Tool toughed out to the snowstorm over the weekend and carried on with their concerts. Fans had great reviews of the show on the band’s Reddit page.
Section 331, perfect angles for all of the visuals. That fucking star man. They knew exactly what they were doing, and this was by far the best I’ve ever seen them perform. They completely reworked all of those songs, it’s as if they were a cover band of themselves only better than the original. Danny was basking in his greatness with the most technical and clear solo I’ve ever seen. Maynard is correct in saying this snow can “suck suck a big bag of salty dicks”
Section 208. My first time seeing Tool. They were incredible. I knew No Quarter was going to be the opener and I wasn’t really too excited…that song is just too long and slow to be an opener, IMO. BUT, being there, in the moment, it totally fucking worked. I have a new respect for that song. I wish the setlist was maybe 3-4 songs longer but I’m not complaining. Some of the songs they DID play were among my very favorites of theirs.
The sound quality in the arena was really good for where we were sitting, I was surprised. My only complaint was this lady SCREAMING throughout Primus’ entire set, (drunk lady voice), “GET UP!! WHY ARE YOU SITTING! GET THE FUCK UP!” Overall, it was amazing. I can’t believe I never saw them live before.
I was in 205. Hands down the best show I’ve ever seen. I’m not a huge fan of arenas but Bridgestone was perfect last night. The sound was amazing! I’ve seen shows in Rupp Arena in Lexington and the YUM Center in Louisville. Neither compared to the show in Bridgestone. No Quarter was on point! I recorded several songs on my cell and they’re really good quality! These guys know how to put on a show.
