Re: 02.06.12 - Ft. Lauderdale

Hello to all you fellow Floridian Toolheads. This post is directed at a small but malignant fraction of the audience for the upcoming Fort Lauderdale/Sunrise/BankAtlantic Center show on 02/06/2012...It is a question: Can we all get through this concert without having to take out a fucking laser-pointer and blind the musicians who are attempting to perform their songs which we paid and traveled to experience live? Please?!? If you dislike the song being performed, perhaps you are at the wrong concert. You could always use this time to buy more beer or do some social networking from the mensroom while you sit down to urinate. If you're a real fan that will be attending this show and want it to be as good of an experience as possible-and not end prematurely-I'm urging you to forcefully disarm anyone near you that takes out a laser-pointer. They...these demonic shitheads, who are taking up space that some real Tool fans should be occupying...are immature malcontent sociopathic terrorists that do not belong at the show but they made their presence known at this very same venue back in 2007. Maybe they've matured since then? Nah, this is South Florida. Or, possibly someone new has come along to replace those special guests...maybe the sociopaths of 2007 are dismembered in a shallow grave somewhere not too far away from you and me if they exhibited the same respect and consideration for others in their daily lives as they did at an arena concert. And no, I don't buy into the lone asshole-coward theory. Where there's one, there's another. Sorry to rant...looks like I picked the wrong week to quit amphetamines. I haven't posted on here in years anyway. "DO NO HARM."

Re: 02.06.12 - Ft. Lauderdale

sec. 408 for my fiance and I. Yes, please lay off the laser pointers, I remember the Sunrise show of '07 and know exactly what ya mean. also, please refrain from singing along, we are all there to see/hear Tool, and don't need your fat drunken ass screaming in our ear the whole show. (no offense to fat drunk people, just referring to my personal experience of '07). I guess this is a spoiler free area, so, I wont reveal the spoils, I'll only say that i have seen Tool 3 other times on 3 other tours since 2001, but i absolutely can't fucking wait for this one. I envy those who are choosing to be surprised (how's that for suspense, gonna drive you nuts now huh, lol)

Re: 02.06.12 - Ft. Lauderdale

Will be in section 117. Anyone doing anything as far as a pre-show gathering or not? Also I know the area very, very well if anyone needs any help with anything, directions, etc.

Re: 02.06.12 - Ft. Lauderdale

I was wondering if you can park in the mall parking thats right by the venue instead of the venue parking which I assume you have to pay for, or is that frowned upon?

Also, Im coming in a day early so Im wondering what the nightlife is like in ft lauderdale? I might just take the drive to miami sunday night.

You used to be able to but I believe they have stopped it. I haven't been to a show at Bank Atlantic in a few months but friends have said they have started towing cars from people they have observed parking their cars and walking across the street to the shows. I've saved a shi.tload of money doing it. Parking fees at BA are insane !

You can park at the Mall, but it's $30, but can be free if you spend $30 at the Mall.

"For event-goers dead set on parking at the mall, there is a way to receive free parking at the mall: go shopping. Anyone who spends $30 or more at a retailer or restaurant on the day of an event will be reimbursed for the cost of parking."

It's $20 for parking at the BAC.

There is all kinds of nightlife going on in Ft Lauderdale and Miami, all depends on what your looking to get into.

Re: 02.06.12 - Ft. Lauderdale

I am so excited... I've never seen Tool... I've loved them since opiate... have had plenty of oppurtunities... just never saw them... it is going to be amazing... i got VIP tix for very cheap... have a good show guys... I've seen the setlist and unfortunately I would grade it at a B minus but its gonna fucking jam. Does anyone know about how long the opening act will be because I don't really care to see them at all. I'll just chief nugs in the parking lot until I hear Maynard start talking shit....

Re: 02.06.12 - Ft. Lauderdale

Hello everyone. I'm seeing Tool for the first time in Orlando. I see where Intronaut had been the opening band. I've read all the other threads and might have missed it, but can someone tell me who has been opening for them lately? Specifically, who you see? Thank you so very much in advance!

I am going to Orlando show also, and from what i have seen and heard a band called YOB, is finishing up the rest of the tour as the opening act. I checked them out on the internet and they seem like they are heavy metal. Hope that helps ya.

Re: 02.06.12 - Ft. Lauderdale

Please behave, everybody...that goes for me too. Assume that this is the final time you will get to see Tool live, at least in the South Florida market. Make the most of it, keep your cellphones in your pockets, show the band the respect and love they deserve and show everyone around you some respect too. " Do unto others..." (So go outside for your drunken conversations and don't drown out the vocalist with your vocals-no one paid to hear you sing, but its gonna happen regardless, I'm sure, and I very well may lose inhibition and do it also-this is my reminder to myself not to.) And be safe, take precautions with that illegal stuff in your possession. (Suitcase whatever you plan on bringing in if it means that much to you-we know security will be very tight, it isn't worth getting kicked out of the show for in the least bit, and try to go without a cigarette for the duration of the show or go out to the designated smoking areas-they exist at the BAC.) And to the scalpers outside the venue-show them the "love" they deserve also. Most of the people that really need to be reading this are probably marginal fans that don't visit this site, but I feel obligated to say all this...Have a good time everybody. I INSIST.

Re: 02.06.12 - Ft. Lauderdale

Awesome show. Maynard was very animated and Danny broke a drum head before Lateralus. Setlist was the same as the last few nights, replacing Ticks & Leeches with Sober. There were plenty of signed posters as well as non signed posters available after the show. Thanks for a great show boys, it was AWESOME !

Hooker With A Penis
Jambi
Stinkfist
Sober
Pushit

Re: 02.06.12 - Ft. Lauderdale

It was a great show but not mind blowing. They didn't play the songs I wanted to hear but it seemed like every time I went to smoke a ciggarrette they would play the intro to a song and then change it. Their was a moment during Shism when Maynard started belting it and I really new where I was. He has an amazing voice but it seemed as if they had the music too loud and the vocals were turned down a bit to me. There was a lot of good weed burning and I got hella stoned. All and all I'd give it an A minus... oh yea Maynard hid in the dark the whole show which I though was gay.
