Hmm…Tool. I saw them back in 97’, the one and only time I actually won tickets from a radio station (I answered a trivia question of some kind) for Lollapalooza…ten years gone in the circle of a mosh pit.
Anyhow, Maynard came out in a sumo style man diaper and nothing else, with his hair shaved back to mid skull where it ended in a glorious man pony tail. All in all they gave a solid performance, but I was back so far in the boonies I didn’t get the full experience. Meh, free tix are free tix.
Nowadays I try to see bands in small venues whenever I can, or at least general admission where one can bulldoze their way to the front. I can’t stand giant seated arenas where you’re so far back in bum fuck egypt you may as well stay home.
As for summer concerts I mentioned I went to Coachella, thus far that’s been the highlight (that and Morrissey)…but I’m massively anticipating seeing KOL again at the Warfield in SF.
