Confirmed by Blair today is Tool‘s intention to perform a rehearsal as part of the VIP Event in Arizona:
While hanging out at the loft yesterday , I overheard (fly on the wall that I am) a band member talking about doing a REHEARSAL during the upcoming TOOL VIP EVENT. Wow, a REHEARSAL would certainly be a bonus attraction, especially for those who don’t have a ticket for the festival (baring any proverbial train wrecks, of course.) Actually, a proverbial train wreck might REALLY make it an experience to witness!
That makes the $500 event a whole lot more interesting I reckon! It’s still debatable as to whether this is value for money, but seeing Tool rehearse (albeit with a couple of hundred others) is certainly an opportunity very few people get. And given all the terms and conditions in place for the event, it wouldn’t come as a huge surprise to me to see some new material previewed (though I expect the event will probably just be Adam, Danny and Justin).
Buy tickets from Toolband – not there’s not a huge amount left – 50 at the time of writing!
