Earlier today, a poster on the Tool subreddit explained that a friend of theirs bumped into the band’s bassist Justin Chancellor around Sydney earlier this week. When Chancellor asked if the fan was coming to the show that night, he replied that he was unable to attend because he’s “a struggling muso”.
In response, Chancellor grabbed the musician’s name and sorted him out with a ticket for a show that evening.
The Reddit post includes a screenshot of a Facebook post by the fan in question.
“Met Justin Chancellor yesterday while walking around the quay area,” reads the post.
“I told him I didn’t have the chance to get a ticket this time round cos I’m a struggling muso lad… So he asked for my name and organised me a free one.”

Tool continue their tour tonight in Brisbane at the Entertainment Centre, before wrapping up their Aussie run with a pair of shows at Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne this weekend.
My mate met Justin Chancellor while walking around Sydney and said he was a massive fan, Justin asked if he was coming to the gig tonight and when he said he couldn’t because he’s a struggling muso, Justin made sure to grab his name and get him a ticket for the show. What a legend from ToolBand
