    Sorry for the lack of updates for LORD shows - got caught up with the album and didn't get a chance to do any website updates.

    All of the confirmed shows can be (and should be) found here: http://www.lord.net.au/tour/tour-dates/

    Better yet, there's one click adds to iCal or Google Calendar right from the dates list. You can also see setlists of past shows here: http://www.lord.net.au/tour/setlists/

    appears BOC will be returning to Oz after fuck knows how long.

    Not many dates and seemed to have slipped under the radar a bit, maybe focusing on older fans who are more cashed up.
    thanks to Gore for originally losing his 'nana over this on FB.

    Rumour is that a new Tool album is indeed on the way!

    Tickets will be from $105-$135

    Not sure if I'll make it, as its the day after Adrian Edmonston and the Bad Shepherds but will try.

    MUNICIPAL WASTE will be touring in June.

    Dates to be announced later this month.

    Also the EXTREME tour has been "postponed" due to "scheduling conflicts".

    I contacted the promo company to confirm the tour with no reply. No press release has been released.

    I get the impression this tour will flop.

    Yeah my thoughts exactly. Everyone has to start at some time I guess, but I wouldn't be rushing to buy tickets!

    And that tour poster.... My three year old could design better.

    "Sasquatch will be performing solo at these dates…ripping some unreal guitar solos."

    Seriously? What's the point of that?

    $200 meet and greet tickets, no supports named, the website has a slideshow of other people's events under its flash banner giving the impression that they're the promoters of it, and the bluepalmtouringcompany.com domain was registered less than a month ago.

    I'd like to give these guys the benefit of the doubt - and I DO sincerely wish them the best if they are indeed legit, we need good quality promoters - but I honestly expect to hear of a "postponement" at the very least sometime soon.

    Didn't Lita get massived fucked over by a promoter on an Aussie tour many years ago and you and some others stepped in to help, LT?
    Or am I getting confused again?

    Either way, seems that she doesn't have much luck with Aussie promoters and her own management might want to look at themselves if things go the proverbial "tits up" on this tour.

    This is another tour I'd watch out for. Regardless of the line up.

    It is to expensive and the promoter of Stone Music has been challenged by Andrew McManus. McManus says the tour will most likely flop. This is due to the Stone Music having no credentials in the Australian music scene or possibly the funds to pay for Van Halen and anyone else on the line-up.

    After what happened with Van Halen and Soundwave Revolution, I doubt they'd be playing here unless they're 1000% confirmed and paid well in advance.

    In regards to the Lita Ford tour. All promoters send out press releases so the general public know the event is on. There has been shit all done to promote this tour on their behalf which leads me to believe they have no idea what they're doing or relying on word of mouth to sell tickets...and yes, the tour poster looks like garbage.

    $200 for a meet and greet is fucked beyond belief. No offense to the general demographic who listen to Lita Ford, but majority would be bogans who can't even afford to pay for their alcohol and or cigarette addiction. Why take a massive dump on their respected chests with such a ludicrous price tag?

    Seriously. What the fuck?!? These promoters need to be punched in the dick several times. That Oceanic Sharks wanker is a prime example.

    It's easy to sell something to the general public who aren't weary or cautious of promoters like this. The public get stars in their eyes with some of the names that get mentioned on line ups, but forget how ridiculously expensive it is to pay for visas, accommodation and additional costs, moreso in Australia.

    There seriously needs to be music ombudsmen who control how bands come into Australia. If you're going to put on a tour. For fuck sake do it right!
