Been a fan of Tool for a long time, finally got the chance to see them live tonight and wow they didn't disappoint. Rather short show, about hour and forty-five of playing but it was no nonsense (except for the cool noise generator intermission leading up to their encore complete with Asteroids playing on the main screen) straight ahead kick you in the teeth Tool . As I told the guys I went with, Tool came, they saw, they kicked ass and didn't say a word to the crowd in the process!!!! Maynard was Maynard, came out wearing a black T-shirt that said POSTAL, big old mohawk, billy club by his side, took his spot on the riser with the drummer and did the whole show from up there and he just tore it up, opened up with Hooker with a Penis and closed out the night with AEnima. Adam Jones was incredible, his sound was great, saw at least two Diezel's on stage from my view and Justin Chancellor, all I can say is wow, what a bass player. When they were done, they were done, Maynard waved the peace sign slowly to the whole crowd before ducking off the stage and Jones, Chancellor and Carey hung back for a couple of minutes throwing picks and drum sticks but before you knew it, house lights on, the crew is out breaking down the equipment. It almost seemed liked a blip in time but they absolutely killed it the whole show complete with typical Tool freaky videos and laser lights. It was incredible. Opening act Yob, holy jesus. That was some seeeerious doom metal, sounded like they were in freaking drop G!!! I think they only played three or four songs tops but they were on stage for a half hour!!!!
