Tool LIVE!

T

I am so stoked! I got to see Tool for the first time since August 13th, 1998. That’s 7,733 days for those keeping score. It was for their Ænima tour and it was intense. I had seen them the year before on August 25, 1997 for the last “real” Lollapalooza tour. (I actually chose not to see them after the 98 show because I thought there was no way to top that performance. Red Rocks + Tool = RealMagic) After this past show, I’ll never turn down an opportunity to see them live again. It has been 4,848 days since the release of the last album entitled 10,000 Days and it was worth the wait. Fear Inoculum is amazing and not at all radio friendly. The concert was at the Pepsi Center and sold out the 18,007 seats in 18 minutes. My ticket was in the nose-bleed section and I was grateful. While listening to every single amazing song of their set, I realized this band had been with me for many years. Their music is peppered throughout the many phases of my life leaving me – again – grateful . . .
