Tickets went on sale today for their upcoming tour!
I have not seen them live but have always wanted to. I listened to them a ton in High School and should have gone then but I didn’t. I love the music but the crowd is not quite my scene. So I opted not to go and regretted it and of course they quit touring for quite some time.
Was supposed to go to their last tour but left the ticket getting up to a buddy and that was a bad idea.
So I put myself in charge of getting tickets this go round.
Now we just anxiously await March!
Then less than a month later off to see Elton John if that concert does not get postponed for the 3rd time now I think.

I have reluctantly passed on this one so far. Unfortunately the only show near me is over an hour away and on a Wednesday so that’s super inconvenient. I’d still go if I had anyone to go with but as much as I love Tool I’m not going to drive 3 hours round trip on a Wednesday by myself to see them.

I’ve seen them several times though and you are in for an amazing show.

I am the same way. Lateralus played a large part in defining my musical taste, and I love all their albums, but I'll never go to a show.

Love the music, but all I hear are horror stories about the live concerts. Fights, (moshing) break out everywhere…it’s not a situation where you’d be comfortable bringing your gal.

When you are a Tool fan and decide to run on stage, only to learn that the singer happens to practice MMA and makes YOU the show for the next 15 minutes.

Interesting comments about the crowd. I’ve been to a few Tool shows, and a few APC shows too, and never had any issues or noticed anything particularly off about the fans there. The first one of their shows I went to at The Tabernacle in ATL, there were lot of counterfeit tickets sold and they removed everyone from the venue and had Ticketmaster send reps to recheck tickets. The show started a few hours late and nobody made any sort of scene. Everyone seemed pretty chill about it.

Though most of the shows I’ve gone to as a customer are in that same genre of music so I spend most of my time at concerts among many of the same people. Perhaps I’m just used to it but I’ve never had any issues at any of them. I even jump into the mosh pit at most of them and despite the look from the outside most people in the pit are super friendly and just having fun.

The exact reasons I picked the venue I did. No general admission, no pits, assigned seating and got an aisle seat.

I have spent my time in the pit when I was young. I want to enjoy the show.

I put Fear Inoculum into the CD player on the way to work today. I got goosebumps and almost cried. I hope you update this thread with your impressions of the concert.

Good live show. Bring ear plugs.

Yes (tickets).

After several Tool shows over the years, plus a few by APC and Puscifer, I have no idea what you're taking about regarding the crowd.

Tool shows have never been known as wild or rough. I've sat in a seat at most shows, with friends and girlfriends and such, safe and sound, even when standing the whole time in General Admission at a show or two. Literally zero issues of any sort.

Strange comments.

Tool shows have never been known as wild or rough. I've sat in a seat at nearly every single show, with friends and girlfriends and such, safe and sound, even when standing. Literally zero issues of any sort.

I’m figured you’d find your way into this thread and I’m glad you commented as your experiences mirror mine above.

In fact since you brought up seats, I did attend one APC show that was in a shitty old warehouse with no seating at all. We were fairly close to the stage and if there was any moshing going on I don’t recall it. I took my then wife to that show as did a friend of mine. No issues at all.

Also I’d like to point out, based on an earlier post, that moshing is not fighting.

If anyone is hesitant to see Tool based on the audience I think you are missing out based on a fear of nothing. Of course you can always find yourself around rowdy fans but that shit happens at pop-country concerts probably as often as it would at a Tool show.

It's a shame they weren't doing Stinkfist when that guy jumped up...

Congrats on the tickets. I have been debating whether or not to go to the one here in Utah. I have seen them several times all across the country, including the last 3 tours. Set list will be a big factor for me to decide.

I saw them first back in 93 (extra credit for anyone that automatically thinks of a certain song on Aenima with that date) on the Lollapalooza tour, they were a second stage act at that point. I am wondering if the comments about the crowd came from that time period. They took the stage about 3pm, and I can remember the first time hearing a young Maynard scream on stage. I can't remember who was on the main stage when that scream came over the grounds, but I do remember almost everyone left to go and see what was happening on the second stage. There was definitely a mosh pit starting to form.

I think you will find the crowd at a Tool show to be pretty much like any other concert. Lots of people in their 50's or older, and with ticket prices, you aren't getting drunk punks cruising the show looking to hurt people.

You will be in for a treat with all of the visuals that go on at their shows, there is some incredible artwork (Alex Gray) along with lights, lasers and other media. Enjoy it for sure. Plus they are very accomplished musicians with an incredible sound set up along with the needed sound people.

I hope people that do go to the shows will post song lists as well as impressions of the show in general. Maybe that can help change the minds of some, it really is worth seeing them at least once.
