Posted on the Frontier Facebook page not long ago are details of a VIP ticket sale for the coming Tool shows in Australia and New Zealand:
FOR DEDICATED FANS!
On sale to public Fri 12 Apr, 9am (local time)
Adding to the sheer power and force of a live performance that Tool ticketholders have to look forward to, those who purchase a VIP package will also receive:
– Access to sound-check with members of Tool
– Q+A session with Adam
– Exclusive merchandise pack including:
1. An exclusive Tool tour t-shirt
3. VIP laminate
4. Bag of goodies
(These items feature designs exclusive to the VIP package and are not available for purchase anywhere else)
– Early entry to the Floor (for GA ticket holders only)
*NOTE: the VIP package does NOT include an event ticket. Please ensure you have purchased your event ticket prior to purchasing your VIP package.
Packages go on sale from 9am local time, Friday 12 April and will retail for $504 + ticketing agency transaction fees.
I don’t like to editorialise too much, but $500 is an outrageous amount for this in my opinion. Still, no doubt there will be some takers.
