TOOL

PRESALE IS AT 12PM THURSDAY 14TH FEB!!  YOU NEED TO BE A FRONTIER TOURING MEMBER WHICH YOU CAN JOIN AT: http://www.frontiertouring.com/index.php?action=register

 

Tool will be back in Australia this April and May to play a handful of massive arena shows.

The visit will give some respite to fans holding out for a new album from the prog-rock giants - it's been 7 years since their last effort 10,000 Days.

Although details surrounding the follow up record have been typically mysterious, the Australian tour press release notes the band will be "taking time from recording their highly anticipated fifth studio album" to fly to Australia, New Zealand and Japan for shows towards the middle of the year.

The record is expected sometime in 2013 and the band has promised Australian fans they'll be some of the first in the world to hear their new material at the shows.

For frontman Maynard James Keenan, Tool will be the third band he's fronted in Australia this year. He's other projects A Perfect Circle and Puscifer are due in the country in just a couple of weeks for Soundwave.

All shows are all ages

General tickets released from 9am local time Tuesday February 19.

    Not sure if anyone else got an email from allphones arena events yesterday, but the one I got seemed to hint that phones with cameras are prohibited at the show tomorrow... just called them and they said you can have a phone just as long as you don't use it to film anything... phew :-)

    Just noticed my ticket (bought off eBay) is for crappy B reserve seating. Anyone else in the B zone or do you all have tickets that are actually good?

      After their recent Alt+J per-sale fiasco they admitted that TARO normally works as a presale password. I'll use my Frontier Password and then test that one out.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
