definitely didn’t happen, dude.  There have been NO TA Presales so far. And your comments about “Real Tool fans” are pretty lame.  Everybody enjoys a show their own way.  Also, here’s a a tip for you: Bands tour not just to please current fans, but also to attract new fans.  Big revelation, I know… “half of the crowd are not even singing or head banging to the songs.” Personally, I go to a concert to hear the band on stage, not some ass-clown behind me who thinks… Read more »

@ kittaan

+ 10,000.

When i see tool i usually tell people who are singing to shut up.  I’m there to hear the band and not some asshole who thinks he can sing.

I bought a ticket about 10 minutes into the public sale on that Friday. Didnt have any problems. However, i only bought one ticket. Believe me when  i say that real TOOL fans won the tickets off the radio. I called every hour all day long and couldnt even get in. Kept at it until i got through at the 9 oclock hour and  won me some tickets! If you couldnt get a ticket in the first few minutes off of Ticketbasterd site, you might have been looking for them incorrectly. i got through several times with different seats, went… Read more »

So…. regarding the Dallas Date.

I think what is needed here is a little faith. No more speculation, just an understanding that this will be a very special evening.

Tori Amos is scheduled to play the Nokia theatre the night before Tool. Maybe this is why this is supposed to be such a special show for Tool. Wouldn’t it be great if Tori and Mynard sat down at the piano together?

Right, it’s Austin, not Dallas on the 25th. Perhaps she’ll just show up From out of Nowhere and sprinkle some Angel Dust on the stage, then make her way to Austin.

Fort Worth Tool Fan – I was only able to get (1) One ticket for the July 25 Nokia show, None for Buddies or girlfriend, I was offered twice the money for this ticket, I’m not crazy, I’m going solo! Unless another stoner with ticket want to join me…

Am I the only one catching all the Faith No More hints in jmk’s posts. Did I crack the code? Is Faith No More going to be at the Dallas show?

That would be historic!

I so badly want them to play Sober at the Dallas show. I know it’s a long shot, but this is my 6th time to see them and I still haven’t heard them do it live. That would blow the roof off of what is already going to be an epic show!!!!
