Intronaut has a tour announcement Thursday, so it could be support on this since they played a couple of dates before

SF date is the same day as BTBAM/Deafheaven/Intronaut is in Oakland, so Intronaut isn't on the Tool tour.

As cool as it would be to see Tool, I think I'm gonna go to BTBAM/Deafheaven/Intronaut instead. Paying far less to see 3 bands I live as opposed to a lot to seeing one band that I do love, but don't listen to often.

Yeah seems like the consensus for the regular showgoer is that they put on a great show, but it's not worth the outrageous ticket price.

Which is why I never seen them. I don't wanna spend that much on them.

To be fair, if it's a tour there's a 75% chance Battlecross is on it

I love Tool (hence my usename!) but I don't know if I'd spend the money to see them live again. The last 2 tours were a waste - completely "phoned in" performances from the band, same old setlist, and only a little more than an hour all for $95. Meh.

This. The only way I'd go see Tool is if I knew we were getting a bunch of new material. Seeing as how it's been a century since there was a new Tool album, there's no guarantee of that. I'll let all the Bro's waste their money on this one instead.

seen tool 8 times, 4 of those since the release of the last album, and the last was probably one of the overall best times, visually, sound quality, and performance wise.

such little variation to the setlist does suck, but to be fair, its not like they are just 4 dudes standing on stage playing songs, its a whole production that surely takes a lot of time and money to alter significantly. not to mention, its not like they are bringing that same show to the exact same cities/venues 4 or 5 times over, they generally are very good about hitting up every possible area for them to play on a given album cycle. (if we can even call this an album cycle at this point hah)

The 2x I saw them they were fantastic. The only downer was the fact the first time I saw them it was heavier on 10,000 Days songs. It's not like anybody in the band is going to be running around like Dillinger Escape Plan or something. That's just not what the band has ever done. Idk why this is a big deal now. Would there be as much complaining if they would have released a new album by now?

Dunno, they'll probably do a tour with the reunited Fleetwood Mac.

I think it would be awesome if Tool got rid of all the visuals -- just totally stripped it down and played a fucking rock show. I'd go see that. I know they've been doing what they've been doing for a long time now and it's probably not about to change, but I'm so bored with it. I think I've seen them 4 times and that's enough for me.

I saw them twice and that's enough for me. They were really good but I don't like them enough to spend the money again. Like I mentioned before, I don't like the way Maynard stands at the back of the stage all night, very irritating. And I don't need another explanation as to why he stands in the same spot for the whole show. Another thing is his vocals are somewhat weak in a live setting. Definitely worth checking out if you haven't seen them though.

I am a huge Tool fan and have been/will be for a long time. Seen them 7 times now and I was lucky enuff to see them do a small venue show back for the Undertow tour. Place held about 300 people at a University here in Ottawa. Was the first time I seen them and it was just phenominal!! Sold out show and it was so cramped and fricking hot in there!!

Funny thing...I had a dream like this just last night. Guess it was seeing the dates announced that triggered it.:eyes: They played a small bar here and had no light show or anything. Very odd dream as Maynard was openly talking to people (which never happens), Justin and Adam were walking around the bar chatting people up and Danny was his own roady and had to strip down his kit. Dunno what I smoked before going to bed LOL :bliss:

There was a weird sense of hostility on the last tour. Between the school of fish t-shirts and opening with "Hooker With a Penis", it was evident at least Maynard was pissed. Internal pressure, maybe? With that said, the setlist was fantastic. "HWAP", "Pushit" and either "Sober" or "Parabola"? I didn't regret paying the $95 and would gladly do it again.

This is a must see show for me. I wish I could have seen them earlier but I couldn't. Please don't do lollapalooza ever again.

Ha! That's awesome. I have buddy (about 5 years older than me) who saw Tool on the same tour while he was going to Western. He said it was the most insane show he's ever seen. I'd love to be able to say that!

Yeah the setlist for my two shows was the same but hearing HWAP, Ticks, and Pushit was great. I could go without hearing Schism ever again though, never been a big fan of that song.

The show I caught on the Lateralus tour was one of the best shows I've ever seen. Every "song" off the album minus Ticks and Leeches ftw.

THIS. I have yet to see them and if I do, I don't want to be three football fields away from them at an extremely jacked price. I really hope they come to Milwaukee or Chicago this year for their own show.

Damn. One of my favorite bands ever and they might have the worst fan base on the planet. The crowd has come close to ruining two previous Tool shows for me. And usually too short of a setlist for what tickets cost.

Do they ever debut new material live before the record is released?

Rarely full songs, but the noodling they do in between tracks usually turns out to be stuff they're working on.

There will be. Sometime in 2033 on the "40th Anniversary/No New Album For 27 Years" tour.

Beat me to it. They never debut new songs in full before an album drops, but they like to tease new material between songs.

Of course there will. In fact, you'll probably see them swing by at least twice in the next 18 months or so. They typically tour for a year or two when a new album comes out - and since this hiatus is the longest yet, who knows how long they'll tour. There'll be multiple legs of the same tour for the next two years at least, and they surely aren't going to avoid NY.

Ohio might be another story. It's sad to say it, but the word on the street seems to be that Cleveburg's music scene is dead. We're getting fewer and fewer shows every year. Hard to believe the site of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame is starting to be considered a shitty place for concerts. :(
