Danny announced Tool sideshows in Melbourne and Brisbane

According to reports from Cubanpete, Danny has been on Triple J this morning and mentioned that there will Tool sideshows in Brisbane and Melbourne.  According to the release on the Triple J site:

Mon 24 Jan – Entertainment Centre BRISBANE
Wed 2 Feb – Sidney Myer Music Bowl, MELBOURNE

Tickets for both shows go on sale Monday November 8. Get more info at bigdayout.com
Big Day Out promoters have said that these will be the only headline shows for the band on this tour.

Great news for Queenslanders! 

Also mentioned was that fact that the Williams sisters love Tool!

The tennis star was in Melbourne playing the Australian Open. Carey reports that both Williams sisters are big rock fans and that Tool got invited to watch Serena win that tournament.

"I’m hoping she’s going to do well again this time in the Australian Open and have us down. Last time we had so much fun and we got to watch her whip Sharapova’s ass. It was awesome so we’re kinda hoping that’s going to happen again. Got to do the celebratory dinner with her after with her Mom and her hitting coach…. It was a blast. I hope she comes out to the gig this time. She couldn’t get away last time because she had too much press to do. I know the feeling!"

Update: Also mentioned was that New Zealand’s Jakob will be supporting, which is no huge surprise given that Aaron Harris will be coming with Tool and has done plenty of work with them.

Update 2: Here are some more ticketing details.  No word on price yet:

Could I advise the sensible course of action is to wait to see if you can get Brisbane tickets first?

I bought 2 tix for me & my bro to BOTH BDO’s in syd expecting a sidey. I’m now looking at trying to get sideshow tix in brisbane, in which case I’ll be looking to sell my bdo’s & hoping to get gold coast tix. Don’t suppose I could perhaps… Read more »

Hi Busty,
I’ve had a change of plans. My amigo talked me into going to the BDO.
All it took was Rammstein played extra extra loud and a reminder of how epic they were last time they came out.
If there’s any changes in the plan i’ll get back to you.
Cheers.
Hope everyone can score tickets!!!

No drama’s Mr Fever however I am gonna have to curse your friends name for talking you into it :p

Shervo mate, I’m not even sure what I’m doing myself. I’m going both sydney bdo’s bt was lookin to maybe sell them & go to brissie instead but I’ve just recorded my bands ep all weekend and spent more than I budgeted for so I don’t think it’s gonna be a reality for me 🙁

If I manage to sort something & it looks like Im gonna get brissie tix I’ll let ya know but it’s not likely
