Dallas Sold Out!

As I’m sure most of us anticipated, the Tool gig in Dallas at the Nokia Centre sold out pretty damn fast.  Nice work to those who got tickets, condolences to those that didn’t.  No doubt there will be much discussion about scalpers and the like – something I won’t go into at this stage – and we’re all aware on what negative impact they have on ticket sales to needy… Read More »Dallas Sold Out!

Toolarmy Maynard Artwork on Ebay

One of the 500 limited edition artworks by Maynard (Sieben I believe it was called), available only to Toolarmy members is now available on Ebay.  The item is currently at US$849, not bad for something was originally around the $200 mark initially (if my recollection is accurate).  According to the description: For auction from 2003 is this Limited Edition Artwork by TOOL front man Maynard James Keenan. I have never… Read More »Toolarmy Maynard Artwork on Ebay

Tool show in Phoenix, AZ?

Area623 from Toolarmy had this to say today: Called the US Airways Center Event Information Hotline and asked them when Tool tickets go on sale. They told me to call back next week as everything still isn’t concrete and that they’ll have more information then. July date?? Think of this what you will… Update: Word is it will be the 21st of July.

Summer Tour Information

There are plenty of questions (and many more unanswered) about the upcoming Tool tour.  In order to alleviate some of these concerns, and to help readers make better decisions about what shows to go see, I have created the Tool Summer 2009 Tour page, which contains all currently known information regarding the tour. Not really much more to say, except it wil be updated as I recieve news, both from… Read More »Summer Tour Information

Tool are Hot!

Thanks to Christo for the tip!  Fourtheye hope all our Californian comrades affected by the fires are doing well…

April Newsletter

Blair posted the April Newsletter today, which was pretty short and confirms four tour dates – the three festivals and Salt Lake City.  He mentions that he will be posting other info on Toolarmy for a change.  So far only one post I can find, which suggests he knows the dates for the summer tour, and that there are no LA dates at this stage.  LA fans need not freak… Read More »April Newsletter

Tool playing Dallas?

Magnus emailed me another “radio station” confirmation today, this time for a Tool gig in Dallas, TX on the 24th 25th of July.  He also mentions that Tool are playing a smaller venue (6k) this time around, rather than the usual large venue (15-18k).  He didn’t mention the venue name, so hopefully this means something to those Texans out there.  Update: It’ll be at Nokia Theatre apparently. Official confirmation to… Read More »Tool playing Dallas?
