Sydney traditionally sells out pretty quick, so if you’re planning on getting a ticket, plan to be online at midnight to do so.  I wouldn’t be surprised if tickets sell out by the time the average Tool fan wakes up.  Considering that the Sydney BDO is mid-week (on Australia Day) I wouldn’t be banking on a second show being announced.

For this years event, Sydney, Melbourne and Gold Coast Big Day Outs sold out pretty quick, and I don’t think Adelaide and Perth weren’t far behind.  As I said, if you’re planning on going, don’t leave it – buy your ticket as they go on sale.

Still no news on any side shows.  I think that there will be some, but don’t expect them to be announced until a week or so after festival tickets go on sale.

I got mine! Any day you buy tickets to see tool is a good day!
Question is, whether sideshows are going to happen since there is now 2 sydney shows?

I can’t believe how insensitive you Aussies are being… flaunting your ticket purchases and lording it over those of us who won’t get to see TººL on this tour…….

(nah, just fucking with ya’ll. Enjoy the hell out of this!)

AGREED, AND I’M A YANK… ALTHOUGH, I MUST TELL YOU, NOT ALL AMERKS ARE YANKS AS WE’RE DESCRIBED DOWN UNDER… THE TERM APPLIES TO A MINORITY OF THE COUNTRY’S POPULATION
