lol $275

I'll be amazed if it's over $200, probably closer to $150

Haha unless you lather yourself in baby oil before you attend the show I would argue you're not participating in the FULL busty experience.

I'd assume tix will be around the $168 mark. Won't be cheap in any case but fuck it, been a while between shows. I excite!

Of course, and the obligatory flag too I'm guessing? ;)

My guesses:
  • Iron Maiden tickets are $180, so I'd expect Tool to be around the same
  • Likely to see dates spanning the weeks either side of 22-23 Feb. Reasoning: Rod Laver arena looks reasonably booked out up until the 20th of Feb
We'll know for sure on Friday.

Had a quick gander at flight costs last night, and looks like there's a few sales on at the moment for Feb. Hopefully they are still on sale when the dates arrive.

At this point I'm planning on seeing two shows if the schedule permits. Probably one show that lands on a weekend + another. I'm guessing probably Brisbane & Sydney

For reference the 2013 tour schedule was:
Sat 27 Apr, 2013 Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne - All Ages
Sun 28 Apr, 2013 Rod Laver Arena, Melbourne - All Ages
Wed 01 May, 2013 Adelaide Entertainment Centre Arena, Adelaide - All Ages
Fri 03 May, 2013 Qudos Bank Arena, Sydney - All Ages
Sat 04 May, 2013 Qudos Bank Arena, Sydney - All Ages
Mon 06 May, 2013 Brisbane Entertainment Centre, Brisbane - All Ages
Wed 08 May, 2013 Vector Arena, Auckland - All Ages
Thu 09 May, 2013 Vector Arena, Auckland - All Ages
Wouldn't surprise me if 2020 dates were something like:
  • Feb 17 & 18 Auckland
  • Feb 20 Brisbane
  • Feb 22 & 23 Sydney
  • Feb 25 Perth
  • Feb 27 & 28 Melbourne

Did the second shows in Sydney and Melbourne go on together do you recall or were they added?

Yep added pretty quickly. Agreed with Hboy , I see Melbourne & Sydney being the only shows in Aus that get multiples. Nice to know will know the dates this week , gives me time to make my flag and get the baby oil ready

I wonder if VIP will require you to have a Tool Army membership and if it does can you just purchase one the day as like the slack cunt I am.

Fair enough - aside from Rod Laver I haven't verified those guesses against other venue bookings.

I imagine TA members will get at least first crack at VIPs, but who knows - presales get cocked up so often it's anyone's guess.
