It's worth noting that this is the Greek in LA, as there are several Greek Theaters. And I'm bummed it's not the Greek in Berkeley, but not surprised.

Very interesting.
Puscifer, A Perfect Circle And Failure To Perform At Maynard James Keenan’s 50th Birthday Bash
12.3.13 at 8:18am Posted by wookubus

Puscifer, A Perfect Circle and Failure will perform at a special show dubbed ‘Cinquanta‘ which will celebrate the 50th birthday of Maynard James Keenan. That event will take place at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, CA on May 10th with Keenan himself stating:
“Making it to the half century mark can be equal parts daunting and relieving. I figured I would remove the sting of officially being referred to as ‘Gramps’ by throwing a party and outlasting all of my rude friends.”

Keenan is said to have personally asked Failure to perform at the event—which thus far will mark their second reunion show. Of that Keenan said:
“This was the perfect opportunity to tick off one of my bucket list items in the form of a Failure reunion. What better birthday present could one ever hope for?”

Tickets for the birthday show will go on sale this Friday, December 06th at 10am PST. A VIP package with special seating and commemorative items will be made available a day prior, launching at 10am PST on December 05th at this location. http://www.frontgatetickets.com/portal

Shocker TOOL is not involved in the 50th BDay party. Once again shows where Tool is on Jimmy's priority list. Notice the date as well, May 10th. Good luck with that #Tool2014 thing.

Wait a minute .. This isn't even Maynards birthday. THIS IS DANNYS BIRTHDAY. Maynards birthday is April 17. so they're celebrating may jays birthday on Dannys actual birthday, and no Tool? this makes no sense. just why not tool? and why the fuck is Puscifer headlining this?

Dude, you are right. Good catch. That is very strange.

Based purely on the date, this is the first non-Tool thing he's done that has made me go "what the fuck?" I'm not a huge birthday guy but I'd be bothered if one of my friends threw a big bash for himself when his actual bday was almost a month before.

Unless there's something to the "and special guests" part...

Other than that I don't see how one non Tool date kills all hope for a 2014 release.

And Puscifer is headlining because its his party and he'll headline if he wants to (I suspect Failure is actually playing last, by the way)

I imagine he's gonna be one spent little old focker after performing with two bands in one night. He better go light on the vino until after the performance.

I am very curious about the dates thing. We'll likely get no explanation, but Blair will probably make some cryptic reference to it in a Newsletter, further confusing the issue. That's their MO after all.

Also agree that this isn't a death knell for a 2014 Tool release. However, I'm still counting on 2016, just so I'm not disappointed again.

I'm not sure the Tool live experience is an especially joyful one for Maynard, so there's no real surprise that Tool aren't playing this show. The acts that he's chosen are one's he has almost full control over, whereas if he'd stuck Tool into the equation, they'd either have to pick a larger venue, or the "ordinary" person wopuld have virtually no chance of getting a ticket. Not to mention the Greek Theatre I'm presuming isn't really big enough to deal with their full stage show.

What I find more interesting is that Puscifer seem to be top of the bill.

I've seen many shows there. The stage of the Greek in LA is plenty big for Tool's stage setup, but yeah, Tool would sell out even quicker than this bill will. But this will sell out fast regardless.

Seating capacity = 5,801 seats.
Stage dimensions = 61 feet wide by 46 feet deep.

That looks like a sick place! My wife and I are for sure going. I am sure we will buy the VIP tickets. We did the VIP with Puscifer once and APC once and the seats couldn't have been better and sound check was fun. Sure it was $300 for the both of us but that guaranteed close seats (2nd row isle seat for APC) and gets you a poster for the show and other junk schwag so I think $300 is worth it. Seriously hoping Tool will get that album done though

Anybody know the pre-sale password for this event? If the rumor on FB is true about the VIP being around $249 I need to buy the regular tickets and hope to buy them on the pre-sale. Fucking $250! That's crazy. Well how much was the TOOL VIP? That was pricey but for TOOL seems a little more worth it.

Tool was $500? I did the puscifer 2010 VIP (wine tasting not meet and greet) i think it was $125 a ticket? It was worth the price, we literally got first row center, of probably their best tour.

I guess I'll bring up the elephant in the room. Not only will Puscifer and APC be there, but Paul D'Amour as well, and no Tool???? such a huge missed opportunity for a little reunion.
Not surprised Puscifer would be headlining, the show is often kind of a party atmosphere anyway.

Well, it is Danny's actual birthday. I could see this being more than they are stating. I have a conflict, but would probably go just on the possibility.

What leads you to believe Paul will be there, did I miss something?

IF (HUGE "if") there's some surprise in store I'm guessing it'd be like this:

Regular Failure set

Shortened APC set
Shortened (but longer than APC) Puscifer set

Encore: surprise Tool appearance, one song played. (Lateralus, probably)

And I've seen nothing about Paul being there either.

That VIP purchasing experience was a real bitch, took me almost an hour of refreshing to finally get in and get one. Frontgate can blow me.

Well got my pre-sale tickets. Section B so I am happy with that. Wish I could have got sec A but didn't get the pre-sale code till about 15 mins after 10. No way would I have paid $250 for the VIP. I was on the page at 10 for the VIP and saw the price and didn't think about it for a second. Pretty stoked and think it will be a great show.

You know, some people actually take care of themselves physically (and mentally) so there's no reason to think he'll be clutching his heart by the end of the night. Anyway, I wish I could be there.
