Looks like they're sticking with the standard fair. All songs that have been on the last couple of tours thus far. There's only been one show, but it does seem they're going heavier as opposed to a lot of the more ambient type stuff.

I actually came here to post a video of Lateralus, but since you'll be seeing it live for the first time in a few nights I'll not spoil anything.

Alright.  Looking forward to the newest Tool. 10,000 Days has one of my all-time favorite songs on it, Intension which was Amazing live when I saw them

I believe this more than I believe Metallica are writing.


The Tool news whilst slow has at least been fairly consistent..

" we're writing....we're working on the epic....we're still writing...Maynard hasn't written any vocals yet....the songs are done...waiting for maynard....finished...."

With Metallica it's been..

" We've got 5 or 6 songs finished.....album starts in 2011....we've been in the studio writing for several weeks in 2013....we don't have any finished songs yet.....we haven't started writing yet.....new song in March....We haven't written a new song yet..."

They've actually played a couple of shows already and the setlists can be found at setlist.fm.

Tool have unnecessarily long gaps between their album releases, but at least haven't made the fans wait for over 20 years like My Bloody Valentine did after Loveless :P

But in the case of My Bloody Valentine, they ACTUALLY broke up in between Loveless and MBV. In Tool's case, they were just on hiatus in between album cycles.

I think Metallica will do something.  They are certainly more active and have more of a chance of getting something out way before Tool IMO.

While it's true that Metallica take their sweet time with new albums, at least they stay busy and put out other stuff.

In some ways I'm glad that bands like Mastodon, Therapy? and Dream Theater need to tour / record / tour / record / tour record.

It almost guarantees new music regularly.  If DT13 suddenly sold 30 million copies - they might start to get lazy and complacent too.


Plus - Therapy? and DT have such small gaps between releasing an album / touring / getting back into the writing process - that if you don't like one album -

- you don't have *that* long to wait until the next one.

If you didn't like "Reload" - you had to wait a further 6 years to get "St. Anger" and then another 5 for "Death Magnetic" and now another 6 years and counting...

And if you didn't like " 10,000 Days " back in 2006 well ... Bad luck  :biggrin:

Looks like the folks up in Portland got 3rd Eye instead of Hooker with a Penis. Big improvement. Kind of makes me wish I were seeing both Texas shows now instead of just one.

If I ever get the chance to see Tool live and they play Third Eye it would probably go down as one of my greatest live concert experiences ever. The live version on Salival is amazing.

I saw them open with Third Eye in 1997.  Shitty place to see them.  The sound was terrible at this college in Fitchburg, Ma.

I saw them live once and thought it was pretty great. We were all the way in the back of the arena so we could barely even see the band, but the setlist was great and the whole lighting/production was amazing.

I didn't mean they put on a shitty show but the fact that at least 20 minutes of the roughly 2 hour set was needlessly wasted with lengthy synth intros/segues that were way bland compared to their actual songs was fucking infuriating since it basically meant I paid $60 for barely more than 90 minutes of actual songs and they didn't play anything from before Ænima. Those extra 20 minutes would've been at least 3 songs.

I've heard that their shows take the focus away from the band, and really are more about "the art of the spectacle"...  I think that sounds like an awesome concept that no one (save Pink Floyd) has really tried.    Would you guys say that's an accurate description of a Tool show?

The spectacle of it had a floyd vibe, but that I had no problem with. My issue was with Maynard phoning it in big time. At least he did with my show. It was like he didn't even want to be there.

And he was not like that back in 2000 when I saw him with APC. With that show he had mammoth stage presense and held the audience in his hand.

All in all, I was pretty let down by seeing Tool, but it was on my concert to do list, so what evs. I won't be seeing them again though.

That is surprising to me that Maynard was EVER a big time front man, because the stuff I've heard is that he has always had a tendency to shy away from the spotlight in concert....to the point of sometimes singing the entire show in the shadows behind the drumkit.   (thus, sticking to the idea of making a Tool concert more about the complete package of the music and spectacle rather than the actual musicians in the band)

I'm only going off what I've heard described to me.

...to the point of sometimes singing the entire show in the shadows behind the drumkit.

That's what he's been doing for all of the recent tours. He says it allows him to focus on his singing more, and to allow the other three guys to get more attention.
...in my opinion
