Got Tool Tickets!!!

Found out a couple weeks ago, while on vacation in Georgia, that Tool was going to be playing a show in Hamilton...Surpised the heck of my wife and I that they would play Hamilton and not Toronto...At any rate we had planned on trying to get some tickets, but they went on sale the same day as the century we were doing. The plan was to try and buy tickets, online, after the century. It was a good idea in theory, but there were two problems. First off was the fact that after 100 miles the last thing we wanted to do was sit in front of a computer, food was the number one thought. Second problem was tickets sold out in 20 minutes and so it really didn't matter. Fast forward a few weeks and we're home from vacation and Tool announces a second show for Hamilton. Tickets went on sale this past Friday at 5pm, odd time, and we were prepared. We had a few tense moments when my wife forgot her password to her ticketmaster account, but she got it in the end and we got the tickets!!! Yes Tool for the second time. Best part is the show is at the end of June so the wait won't be long.

Sears just lets me in their store for free to wander around the Craftsman area, drooling. They usually do not even make me mop up. There is more for your life at Sears.

i'd love to see them. last 2 tours i didn't because they're playing mega-center places. i prefer shows in smaller venues. they're playing 6/27 in chicago. i may try to go to it.

Less than a month now to the show here. We originally got pretty crappy seats, so I talked to my dad and he got us his company's box. I'm guessing none of their clients have ever heard of Tool.

I bet Tool puts on quite a show. I think I'm going to have to throw some Tool and A Perfect Circle CDs in the stereo when I get home.

Apparently, Tool gives one of the best concerts. From what I've heard Manard is up there with Bruce Springsteen and NIN.

Last time I saw too live was 1994 when they were touring for "undertow".

Fantastic show and it was the first show I had been to where the band sounded as good live as they did on their album.
