Discuss pre-show matters. A review thread will open upon completion.

Re: 01.25.12 - Toronto, ON

Hi - I bought tix from Ticketmaster and got section FLR C, row 12, seats 25-26. Does this mean Floor tickets? Are these good? I was hoping to get seats in section 109 or 118. Thanks!

I think they are the 12 row on the floor in the seated floor section. I think there is a "pit" section in front of that according to seating chart but not sure.

It looks like the floor isn't GA after all.

If you want 118 seats I would trade my tix for those :)

Re: 01.25.12 - Toronto, ON

Seated floors for this show? Really?

This will be the 10th time seeing Tool... and the only other time there's been seats ONLY is at the Hummingbird centre in 2006.

Can anyone confirm if this is the case? I bought 3 separate floor tickets with the idea that it would be General Admission... now I'm concerned that my friends and I will be scattered in seated floors.

Yeah, it looks like all the shows are assigned floor seats this time around. Bummer.

Re: 01.25.12 - Toronto, ON

A handful of excellent Toronto lower bowl tickets just went up for sale!

http://www.ticketmaster.ca/event/100...&minorcatid=60

EDIT: Looks like they are all American Express Front of the Line tickets. You may need an AMEX card to purchase the available seats.

Floor left, row 30 for me. Still can't believe it's a seated only show. Not that anyone will be sitting down anyway.

I'm moving to Toronto next week, I don't know the area at all, so any location suggestions would be welcome :)

TDN Toronto Preshow Meetup:

Anywhere from 4PM-6PM at the Esplanade. It's a 5 minute walk from the Air Canada Centre. Scotland Yard Pub and the Bier Market are right beside each other.

That's because the venue sold out to scalpers and posers who are going to spend the entire night texting.

Re: 01.25.12 - Toronto, ON

I have a ticket. I just feel a lot of fans got shut out due to bad advertising and how ticket selling occurrs these days. Luckily I found out about this and London. I know a lot of people who found out about these shows a few days after they went on sale.

Re: 01.25.12 - Toronto, ON

I agree with Jayde, had a friend not mentioned they'd heard about it on the Edge, I wouldn't have known. It hasn't been advertised on the music news sites that I frequent...and I don't listen to the radio much. Not as brutal as Radiohead's "we're touring, and tickets go on sale tomorrow morning" announcement history...but not surprised a lot of people are unaware

I'll be there for 5PM. Will stay there for a few hours until we head over to the show.

I will be bringing a few friends as well. Should be a good time.

Can people please confirm if they plan on attending so I have any idea of what to expect/reserve an area at the bar.

Re: 01.25.12 - Toronto, ON

Looking for a single ticket for the Toronto show for myself. This will be Tool #9 for me and I am getting a little fussy. If you have a spare ticket in 108, 109, 118, 119 or first 10 rows on the floor...pm me or send email to kevindust@rogers.com

Re: 01.25.12 - Toronto, ON

Opinions: My buddy isn't able to make it, so I currently have 2 tix in sec 119 row 18 (or somewhere close to this, it's my buddy who's giving me the tix). I'm considering using that link from above and purchasing a ticket on the floor row 6 for like $132. I can't make up my mind...sell both the 119's and pick up a single on the floor...or keep the 119 and sell the single beside me??? I'm a (crappy) bass player, so it'd be nice to watch Justin from row 5...but I just have no idea what to do

Re: 01.25.12 - Toronto, ON

My girlfriend is selling some tickets. She's also posted them on Craigslist and Kijiji but thought I'd mention it here too.

She's got 4 in a row, Front row in Section 303
and a pair, 8th row in Section 107.

PM if interested.

Re: 01.25.12 - Toronto, ON

Hi everyone, the Toronto show will be my first Tool show, been a fan since Opiate but I live on the east coast of Canada and they've never been past Montreal, so this time I'm making the trip, Tool has been on my concert "bucket list" for years now.
How is the Air Canada Centre for concerts? I'm in section 118, near the back of the lower bowl, are these decent seats? Seems kind of side on to the stage but I mainly went with lower bowl as my girlfriend is quite short and every time we see a band, someone stands right in front of her, so at least we will get to see. Anyways, enough babbling, 7 more days!!

Re: 01.25.12 - Toronto, ON

Looks like they opened up sec 111, 116, 312, 318 but they sold out as well. (I recall those sections being greyed out the first time I checked for tickets on the TM site.)

I got my ticket, row 3 on the left section floor, right in front of Adam. I paid more than face value but less than double. I apologize to everyone, I feel a little dirty for supporting the vacuus ticket distribution system, but I wasn't going to miss the show or see it from the last row. I figured I might as well pony up and go all in. Luckily, I found some travelling partners so the gas and hotel costs will be split 4 ways. You Toronto fans are lucky, this your 4th show since 10,000 Days, plus the 2 Hamilton dates. Ottawa hasn't seen Tool since 2002.

All of my previous 8 shows have been in different venues, the ACC is the first repeat for me.

Awesome to hear you're coming down. Feel free to drop by the pre-show meeting if you have time. Scroll up for the details.

Regarding the ACC, I've never seen Tool play there; however, from my experience of other shows, it's a pretty solid venue.

Tool at the ACC in 2001 is not only the best Tool show of the 8 I have been to but the best show I have ever seen by any band.

Re: 01.25.12 - Toronto, ON

My buddy dropped out and I have a single ticket beside me in sec 118 row 18 or something like that (my roomate bought the tickets and had to drop out...I *think* that's the correct location though). Looking for face value for the single seat. Would also give up the pair if I found a decent single on the floor.

2002 in Hamilton they played H. and Triad as well. Those were the days.

Can't wait for this next show. It feels like a new beginning for Tool, finally revisiting some old tunes and opening up the song library for others who haven't experienced more than the repetitive 2006 era shows.

Re: 01.25.12 - Toronto, ON

I'll be there, Section 104. Was there in '01, and alt. Pushit was incredible, as was Reflection. I think I had roughly the same section back then, too. Sound, from what I recall was quite good, and you figure they can only make it better over time.

I was at Copps as well in '02(?), and was against the railing in GA floor. H. was more awesome than you can ever imagine. It was too close though, I have no intentions of ever seeing Tool that close again. The sound isn't centred unless you are (I wasn't) and with their current visuals, i'd miss it all.

My hopes were to see Third Eye Wednesday, and until I saw they shook up the setlist last night, I figured no chance. Guess we'll see!

Might try and make it to the pre-drink for a pre-drink if we have time.
