TOOL as may as well just begin every show with the clear statement. "Hello, we have the best musicians in rock right now." They will always impress with their talent. Even being ILL the vocals didn't seems to suffer very much (they had to cancel shows in previous weeks). By far the most entertainment came from the crowd for me. I've reached the IQ where I now know that when I goto a show that I paid $65 for I want to remember every last detail. That being said, I also know how few of us there are. The individual in front of me (seen downing a bottle of whiskey during the show) showed off his skills at air guitar, air bass, air drums, and even the much over looked art of the elevated hand-slap to enthused neighbors. His performance rivaled that of the band. I also got a great view of the moshpit, nothing too spectacular. Or was there? To date, this is the first time I've ever seen somebody trying to tap out every drumbeat in the air with glowsticks! IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MOSHPIT... I'll give him credit for trying, but the other pit inhabitants did not seem as amazed by this, and proceeded to whip him like dominatrix... oh well. My ears are still ringing, and lets face it if you've seen one TOOL show you've seen them all.. bravo gentlemen.
