Ack - this is painful. Would like nothing more than to see Tool and Rammstein (especially Rammstein strangely enough). Not sure if I can afford another trip though...

Bring on the Gold Coast BDO!! Cannot wait! Deftones should get a main stage spot aswell. They've certainly done well to try and compete with Soundwave, but will hopefully also have a few other decent bands in the 2nd announcement aswell!
Rammstein were unreal last time they played here(certainly showed up LimpBizkit - haha)! As were Tool only a few yrs ago!

TK...let me assure you the $170 is worth it for Tool alone. I paid $160 for my ticket earlier this year and I don't regret it one bit. Best live show I've ever seen hands down bar NONE and I'm confident in saying that nothing will ever top it. Never. Having said that...the rest of the bill is meh at best. Rammstein I'm not crazy about but I'd like to see their live set. If Tool is headlining this...you can bet your a$$ there's gonna be a new cd on the way! :) *jizz's pants*

I'm not keen on the BDO so I'm hoping for a swag of side shows.

EsotericSurgery - its been mentioned on the BDO website that TOOL are releasing a new album, so i guess us down under might be the 1st to hear it live - nice change as we are always last!
Soundwave has taken most of the decent alternative acts touring down here so I'm not holding my breath for too many other decent bands, but fingers crossed!

For some reason I can never get into Plan B's solo material but the songs he did with Chase & Status are gold. Frankly I'd like to see Die Antwoord, they're bloody hilarious.

If you are a Tool fan, i'd probably recommend you fork out your $155 for a ticket, it may be your last chance to see them in Aus. Is a very high chance this will be there very last Aus/NZ tour, and it should co-incide with new album release, so hear that live first also.
Addtionally, Tool and Deftones same place same time, look out for Maynard featuring in Passenger, Chino butchers it live but with Maynard contributing as only Maynard can in the album release it would be something amazing !!!!!

don't get me wrong I love Tool, and I will not be missing them at the BDO auckland. But I am a little pi$$ed considering when they last played in auckland at the BDO in 06 maynard specifically said "see you later in the year, around december".....5 years later they return. Hopefully he joins Deftones to play Passenger to make up for it

Silly Head Maynard Doesn't Believe in a normal 12 month year for him its only 5 months and each month is equal to our 365 days a year thats why it take them (Tool) so long to put out a album...
