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

on March 05, 2014, 12:27pm

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.”

Check out a few videos and the full setlist from last night below.

Great journalism once again from CoS. Let’s basically copy and paste a piss poor Rolling Stone article, find a shit video from YouTube and make no mention that this is the same exact shit that Tool has done since George W. Bush was killing brown kids in that giant sandbox known as the Middle East.
