Tool has become one of the unicorn bands in prog rock as they barely play live due to the million projects Maynard James Keenan has like Puscifer, who’s about to released their new album Money Shot or the new autobiography he intends to write, but the band still has time to play every now and then as they will this coming Halloween at Monster Mash Festival in Tempe, AZ and you can actually meet the guys there if you just pay a few hundred bucks. $500 to be exact.
The VIP packaged offered at Tool’s website for the VIP includes the following:
– Admission for one (1) to VIP event*
– One (1) VIP merchandise pack with specialty items (to be picked up at the event)
VIP EVENT INFO:
– Live Q+A session with members of Tool
– Gallery of rare artwork and mementos
– Photo opportunity
– Tool’s festival merchandise available for purchase
If you think about other bands, it isn’t that much bang for your buck, considering there’s entire touring festivals like Summer Slaughter or Vans Warped Tour offering similar things for a third of that price, but Tool has that status to get away with it. If you think that the price also includes any sort of musical amenity, you can stop doing that as the band states clearly that they will not perform any song and this ticket will not grant you access to the sold-out Monster Mash show.
If you still want to go, head over their site here to get your VIP ticket and start writing down all the possible ways to ask them when will they release their next album. We’re sure they’ll love that.
