It’s here my friends – the Tool Australian and New Zealand tour of 2020 kicks off in Perth at the RAC Arena. Good luck to all our Western Australian comrades who are getting along to the show!
I saw a really cool article online the other day from PLSN (Production, Lights & Staging News) which talks to several of Tool’s crew members about the epic light, video and laser production that is the Fear Inoculum tour. The article has some great photos as well. Perhaps avoid if you don’t want set spoilers though!
I’d also add that Blair announced on Toolband that we well be getting some tour posters, details are below:
Tour posters for our friends in Australia include artwork by ALEX GREY, ADI GRANOV and MILES JOHNSTON. Look for them at the Merch kiosks. and remember that he band is not responsible for any huntsmans that might be hanging around at these booths with unbridled admiration.https://toolband.com/news/2020/australian-tour-posters/
Finally, as I may have mentioned before, I’ll be in Brisbane and Melbourne for the Tool shows, and there will be a catchup in each town:
Brisbane 20th: the Entertainment Centre isn’t exactly in the middle of a busy partying district, so the catchup here will be reasonably informal and short. Provided I can find it (I’ve never been to the venue), I’ll be planning on hanging at the Beer Garden Bar from around 6:30 onwards. Here’s a Facebook event for those inclined to come along.
Melbourne 22nd: on the afternoon prior to the show we’ll be having a get together at the Beer Deluxe venue, at Federation Square kicking off at 4pm (I might be there earlier if time permits). Once again there’s a Facebook event, so feel free to join. Depending on how keen we all are, we may repeat the experience the next day prior to the second gig.
See you all there!
