Definitely a must see for a fan

May 04, 2022 01:31PM
The singer stands in the back, in the dark. The guitarist and bassist are basically stationary the entire concert. The drummer is the center of attention. The giant screens never show the band just ongoing images. The music is loud and the energy just kind of rushes over you. And every single person around you knows every single word, every single guitar lead, note for note, every single drum beat. Tool doesn't deviate from their albums. I chastised REM for not improvising at all... but if Tool did it I think it would disappoint most fans. I don't know if its how the music is written or what... but there's a precision to the replay to it that is appreciated.

My brother likes classic rock mostly. He was getting into Pink Floyd when I talked to him about going to the concert. At 59 he thought he would be the oldest person there... but it was more like a group of peers. He said it was a Pink Floyd type of experience for him. But for the most part no one is going to confuse Tool with Floyd. To a degree I bet most fans would overlap. There are Tool fans that like metal just like there are Zeppelin fans that like metal... but there are a group of fans that like Zeppelin and Tool but not Metallica or Slipknot.
