HELL YES!! That was an amazing show, opened with 3rd Eye, closed with AEnema. Also: Lateralus, The Pot, The Patient, Stinkfist, Schism, Intolerance, Intention, Vicarios, Jambi... Not necessarily in that order. So, so good!

Welp. I ummm... searching for words here.... nope! Got none! I am officially speechless.

I guess I should say I did look for some TDN folks but to no avail. Hope you guys had fun! I'll see if I can come up with something else to say later. I'm not even tired it's just... yea...

Re: 07.19.2010 - Los Angeles, CA @ Nokia Theater

Just got back from the show...

I was blindsided by the band tonight...never expected The Pot!!

Highlights were EBA/The Patient, Pot, Intolerance and Lateralus was once again, the ****!!

Bought the poster for 30 pesos, all in all, I am losing my hearing but well worth it! :)

They transposed the Pot down a whole step at least and changed the key of the song to accommodate Maynard btw. Not a huge deal. But it did make the song sound a bit deeper than it has in the past when I have seen it. MJK gave his all in it. He really belted it out, probably feeling a little more comfortable in the slightly altered register.

The political savvy types...... The Film Actors Guild. Ha ha ha! So true. And what about poor Lindsay Lohan?! Sorry no sympathy tears from us. Great show tonight. Heard some tracks that I have never heard them play before in the 14 other times I have seen them. No need for me to post the setlist. Everone else will. Ha ha! The crowd actually seemed like they were paying attention for once. Still though there were some jocko-homos about. All in all... a great experience... again.

Re: 07.19.2010 - Los Angeles, CA @ Nokia Theater

Yes, that is the summation of the night. "I could die happy." Somewhat. Lamented over and over about what would actually make me drop dead at a Tool show: pushit

ANYWAY-----

Full Intension!!!! I jammed as fast as I could back from the rest room(post 48 oz beer, already). What an epic treat insofar, right. No.....it gets better!

Aside from nailing every essense of the songs on tonight's set list; we were surprised with THE POT! Was not expecting that in the least. Was 100% ready (and happy) to hear the repeated standarized set list for this tour.

I just wish that when maynard said "this one's for you" after Aenima, that they would have busted into the true 'encore.'

So this wraps up Tool's tour for now. READ UP GUYS(the band): I seriously can not wait until the alleged new album. I will not ever get enought of this band live.

BTW: Dalek < Justin Bieber

Re: 07.19.2010 - Los Angeles, CA @ Nokia Theater

Unfortunately, I spoiled The Pot for myself because I was able to get a peep at the Setlist before the show, one of the security guards had his backstage pass paper thing printed on the back of the setlist. When I saw it I shit bricks. The guy also saved me the setlist for the end of the night and gave me it :D

What can I say about the show? Maynard was in a great mood!

Maynardism after Third Eye: "Its ok, Im a cop....uhh thats all I got, sorry" Of course he was dressed in his cop uniform and during the intermission he changed into a cowboy outfit.

I had the privilege of meeting Alex Grey and having him sign my ticket, but I must admit, the thing that stole the night for me was meeting fucking TOM MORELLO outside of the Nokia and taking a picture with him!

Amazing night, amazing show. Ill never forget it

Re: 07.19.2010 - Los Angeles, CA @ Nokia Theater

What else can be said that hasn't already. Indeed an amazing show.

You know whats funny. Right before the doors opened, I was chatting with a some guys who had never seen Tool live. They asked me if I thought they would play The Pot tonight and I told them "I didn't think so". Well jokes on me.

The hi-light for me was Intolerance. Have always wanted to hear that one live! Followed by Intension which would mean I have now heard all the songs off of 10,000 Days live.

Again, awesome show and I can't wait till the next Tool show. 2011??? 2012??? 2013???

Re: 07.19.2010 - Los Angeles, CA @ Nokia Theater

My eighth show and definitely #2. Sorry, boys, but it's hard to top the Halloween show in San Diego 2001 complete with "Pushit", my favorite song along with Lateralus.

But tonight was magical. Brilliant from start to finish. Maynard's vocals (change in key notwithstanding) were beautiful, Adam was free-flowing with real emotion, and Justin & Danny are absolute BEASTS. Everyone was stellar, but lest I forget...

The visuals.

By far the most extravagant, gorgeous, conceptually-aligned (but not bloated), lighting I have seen at a concert ever. Everything matched the music in such a perfect fashion that the 3 newbies I was with watched the entire show with jaws on the floor. Stunning.

This band continues to amaze me and will for the rest of my life and my children's lives. I can only hope that they continue to have the desire and fuel to continue to make magic so my kids can see this at some point!

And FYI for anyone who feels at all slighted by Maynard's wine venture, feeling that he cares more about his wine than Tool at this point, much less that it's "weird", etc. It's time to enjoy the truth: The man will continue to both make music and wine because they are his passion, and as such he has made them dependent on one another. One will not exist without the other for him simply because they ARE him.

