Update 20/11 14:48 ACST: A second Melbourne show has been announced for the 23rd of February. Presale starts at 3:30pm local time. No word of a second Sydney show at this point, but I think it’s a matter of time. Brisbane show also seems to be selling quite strongly…
Update 20/11 12:23 ACST: The NZ show presale sold out in under 7 minutes. A second show for the 29th has been announced, and on sale now!
I know most of you Australian (and New Zealand) Tool fans have been paying great attention to the need to buy tickets tomorrow, for the Tool tour coming in February 2020. It’s a nerve wracking time, especially if you happen to be a resident of Melbourne, Sydney or Auckland.
In case you haven’t been paying attention, pre-sales kick off tomorrow at 2pm local time (note that due to no daylight savings, Brisbane sales are an hour later than the other eastern states shows). You will need to be a Frontier member to access these ticket, so don’t waste time – sign up now: https://www.frontiertouring.com/signup
Members will each receive a unique code. Note that you can only buy 4 tickets during the presale (2 packages, which I assume are the VIP tickets). Actual sales are via Ticketek via this link.
Prices for the Australian shows are as follows (note that the Auckland show is slightly more expensive):
|General Admission — Floor||$180.20|
|Gold — Reserved Seating||$180.20|
|Silver — Reserved Seating||$146.60|
|Bronze — Reserved Seating||$106.65|
What can we expect will happen tomorrow? General Admission tickets for all shows will sell pretty fast. In fact probably expect Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland to sell out the allocation within minutes. The remaining tickets for those three shows I expect will sell out not too long after. I think it’s unlikely there will be tickets available for presale an hour after the on-sale time.
Brisbane and Perth fans may have a little more leeway, but still – I’d count on being ready to buy as they go on sale.
Didn’t get a ticket? Fear not – the pre-sale isn’t all of the tickets, there will be more in each category available on the general sale on Friday.
I’m a ToolArmy member – should I be able to buy some tickets? Not this time I’m afraid – VIP tickets aren’t exclusive this time around so it seems.
Will there be more shows added? There appears to be enough room in the schedule to assume that there could be extra shows added in Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland. History would show this will happen as well. If you miss out on the sales for shows in these towns, don’t lose hope – it’s likely next week you’ll have a shot at the second show.
Good luck everyone!
