I have never been to a concert like this. It was a visual show like no other. It's creepy and hauntingly beautiful at the same time.
Two things I was worried about before the show never happened...so that was good. One...Maynard James Keenan did not go on any diatribes against Bush or the war or anything. He never spoke. He said the word "Fantastic" at the end and that was it.
Two...There was no blasphemy against Jesus at all during the concert. If you know anything about Tool, you know that they have written some pretty awful songs. They didn't do any of those.
One thing that goes on all night at a Tool concert is this... Behind the band is a large screen that plays some of the strangest and eeriest visuals you will ever see. Most of them are the music videos that accompany their music on MTV.
Against my better judgement, here is an example of one of those videos.
******Please Do not watch this if you get creeped out easily, and DO NOT let any kids watch this.********
It's not bad, it's not sacrilegious...it's just weird and somehow visually disturbing. It will sum up the concert I just sat through...
The laser lightshow at the concert was amazing too!!!
