I know there's probably threads like this all over here but if you are trying to find tours to book, where do you get most of your news? Or how do you find stuff early....sorry for being a noob but :) just trying to support bands.

Blabbermouth, but that's where full tour schedules are posted once the tour is already scheduled. If you're actually booking bands and not saying 'plz come to (insert your hometown)', I would contact bands or managers individually so that when they are booking tours, they'll call you if they plan on coming through your area.

1. Here.
2. Other metal sites, like Blabbermouth, metalstorm, etc.
3. Last.fm
4. Specific venue websites
5. Sometimes a band will announce something on Twitter.

Heard so much about that guy. He sounds like the best promoter ever. Just looking at how many shows he's able to land... Goddamn. My city needs a guy like him.

If you're trying to book tours as a promoter or as a band, you'll get nothing from the internet. You need to be ahead of the net, contacting the promoters/venues/tour managers/bands yourself.

Or, if you're a band, get a booking agency.
