Check out the setlist for Tool’s first U.S. concert in two years


    Tool is back playing U.S. venues for the first time in two years. Last night, the band kicked off the jaunt in Spokane, WA, and spoiler alert: they played no new songs. Instead, their two-hour performance was chock full of greatest hits, featuring tracks like “Lateralus”, “Vicarious”, “Ænema”, “Stinkfist”, and “Hooker With A Penis”.

    The real highlight of the evening, however, was the stage setup and visuals. As Rolling Stone noted in their review of the show:

    “The stage design for this tour was something to behold. More than most live acts, Tool go out of their way to deliver a show designed to completely overwhelm the senses, with the visual component being just as important and as impressive as the auditory. An ever-shifting screen layout, splashed with macabre and disturbing imagery was combined with a tapestry of laser beams and periodic blasts of confetti to shift attention away from the band members themselves and toward a more deeply immersive experience. It’s a relatively ego-free move, putting presentation ahead of the players.”