To conclude: You want more Tool records, more Tool music, more Tool LIVE? Get off the Bud Light and learn about the blood, sweat, and absolute beauty of wine. Read a tad bit about what actual FARMERS have to do to create this lovely liquid, and how difficult it is for them to find a way through mindless bureaucracy and a saturated market to create something new. Then help give a new venture a chance and buy some Caduceus juice!

Bravo, Tool. Goodnight.

Re: 07.19.2010 - Los Angeles, CA @ Nokia Theater

This marks my 17th show dating back to 1994 and like always this one was amazing .... What I enjoyed most was having my 7yr old son with me .... He rocked his ass off singing along with Maynard every step of the way..

It was really nice to intolerance and the whole speach about back to te future.... Ya had to be there to understand...

Well once again my soul feels cleansed
thank you T00L

Re: 07.19.2010 - Los Angeles, CA @ Nokia Theater

Last night was f-ing fantastic! The absolute highlight for me was "The Pot".... Seriously?! I also went to the Sunday night show (which was also amazing) but last night the band just pulled out some sort of awesomeness that I really can't explain. Maynard walking out in the cop outfit with mustache and all was f-ing great!

I couldn't tell. It was definitely a LA Clippers jersey, I thought I read 42 as well but couldn't read the name on the back. I've seen Danny, Justin, & Adam at Lakers games before. What a show, glad to be a part of it.

Re: 07.19.2010 - Los Angeles, CA @ Nokia Theater

It's hard to put into words but I loved the performance, sound & visuals. I suppose I'm getting old and the Opiate songs as well as many Undertow songs will rarely be performed again but I still hold onto those memories from the 90's.

I enjoy the fact that they simply perform their music without many antics or political speeches. I get lost in the songs and there are moments where I feel as if I am watching them perform in my garage among friends. In a way that's exactly what it is.

Re: 07.19.2010 - Los Angeles, CA @ Nokia Theater

Awe-fuckin-some!

These were the best seats I've had at a Tool show and the sound was amazing! It even sounded louder than last night. Had a clear line of site at Danny all night...fuckin epic.

I believe we heard some new stuff...sorta ambient-y stuff between songs



The only negatives were the bitches a couple rows in front of us that kept flashing pics...of themselves! so the flash was blinding everyone behind them...like more than 10 times in a row I shit you not...I had to finally say something to get em to stop.

Also, Dalek on Lateralus was no good...totally took me out of it...Danny saved it for me though as he had to push extra hard and even smiled at Justin after a really good roll (sorta like "uh-oh I'm gonna have to work here")only to top it with an even more intense pounding climax.

Thank you, Tool, Junior and the rest of the crew for some more nights I'll never forget.

Re: 07.19.2010 - Los Angeles, CA @ Nokia Theater

danny wore a clippers jersey with his name Carey on the back and # 42

was front row far right side in front of justin and got one of his bass guitar picks at the end. i'll post a photo of it and the backstage pass i found, just need a little time.

phenomenal show. i mean they really outdid themselves by playing 4 songs different from the night before, along with an 11 song set. tool have not only returned to form, they are at a level i have rarely if ever seen. way to go out on a bang, summer 2010 was incredible!

Re: 07.19.2010 - Los Angeles, CA @ Nokia Theater

36th show overall, and 4th on this tour. This show was the 2nd best of this summer tour, nothing compares with holding onto the front rail 5 feet from the stage at Bill Graham. The sound in the Nokia is what makes it such a great show. "Echo Arena" in Sac, and shitty Viejas in S.D. not the best sound. Nokia and Bill Graham ROCK!!! The pot was a surprise, but I was a little let down when I heard intension and it wasn't followed by RIT. Glad I found this website, and since I have dedicated myself to seeing at least 50 shows, I'll post the rest here!!! Spiral out...keep going...

Re: 07.19.2010 - Los Angeles, CA @ Nokia Theater

anyone recall what he tried to say before intolerance? He sounded drunk and started by asking who had seen back to the future, and then some equation about micheal j fox... he trailed off and said fuck it and said this is an old song or something. Really hilarious.

I sat next to a guy Rob from Colorado who flew in from the show and gave me a piece of acid. It was a first time for me and it just felt like destiny. He said it came from Swissterrland, Needless to say, the show was a trip and the lights looked more vibrant than ever. Best Sounding tool show I have ever been to

He said something like "Raise your hand if youve seen Back to the Future. Alright this song is kind of like that movie. Its like the scene where Michael J Fox, now bear with me this is hard math, where he comes back from the future, or wait, back from the past to the future...or no wait...fuck it!"

