Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

Ok, so...were they doing a show at a high school or what? I used to sing Christmas songs on stages like that when I was in first grade (me and the whole class; nothing special about me).

Dallas goes on sale tomorrow and still no hint as to pricing structure.
Ah yes; that was fun, when Boston went on sale: log in ahead of time, wait...wait...wait...GO! GO! GO! NO TIME FOR CRITICAL THINKING, JUST HIT THE BUTTON!

Re: The Grudge (WARNING: It Hapenned!!)

i can deal with the setlist rotation of one song (i guess) but why cant the band change the order of songs? make it a surprise on what will be the opener or what song is right before intermission or give each city a treat when transitioning (segue) to different songs from other songs that would nor...

Re: The Grudge (WARNING: It Hapenned!!)

"Descending" - by far the weakest song of Fear Innoculum. Is this like a "velvet rope" type of thing? Like, the better the song that isn't good enough for you, the cooler you must be? Or do you actually occupy some weird middle zone of musical taste, where you like what Tool does enough to listen t...

I paid less then 50 for a floor ticket in Amsterdam earlier this year.
Yeah, but that's only because people in Amsterdam are generally too busy getting baked and spanked to have time for much else, even a Tool show.

Anyone in the US have any idea what the original on sale price has been for tickets to the arenas they are currently playing?
My balcony ticket (Boston) was about $79 direct from Ticketmaster (including all fees; the face value might have been $55 or $59 etc.).

I have to contend with public transportation and would like to have an idea of what I'll be dealing with for times. Given that the stated "showtime" is 7:30 and they have an opening band, any guesses as to when Tool will likely go on and how long they might play? I think they played around 2 hours w...

Re: New Album Touring

I wish Ticketmaster would let you see the general price tiers before going on sale; by the time they're on sale, sure, you can see the prices, but at that moment you're in a panic trying to nail something down. (Also, since I'm not a man, I'd like to be able to tell my wife I bought the cheapest tic...

Well, that's bad news (I don't want to take it to the bank, dammit!).
