When you put it that way, I can see your point (other douchebags, take note).
I've seen this same set list twice, with other good songs thrown in to boot (Wings, Right In Two, The Pot), so I probably would have to really think long & hard about spending eighty bucks to see them at Lolla. Luckily, the decision is being made for me because I've never seen Giant Squid or Grayceon, and I've been dying to do so for a couple of years now. No brainer for me.
But Tool live is always
an awesome experience. I will stick by that statement until the day I die. Anybody who says that seeing them in general is a waste of money has either never sen them live and doesn't know what the hell they are talking about (in which case they should just read and move on, and resist that urge to offer their uninformed opinion), or is just flapping their stupid lips for the sake of being disagreeable because they think it makes them look smart to rip on something that many other people obviously like a great deal. To those of you who fit this decscription (and you know who you are), just shut your pieholes and take your candy asses to the mall where you can bitch about all the things you apparently hate to other malcontent idiots who are willing to listen to you.
That's all I'm saying. Rant concluded.
