Tool -- Toledo, OH -- January 24th, 2012
Venue: Huntington Center
This was my first time seeing Tool. Unfortunately it has taken me this long to see them, but that is all in the past now. This was one of my top five concert experiences of all time!
Some local Detroit band opened. Didn't sit and watch. Intronaut went on shortly after and murdered it! My third time seeing them. I love these guys and was glad they opened this tour. This is also their last show before Yob comes on the tour. The show got started late so they did not play Primordial Soup as they have on the other shows.

The build up for Tool was almost too much for me. I knew I was in for a great show, but I was not prepared for how immersed I would be in their visuals. Absolutely stunning! Maynard basically hung out in the back of the stage in the dark, next to Danny the whole set. He did say a few things during the show, which was surprising since I know he normally doesn't talk much.

Ticks & Leeches
Forty-Six & 2
I know they have been playing The Pot at other shows, but it got cut probably because of the late start. Despite the song cuts for Intronaut and Tool, this show was unbelievable. I had such a good time. During Lateralus, Danny from Intronaut came out and joined Danny Carey for a drum solo during the jam session. Mind blowing!
For those interested, shirts were $40, they had a hoodie for $75 which was cool, but not $75 cool. They also had posters for $30 and baseball caps. I got a shirt for myself and my girlfriend. Good quality and cool designs. Maybe about 7 to choose from.
