Further details on Tool Presale VIP tickets

For those interested, here are some further details on the VIP ticket presale for the coming Tool dates.  Note that there is no VIP event for either of the festival dates.  There appears to be no presale on regular tickets either, which is disappointing.

For those of you with questions or who are having trouble figuring out how to purchase VIP PACKAGES, please read the following instructions carefully. The Pre-sale begins tomorrow (Wednesday, March 15th) at 10:00am PST and is available exclusively to Toolarmy members. To purchase, go to Tool’s webstore: (DO NOT GO TO TOOLARMY.COM)

Once there, log into your Toolarmy Member Store account using the password you created last year specifically to access the exclusive TA merch/products in the store. Note: To longtime Toolarmy members with accounts purchased PRIOR to June 6, 2016: the password for your store account is different from the password to your old account.

If you can’t remember your store password, click on the following link to reset your password: HERE

You will be prompted to enter the email address you signed up with, and then receive a password-reset email. Follow the instructions on the email to reset your password.

Stupid question… Does the VIP package include a close up ticket to the actual show?

you get your ticket at the door. VIP is first four rows.

Thanks. I got a package for Hamilton but thought it was odd that it didn’t show a seat number anywhere and then re-read the info and realized it didn’t mention anything about the actual show.
