This is my 6th Tool concert, but this one was the best and well worth the wait! Just about everyone respected the band's wishes and kept their phones away with the exception of a few knuckleheads. Saw a few of them get tossed. The band was completely engaged and put on an amazing performance! I was 3 rows up from the right side of the stage in section 10 and it went from a concert to almost a religious experience. They were absolutely phenomenal!! I have to admit I was shocked when Maynard gave the crowd a gift at the end. I was so close to the stage, he was completely into his performance, they all were!! Danny's solo after the intermission was insane!! Next Gen Neil Peart and absolute Master was all I could think to myself during that solo. But the reality is, all 4 members f'en crushed it with passion and perfection! For 20 years this band has been my favorite, and they always will be! Tool forever!!

This was my 2nd show, the first being in 1996 at Starwood. The 2020 was by far an outstanding performance, and the 1st one was too no doubt. But this show really felt special. The crowd was feeding off the energy of the band and the super amazing light show! It was a performance! Each sonds energy past on to the next to point of being electrifying. We met many people there and were enjoying themselves as we were too. I will go again.

BEST EXPERIENCE IN YEARS
For the first time in 9 years. The wife and I had a date night. Days leading up to the show were ho hum, thats putting it lightly. On the way somewhere to do something I was dreading im sure. I happened to catch Syd on 98.1 mention a chance to win tix to Tool. On a whim , i tossed my hat in. Thinking I was wasting my time. I never win anything. Amazingly I WON! There is more to the story. But I wont bore anyone. Ive been a Tool fan since 1993. And missed the chance to see them at the Coliseum years ago. So the same week I begin a new job after being out of meaningful work for nearly a year. I win the tickets of a lifetime. Tool saved my relationship with my wife of 20 years. We both let it all hang out without a care in the world and smiled, laughed, cheered and did not stop moving our bodies or sit down once during the entire show. The band came out of the gate firing on all cylinders. From the first note until the last. With absolutely no let up. Being able to watch 4 craftsmen , ply their trade. In an era of music mediocrity. Has been an unbelievably uplifting experience. Injecting much needed joy and optimism into our lives. And yes, music done properly can change a lifes direction. And in this case a relationships. The wife got to see a side of me she has never seen before in 20 years of marriage. Being able to share this concert experience with her. Made it even more special. Thank you so much to the band. For being absolute professionals and creative masterminds. It is truly appreciated. And thank you to the members of the Tool Army. For being some of the best music fans, that any band would be lucky to have. Next time our children will be exposed to the musical juggernaut of TOOL!!

MAYBE I AM JUST OLD?
I took my 14 yo son, and I familiar with the more popular songs. I thought Maynard and the band sounded perfect, but I paid to see them perform. Had I prepared and read up ahead of time I would have known that is not what you will see at a Tool show, but I guess I am old school and prefer to actually see the band play and be interactive. As for my son, he was bored. Oh well... It was an experience either way.
