Re: General Tool tour questions / discussion (merged)

Ticketwest is a piece of crap for the Colorado Springs show...I couldnt get thru on the phone for an hour after hitting redial on TWO PHONES to 2 different phone numbers and the online site for purchasing tickets didnt work either. The automated line was a piece of shit cuz it couldnt understand that I was CLEARLY saying Tool and then when it would finally get my answer it said i would send me to a service rep then which i got a frigging busy signal. Finally got to an operator an hour later and to section 209 uppper level which i was told was Best available so I took them only to find out a bit later that there were still better seats for sale.

Re: General Tool tour questions / discussion (merged)

It's nice that someone laughed at my question, but that wasn't the answer I was looking for. I'll ask again:

How many times does Tool change what they play at shows during a tour? I may be able to get to a couple different shows, and I wanted to space them out so I could see something different each time.

On the first leg, they typically only changed a song or two from night to night, if at all. They added Wings 1&2 about mid-way through the tour and dropped Sober to make room for that, iirc.

Expect to see most of 10,000 Days performed is about the only guarantee you can get. And it's possible if you see two shows that you will end up seeing two identical sets (although I saw 5 shows on the first leg and saw at least one different/new song each time).

Edit- actually both LA shows had the same set list only different orders and minus one song the second night (Right In Two)

Not much. September 2006 through February 2007 they pretty much played the same material, occaisionally in a different order and sometimes they'd add or drop a song but they haven't had much in the way of variety this tour. Check the tour section out and you can see their sets.

Re: General Tool tour questions / discussion (merged)

Can anyone tell me approximately how far in advance tickets will go on sale though the appropriate outlets....ie Ticketmaster?? I'm looking at the Mpls/St Paul show on June 26th. Is there like a general rule when they go on sale? I just checked now on ticketmaster.com and no dice yet.

Gracias mi amigos!

Re: General Tool tour questions / discussion (merged)

Im thinking of just camping out this tour when tickets go on sale and using ticketmaster for the other show (Detroit and Grand Rapids shows). Prob get better seats by camping out eh? Also, if tickets go on sale at 10am, do u think 6-8pm would be early enought o get front/close to front row? Im willing to make a 24 hour camp if i have to if you thinkg that's what it'll take.

Camping for tickets is a thing of the past. What you need to do is show up an hour early and bring a crew with you as they will do a lottery system for tickets.

EDIT: Sorry, maybe I misunderstood you. If your talking about camping at the actual venue then you may be right, not sure. But I think most places try to avoid camping for tix, thus doing the lottery.

I asked my son (age 10) if he wanted to go seen them in Albuquerque (we'd seen them in Phoenix last fall). "Will they play any new songs, Dad?" he asked.

"Probably not, " I said. "Maybe one or two."

"Naw, that's OK."

My son, the jaded tool fan.

If Blair doesn't know about it, chances are it won't be put on the site.

Same thing happened to me, after about 30 minutes of the frustrating Ticketswest experience, I gave up. Went back at 11:45am local (almost 2 hrs after onsale time), tried and got a ticket on the side. Decided to see if I could get something more straight on, and got a slightly better seat. Tried a 3rd time... got a floor ticket. I'm sure it helped that I'm enough of a loser to only have the need to buy 1 ticket, haha.

This is not true. When the first round of dates went onsale, I was on right the second they went onsale. It was an automatic 25 minute wait. I was shocked that I still got decent seats. Floor was gone.

What he meant is that Ticketmaster doesn't crash. It can handle all requests, regardless of amount of waiting time customers have to endure.

Yeah ticketmaster can handle the requests. I totally hate the 2 minute system they have, though. I had one little thing fucked up when I filled it out the first time, and I lost 6 fucking floor-seats in section 4. I was so happy that I had managed to pull off the six floor seats then my world came crashing down when it was like "You fucked up on some blank, go back and waste some more time." Fuck YOU ticketmaster!

One thing you absolutely must do with Ticketbastard is have your account created and filled out in advance and be logged in before you look for tickets.

I can never rememeber my damn username and password. Very nerve wracking to watch the seconds tick by and the number of tries get used up as I enter various combos of names and passwords. Last time I just said fuckit and went to TM in a grocery store near my house and stood line with all the other tool crowd. Scoced some decent seats for Albuquerque just off the floor and close to a beer stand.

Ahh yes, those are Captcha codes. A great idea that works nicely most of the time, but some sites have it poorly executed.

Same thing happened to me.. I bought my ticket for Greenville the morning they came out, the first time I tried to get in I got right through, and had a ticket in the center of the 1st floor section, 15 rows back. I try to log into my account and ticketmaster decides to buttfuck me and take my ticket.

You have to live within a certain distance of the venue, and the ToolArmy staff will approach you with presale info. You do not get your pick of anything.

The http://www.toolband.com/tour/index.html tour page is currently a lot more comfortable too look at than this one.

Re: General Tool tour questions / discussion (merged)

I'm starting to get nervous about the northwest dates not being posted. Tour is scheduled on their site into july and nothing yet... Didn't I read they are gonna be in Europe by august?

on a side note, has anybody noticed that ozzfest has pretty much crap for bands this year?
