Tool Tour Update

Not long now until Tool hit the road for the first time in 2011 (and hopefully the last time before recording!).  As we all know, Tool are playing the Big Day Out tour here in Australia in New Zealand, which also includes a couple of sideshows in Melbourne and Brisbane.  As an added bonus Tool will be playing a show in Hawaii the week before this tour.  Support band for… Read More »Tool Tour Update

NZ Tour Rumours

Dan emailed me today that he read in a recent copy of the New Zealand music Magazine Rip It Up: I was reading in the latest Rip It Up (NZ music mag) that reporter David Farrier happened to be on the same flight as Tool when he went to one of their shows in the States towards the end of the touring. He asked them the obvious question: “When will… Read More »NZ Tour Rumours

I was basking in the Sydney sun at the Big Day Out preparing for the second of two Tool shows. It seems so long ago…

Last 10,000 Days show?

Both the Tool Hotline and a couple of reviews on Toolnavy are saying that Maynard announced at the last Las Vegas show that it would be the last one for the 10,000 Days tour.  Looks like we may not get another Tool tour down under after all, unless he was just talking about the US. On a brighter note, here’s another one of those posters courtesy of CP:

Tool in Australia/NZ in March?

There’s been much discussion of Tool‘s recently announced US West Coast tour on Fourtheye, and in particular what this means for the promised Australian and New Zealand tour.  According to Cognizant: I was logging in today to see what had been heard about the place as my mate who does some work for the Events Centre here in Wellington (and has been keeping me in the loop) sent me an… Read More »Tool in Australia/NZ in March?

Poll Results: Your plans for the upcoming Australian Tour?

Last week I asked what you guys planned on doing for the next Australian tour.  I know that in January many of you saw more than on show, some travelled around Australia, while others saw both the Big Day Out show and a sideshow.  Given that Tool are reportedly going to tour second time this year, how many shows do you plan on catching this time around? Well, most of… Read More »Poll Results: Your plans for the upcoming Australian Tour?

Aussie dates coming soon?

Auroboros from Toolarmy emailed me today, to tell me that his Mum tells him that Tool have been booked by Frontier Touring and will be playing in Melbourne on the 9th or 10th of December.  The dates sound about right based on Maynard‘s comments earlier this year, but I guess we’ll have to wait and see as to how accurate this rumour is…..
