Re: 2007/07/05 - Grand Rapids, MI - Van Andel Arena

Yeah, I'm wondering the same thing... I guess someone forgot to make a review thread for GR... hmm...

Anyway, my first post, not sure if posting about the show in here is a big no-no but I'll do it anyway since there's no review thread.

It was my first Tool concert(I'm 17, last time they were in GR I was 11, not a Tool fan then, sad to say) and I thought it was incredible. The highlight of the evening for me was the Lateralus drum-off between Danny and Big Business' drummer(who I think held his own pretty well), while Justin played the bass riff one-handed on his knees and drank a beer. At least I'm assuming it was beer... if it wasn't it was still hilarious.

By the way, I think the show/setlist was generally the same as the day before in Milwaukee, which IS posted in the reviews section, unlike GR...

Re: 2007/07/05 - Grand Rapids, MI - Van Andel Arena

Couple small complaints to an otherwise awesome show:

Would have much rather seen them play Flood.

Danny didn't play the extended drum solo in Stinkfist.

Perhaps it was rare, but at DTE Danny went nuts on like a 10 minute drum solo by himself instead of having the Big Business drummer with him. Would have much rather seen him do that again.

Is it me or do these shows look the same? I thought it was boring too.

Re: 2007/07/05 - Grand Rapids, MI - Van Andel Arena

where's the thread? that's exactly what i want to know.....maybe kabir hates michigan. we must appease his good nature. somebody tell him you love him.

fyi--spatial = special (it's my accent)

this review may include references to 2 days ago at Pine Knob or all the other shows I've been to (I think this one makes #7 since '97)

my 2 cents---they were fucking rocking the first three songs; straight up. the energy was there and they were spot on. (stinkfist came on STRONG). i was expecting something spatial when they did stinkfist exactly like the album version (is that spatial? seems they do that extend-o version quite a bit). then onto schism which started slow for me but pulled me back in with that fast little ditty in the middle.

justin appeared to have some issues with getting the feedback for LK/Rosetta...which is when i said to myself, "The choreography is getting old. They need to keep it real; especially when attempting to recreate a spatial feedback moment..." Why the fuck not? To me it seems like it would make being a rock star less of a job and at least a little more fun--right? Anyhoo--that's my opinion and I'm sticking with it (interpret as "wanted pushit")

10,000 days was next and they can play that all night. Good stuff. Right in 2 got me ga-ga and Lateralus always makes me goo-goo.

captain mayno's antics were up there tonight--gave a long winded speech at the beginning (something having to deal with thumbs). After Lateralus (during which he pulled his toilet paper magic trick and nonchalantly attached said TP to his shoe), "It has been a pleasure this evening. No shit. I wouldn't lie to you. Or would I? Anyway, that was our last song; peace out."). Onto Vicarious; a good way to end the show.

Good luck to Tool and to all you Toolphiles. Call me a daytripper but until they get that new album/DVD/movie out, I'm forced to move on with my life.

Spiral out....

Re: 2007/07/05 - Grand Rapids, MI - Van Andel Arena

great show... lazers were pretty rad.

would have much rather seen flood than the pot, but you can't have everything.

i really enjoyed the seated arrangement. it was nice to be 11 rows back in the center and not have to be kicked in the head, all sweaty and crushed.

big business was a pretty cool opener.

fun.

Re: 2007/07/05 - Grand Rapids, MI - Van Andel Arena

sucks we dont get a review thread yet, dont want to post a detailed review here so ill just sum it up quickly.

amazing show. no different than any other show this tour from the sounds of it, but i havent seen tool since 02, so it wouldve been impossible to disappoint me really without seriously fucking up. my seats were great, section 120, closest lower bowl section to the stage on Justin's side (exactly where i needed to be). not only did i have a perfect view of the stage, a partial view of backstage, but maynard was facing my section for what seemed to be the first 4-5 songs. Justin is a bass god, what can i say, the shit that comes out of that man's bass is insane! I personally loved the setlist. That seems to be most peoples problem with this tour, but considering this was my 4th tool concert, i've already heard just about everything ive wanted to hear off all the previous albums. respectful crowd, i wouldve like to seen more energy from it from the fans, but that's what will happen without a GA floor i guess.

great night, sick show, extremely fun.....id like to give a more detailed opinion, but it just doesnt seem right outside of the review section

I just wanted to say we saw them at PineKnob 7-3 and it was amazing all together (great seats), we managed to get nosebleeds @ VanAndel and the sound from sec 228 was phenomenal. I could have been blind and that was truely a great show. I have also had much better seats at VA and the sound wasn't as great.

Once again, something to get goose bumps about every time I think about it, for a while, at least.
I'll just be sitting over here, waiting for more, more more more........
