Not long after I went to bed last night, a bunch of extra Tool dates were announced, mainly for regions in the South West USA. The dates are listed below:
– Friday, March 14: Fresno, CA @ Selland Arena
– Saturday, March 15: Las Vegas, NV @ Planet Hollywood
– Sunday, March 16: San Diego, CA @ Valley View Arena
– Monday, March 24: Austin, TX @ Cedar Park Center
– Tuesday, March 25: Houston, TX @ Toyota Center
– Thursday, March 27: Phoenix, AZ @ US Airways Center
Tickets will go on sale this Friday the 14th of February at 10am local time (except Houston which go on sale at 12). VIP tickets will also be available via Toolarmy/band on Thursday the 13th at 10am.
Toolband also advises that the Mexico City date has been changed from the 18th to the 19th of March. Tickets purchased for the old date are still valid for the new one, and there are still tickets available for the show via Ticketmaster.
Okay, Here I go… I’m in a pickle. I will be attending the Fresno, CA show… Being that I have to no problem spending $500 on one of favorite bands, How does the VIP seating go? If i buy regular FL/GA, I can easily camp out all day and be on the barricades… If I buy VIP, where will I be seated because I am not a huge fan of sitting at concerts…
I have tried emailing everyone possible that might give me an answers but NADA. I am hoping you guys will help me out.
According to Blair’s post on Toolband a few days ago:
So the earlier you purchase VIP the closer seats you get? Also, wondering how many VIP can they sell?
do you know if regular seats can also be purchased on thurs thru TA, or only the vip tix?
Only VIP tickets
i just want to know the playlist…. would they dare to play something different…_?? Or maybe a new song? I think we all wonder that everytime Tool tour again… oh well…..
I doubt they will, play any new songs, but they always seem to swap one or two different tracks to every tour they do.
They announce arena shows in mid-feb for mid-march, and we all know they are going to sell out. Well done.
Mixed messages on the TA site. Does the VIP presale start at 10 am or 10 pm PST?!
What do you think are the chances they keep extending the tour through the US after the AZ date?
I actually had to go to dictionary.com to define that phrase. #dumbassamerican
I like how certain sites sold the Houston tickets hours before they were even supposed to.
