Re: 2007/03/15-16 - Las Vegas, NV - The Pearl

Was reading this article about Van Halen coming to Vegas and noticed that nice little word "TOOL" in there so immediately came here to post, when I saw the dates already had a thread. NICE!!! Here's the offending article that got my attention about halfway through:

Van Halen reunion tour to kick off in Las Vegas
A Van Halen reunion tour, with David Lee Roth back in the fold after 22 years, is in the works, with a Las Vegas launch looking good. A late April date at the Palms' new venue, The Pearl, is "99 percent" likely, a source said. It would be the latest coup for Palms owner George Maloof, who will open the 2,500-seat venue with a lineup that includes Tool, Evanescence, Gwen Stefani along with Van Halen, all in the first month. Many critics consider Van Halen the greatest party-metal rock band of all time.

Re: 2007/03/15-16 - Las Vegas, NV - The Pearl

sound should be excellent in this brand new venue since it was designed and built specifically for concerts, not sporting events. will be worth every dollar (or hundreds, I'm sure) to go see them here. I'll be there both nights....can't wait!

My interest is warming up for this show. But yea, what's the deal with tickets? 2500 seats? Tool? Are you shiatin me? Hmm, I am gonna try. But I got a feeling like luck would fall easier on that Thursday date than Friday.

Re: 2007/03/15-16 - Las Vegas, NV - The Pearl

Yeah, I'll be out there that week/weekend on vacation, and I was excited as hell when I heard Tool will be there Thursday and Friday, and then I heard where they're playing only holds 2,500. I'd like to see both shows but looks like I better just concentrate on getting tickets for one!! I'd rather go Friday, but it sounds like that's when everyone wants to go, so maybe it will be easier getting tickets for Thursday.........I'm hoping I can at least see one show!

Anyone interested in going in on a pair of tickets for Friday at $180 per? I know that shit sucks, but it's the best I've found from brokers yet and I only need one.

I'd pay $180 for two. But tix have not gone on sale yet. So why line up for brokers beforehand? I am not naive or anything and I know that price could end up being right. But unless said broker has tickets in hand, which they don't, I am skeptical.

I know, and you're probably right, but I'd hate to miss this show.

Re: 2007/03/15-16 - Las Vegas, NV - The Pearl

Living in Vegas and working for the newspaper, I've seen ads and articles that talk about acts playing in March, such as the Evenescense tour (big ad in the paper for tickets going on sale with Palms and Pearl logos on the ad). Whatever Gwen stefani article you read is not correct. I've been seeing things for a few weeks now. Tool will be there at said date.

I'd be willing to bet that we will see some sort of live footage from these shows, The Palms has a recording studio and with this new theater they have the ability to record all the live concerts thru the studio.

Here's a recent link with Danny saying to expect some live DVD's:

Re: 2007/03/15-16 - Las Vegas, NV - The Pearl

From what I've read, Gwen Stefani is still the "official" Grand-Opening show; however, Tool and Evanescence/Chevelle have dates prior to Stefani. I've heard about other venues doing this as well, not necesarily having bands play first to "try-out" the venue, but rather picking one headliner as the so-called "Official" Grand Opening, even if that show isn't actually the very first show played there. Anyways, I'm hoping to get tickets for Vegas........I've already had my trip planned since December, and now that Tool is going to be there makes it even better! Now hopefully we'll be able to get tix through ticketmaster at "face"; otherwise we'll be having to deal with the ticket brokers.......

Re: 2007/03/15-16 - Las Vegas, NV - The Pearl

I have yet to find this date posted on Ticketmaster. I've emailed them and they have no idea. I have no luck reaching anyone at the Pearl.

I've got a feeling that this concert is very reserved. If anyone sees this listed on Ticketmaster, please let me know. Odd.

Just a guess, but they're probably not Ticketmaster tickets - one can only hope. But they do exist:

Re: 2007/03/15-16 - Las Vegas, NV - The Pearl

Why use Ticketmaster for every other date but not Vegas? I thought maybe it was something the Pearl did, but their other dates are on Ticketmaster.

Thanks for the link.

Actually, the don't exist. Stubhub, like a lot of brokers, has a line in on tickets they know they will get, so they advertise early. But tickets have not been printed yet. And Ticketmaster will almost certainly have them since it's part of the deal when signing a band like Tool to play your venue. At least, that's how I understand it. But worst case scenario is the venue themselves would sell tickets.

yeah, you're probably right.

I've made it a point to attend all the small-venue shows in my area, but that Vegas show seems WAY elite.

See ya in Reno...

Re: 2007/03/15-16 - Las Vegas, NV - The Pearl

Meh- I do the LA-Vegas drive all the time. Piece o cake! Just got to time it right.

Speaking of which- Friday show may seem like the more 'desirable' of the two shows for people going from So CA, but not when you think about it. First, traffic up on a Friday will be an unholy nightmare the likes of which you will be sorry you ever saw. Also, the cost for hotels jumps dramatically between Thursday and Friday nights in Vegas.

So I would say if you are going from So CA just to see Tool, and you are not doing an extended stay in Vegas (just overnight after the show). Then Thursday will be the better choice. Not to mention that getting tickets for Thursday will probably be a bit easier on the wallet.

All this is moot if you are going to both shows though!

the 16th is my bday as well, chiller. it's during the last spring break i'll ever have, so i'm definitely hoping to luck out saturday morning and get some tickets. if so the hunt for the cheapest flights to vegas begins.

Re: 2007/03/15-16 - Las Vegas, NV - The Pearl

Hey, I talked to a lady at The palms today and she said the reason the tickets are not showing on ticketmaster yet is that the show(s) are not set in stone for sure. She wasn't much help except for telling me that. I live in SLC Utah and when they came in Aug there was a big mele in the front and Maynard almost left the stage (he was pissed bad) he told everyone he was leaving unless everyone chilled and at the end of the shoe he didn't say "see ya next (whenever) like he usually does. I HAVE TO GO TO THIS SHOW!!!! Any help u guys can give me for tickets would be greatly appreciated. If they come.
