An Evening with Tool in San Francisco

Seems as though Tool have one more date for us, with an Evening With Tool being announced at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco. Unlike the others, this one won’t feature Primus as the support act – just 3teeth.

Details from the Toolband:

TOOL will be performing live at the BILL GRAHAM CIVIC AUDITORIUM in SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA on WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 6th. TICKETS for this “EVENING WITH TOOL” (with 3TEETH to open) go ON-SALE this FRIDAY, DECEMBER 11 at 12:00 PM PST. Please note that there will be NO VIPS for this show.

Tickets will be available via Ticketmaster.

The rest of the tour is pretty much sold out, with VIP tickets available for only a few of the shows left.

Given this venue only holds 7000 people and the only other TOOL shows in California are down in San Diego before the band heads to Texas, I would keep THURSDAY JANUARY 7 in mind for anyone who misses out on tickets this Friday.

Any tips/hints for me buying just ONE ticket this Friday? Should I just try my luck with the Ticketmaster site again & be online ready to go etc.?

^^^ Good call, think they did the same thing last time they played there in SF. And yes- good luck with securing tickets via TM but it’s always worth a shot/can’t hurt.

I’d try the TM app. I saw queens there during the last tour. have an account. be logged in and ready. I was on
my work PC for the queens on sale and couldn’t get in and was able to secure tickets via the App

Just got the email from APE a few mins ago about this show. Seeing Puscifer tonight in Oakland. Excited for a double dose of Maynard Projects in a month’s period.

What’s “an evening with Tool”? Is that like a VIP session?
Had a feeling they’d release more shows.

It’s a designation for a show that has no opener, just about every band does that to sound intimate. “An evening with [insert_band_here]”, most bands will usually do a longer set list (2.5 hours at least), with Tool I doubt they would go that far but might get an extra song or two compared to the rest of the tour.

Never mind, I missed that 3teeth are indeed opening for them. Whatever. :/

Actually, when the SF show was first announced it was clearly indicated there would be no opener:

AN EVENING WITH TOOL IN SAN FRANCISCO (JANUARY 6TH)

TOOL will be performing live at the BILL GRAHAM CIVIC AUDITORIUM in SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA on WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 6th. TICKETS for this “EVENING WITH TOOL” (meaning, no support acts) go ON-SALE this FRIDAY, DECEMBER 11 at 12:00 PM PST. Please note that there will be NO VIPS for this show.

3queeef was added as the opening after the fact, but the headline stayed “An Evening With Tool…”

My first show/ticket I have (20 shows now) that says “an evening with tool” was lateralus release night @ tabernacle Atlanta Georgia and it was by far the best tool show I’ve ever seen. Seriously. Go check out that set list. Hope SF gets a special one. Ill be at Nashville and P’cola this go around and never thought I’d have to say I hope I get lateralus this time #arizona

saw them here a while back and the only difference between this show and the others was jello biafra come out and sang Holiday in cambodia with them. Hate this venue with it being limited seats and first come first serve general admission. I’m lazy and don’t deal with GA anymore. So many people were on the floor last time that people were standing in the hallway outside the main floor area.

TOOL have labeled “An Evening With TOOL” on their tickets for some time now. As for “General Admission”… TOOL require the seats to be bolted to the ground in the “General Admission” area so really you’re purchasing a seat not a standing area ticket. The last few shows I’ve been to I’ve bought those tickets and have regretted it each time because you can barely see the stage. I would recommend buying the cheaper seats that have the row in front of you just a bit lower so you don’t have anybody’s head blocking your view. Side note but relevant,… Read more »

Hmmm I just checked and out of all my ticket stubs (20) only one has “An Evening With Tool.”
