Pre-sale FAQ

I’ve had about 20 or so emails today asking about the pre-sales, so in an attempt to try and minimize the amount of time I spend logged into Gmail, here’s a compilation of what little we know about the presales.  As more information comes to hand I’ll try and keep this post updated.

UPDATE

Pre-sale details, which include a link and password to the sales are now up on Toolarmy. Tickets go on-sale at midday tomorrow, and according to Ticketek it will be 12:00PM AEST, which suggests it’s local time rather than daylight savings time. Please log into Toolarmy to view them, and remember that under no circumstances are they to be published anywhere on Fourtheye.

What we know:

  • Ticketmaster have details of a fanclub pre-sale for the Melbourne show on their site, which claims that tickets will go on sale on the 4th of November at 12:00pm.  12:00pm is usually lunchtime, not midnight.
  • Ticketek have no details on the Brisbane gig on their site.
  • Both sites are listing ticket prices at between $108 and $140.
  • Blair said in a Toolarmy exclusive post:

NOTE ABOUT PRE-SALES
I am still waiting for a link from the promoter for ToolArmy member pre-sales for the 2 ‘solo’ shows in Australia. As SOON as I get this, I will post the information.

They are all the facts we have.  Anything else out there is speculation.

 

How I think it’ll go down:

I imagine some time, probably on Thursday morning Australian time, Blair will post a password as a Toolarmy exclusive post.  This will probably include a link to the page on the appropriate ticketing agents site, though I doubt this link will be private.

Some speculate that Toolarmy members may get individually emailed passwords.  This may happen, but I’d be a little surprised if this were the case.

Should I join Toolarmy?

The answer is yes, probably.  Presuming the password gets posted as an exclusive post on Toolarmy, then the US$40 you’d spend to join is probably good value for money.  However, joining Toolarmy probably won’t guarantee you a ticket.  The presale will most likely be limited to a certain amount of tickets, so there is still probably an element of first in first served.  Nothing is guaranteed though, so don’t complain to me if you join Toolarmy and miss out.

Note: under no circumstances will the password or link to the pre-sale be published on Fourtheye.  Any comments which do so will be immediately removed.  Please don’t bug me for it, I won’t be giving it to anyone.

Thankyou for your dedication to this website!

I’m so glad Tool have decided to just do big day out gigs now.
I’d much rather pay 160 to sponsor great acts like Lupe Fiasco and Mia to be here, as well as fight people who are ‘just there because its a festival’ for a spot.
Paying $120 and seeing a longer set with fellow fans is for suckers.

For all those considering joining, I joined yesterday and can tell you it was about $42.50AUD after the currency conversion. Possibly the best time to join from a financial viewpoint, if you’re Australian.

About 98% of people using statistics in posts on the internet are pulling them out of their ass.

And in my experience (over a dozen TººL shows now), while I’ve for sure seen some losers, it’s been no more or no less than most other rock shows I’ve attended. Except for that one fucker that insists on yelling “Fuckin’ Toooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooool!!” throughout the whole show, including songs like Wings. That guy is a Major Douche.

70%, 98%, all I have to do is quote Homer when he said, “Aw, people can come up with statistics to prove anything, Kent. Forty percent of all people know that.”

Ticket pre-sales? Password going to be posted in ToolArmy? Say what?! I’ve obviously been sucked into bizarro world…

I’m not sure if this has been answered but if i am a ToolArmy member can i buy a ticket for a non-Tool Army Member?
The reason being is that im the only person i know with a membership and eligible for this pre-sale so there is no point me sitting alone.

If you check the Ticketmaster listing, it now reads:

Fanclub Presale
Start: Thu 04/11/10, 12:00
End: Sun 07/11/10, 23:59
My Ticketmaster Presale
Start: Thu 04/11/10, 12:00
End: Fri 05/11/10, 23:00

Where did the My Ticketmaster thing come from?
Is there really two presales or is this an error or Ticketmaster’s behalf?

god, i hope that’s just an error as if it turns into a ticketmaster pre-sale as well then there goes the advantage of being a TA member. RAH!

There are indeed two concurrent presales happening… my initial assumpion is that they are seperate alotments of tickets, but I’ve not confirmed with ticketmaster as yet.

The passwords for both presales have been posted – an email I received from Ticketmaster and on the TA website. They are the same password. So it couldn’t be two different sales – they just listed different finish times?

I just got an email from my ticketmaster with a code word. I wonder if this goes out to all my ticketmaster members or just ones who have added Tool as one of their favourite acts.
Also it says a limit of 4 per transaction

For those of us planning on seeing the Brisbane show, the TA pre-sale seems to start 30mins before the Ticketek pre-sale. Good luck all.

furnerburner
Member
furnerburner

oh well its not that bad for Brisbane I guess…it’s not the same password.

BUT it’s one of those stupid presales that doesn’t give preferential tickets to presale buyers…

I bought presale tickets to pearl jam about 4 years ago the minute they went on sale….got fine seats..

Then my mate bought normal tickets a couple of weeks before the gig and he got a better seat than me!!!!!

furnerburner

OH FARK IT!

It’s a my ticketek presale as well! and they get it 30 mins after tool army members!

At least it 30mins after, ticketmaster is same time

beth
Member

best of luck to everyone!
also, i didn’t get the ticketmaster email even though Tool are in my favourites so perhaps only those in the gig cities got it (i’m in perth)?

beth
Member

also, on ticketmaster both presales start at the same time:
Onsale to General Public
Start: Mon 08/11/10, 09:00
Fanclub Presale
Start: Thu 04/11/10, 12:00
End: Sun 07/11/10, 23:59
My Ticketmaster Presale
Start: Thu 04/11/10, 12:00
End: Fri 05/11/10, 23:00

It says when u go to the tool army link…

says two separate presales.

What really sucks it that people who get presale tickets are likely to get the same or worse tix than people in the general allotment of tickets….

I’m going for seats, so this is annoying.

Also, people going to Brisbane be aware that the moshpit area is split into two sections…one front and one rear section.

Last time Tool played in Brisbane I got the back section dammit…was still great because I was on the rail…but if your not, i would definitely recommend seats…

beth
Member

ahh that’s ticketek! ticketmaster says both start at 12 (checked both links through TA to confirm). darn! if flights to brisbane weren’t so pricey i’d probably prefer to go for that show.

furnerburner
Member
furnerburner

Brisbane entertainment centre is definitely preferred unless u score seats up the front at the Myer Bowl, or get the rail in the general admission area…

The sound is great though, the the official capacity is like 25,000 people…last time Tool was sold out, but im sure there couldn’t of been that many people there…

this is so stupid, has to be a fk up. If not, well… blair mislead us. hope tool management contact them so it doesnt happen, highly doubt that.