I believe so too. I can't remember which songs it was in between, but when I heard that I said to myself that sounds like something that will be on the next album. They have been known to do that in past tours.

Re: 07.19.2010 - Los Angeles, CA @ Nokia Theater

All I can say is wow, I went to both LA shows and they were equally AMAZING! MJK is in top form these days! I saw them back in '94 at the San Bernardino Arena (about 200 people) and at Soma in SD (about 500 people), I have to say they sound better than ever! Can't wait for the new CD and tour!

Re: 07.19.2010 - Los Angeles, CA @ Nokia Theater

Saw Seattle, San Diego, and both LA shows.
This night was the best of all 4!!

Nokia Theater is incredible. Saw them there in 2007 also. Nice to have CLOSE seats this time around there. The show was almost perfection……….Only one very special thing to me was missing this time around...... But seeing them there is an incredible experience.

Maynard was seemingly more "into" this last show. Missed having the drum duel of the other shows during Lateralus, but man, this show was just fucking fantastic! Right in Two for the first LA show was my highlight of all 4 shows - but goddamn, I was not expecting Intension or The Pot at ALL on this night. What a fantastic surprise. Thanks to the band for switching up BOTH LA nights from the other shows on the tour.

Looooooved The Patient - this night in particular as I could hear the whole audience joining in throughout the song - amazing "goose bumps" moment. That song is just FUCKING AWESOME live.

They played the HELL out of Lateralus this show (which is saying something cause every night it is amazing). At the start of the song the girl behind me kept yelling to her friend, "are you ready? Are you ready?" hahaha indeed I was!!.... I missed the drum battle this show that I saw on the others – But the end sections of that song after the solo, I dont know, there was just an energy with the band and the audience at that moment that was amazing. It almost felt like it was the "last time" they would ever play it, it seemed to be played with so much energy. It was truly one of the best moments at a show Ive ever seen.

Thanks to the guy in front of me for being cool and respectful when I told him to lower his camera from my view. If only more people could show such courtesy during a show to those behind them. Having a BRIGHT little screen of the show in the center of your view pretty much sucks.

Really bummed that I didnt get that "California Republic" shirt as I stupidly waited for the second LA night to buy and they were sold out of L and XL before the doors even opened. I Did get the poster though. If anyone wants to trade night one for the extra night 2 I have, PM me!!

and yeah - as said above - the idiots that use their flashes (LEDs on the phones) for pics - get a clue ok? youre not going to get any good shot of the show with a flash and you are just irritating those around you.

Overall, this night was amazing. The energy was unbelievable with band and audience.
All 4 shows during Aenema where "Im praying for rain" comes in, was very bittersweet - as I know the show is now almost over. But last night (this show) – though I knew now it was REALLY all most over being the last night and all……….the whole show was just fucking amazing from start to finish.

The guys really out did themselves at this show. What a way to end this tour/and my little run of 4 shows.

Thanks to the band for the experience – as always.

The name on the back of the jersey was his last name... "Carey."

Besides the inclusion of the Pot which was awesome, I wanted to comment a bit further on the inclusion of Intension.

I know there are some amongst you who feel that song is just filler. Hell, even last night I could see some of the wandering by fans as they launched into it. But honestly I think it is a beautiful song. And, if you really paid attention to it last night, I think you got some glimpses of some of the next record in there. The sections that opened Intension and then eventually led into EBA and the Patient were not something I have heard before.

On the subject of new material- one of my friends noted on another message board about the new break they put in just before where the outro used to be for the final "Prying open..." close to Third Eye. Not sure if that has been getting done all along on this tour but it is different than the Salival version of same song.

I don't have much more to add to all the great reviews. But I think I will go ahead and do something I don't normally think to do and say THANK YOU TOOL! And I do not just mean the band. Thanks to all the stage, lighting, roadies etc who did such an amazing job making this show not only feel seemless, but turn both nights in LA into a special event I was lucky to attend. Even this site, which provides a great outlet for fans like myself, deserves thanks for providing to the overall experience. Awesome job guys!

Maynard walking out in the cop outfit with mustache and all was f-ing great!
I couldn't quite figure out the image uploader on here... So here are my pics from the Sunday and Monday night shows. Sunday I was in orchestra center seating and Monday night I was in center pit. Pictures taken w/my phone - but some turned out okay. What great shows!

Re: 07.19.2010 - Los Angeles, CA @ Nokia Theater

Did anybody catch Justin & Danny before Schism?

Justin ripped off 2 notes to either 46&2 or Right in Two. Then Adam dropped the first few notes to Schism. The crowd went nuts then Justin gave Adam the friendly bird and mouthed "fuck you" as they broke into the song.

I was hoping somebody else caught that and had an opinion of what they were considering playing. From my perspective Justin didn't commit to a chord that the croud could make out and when Adam kicked into Schism people were onto it right away.
