    The Pot was a revenge song for Limbaugh or somebody like him talking smack about Tool/ Maynard.

    Tool always has terrible openers. I think Maynard finds it amusing.

    I saw Tool around 2003 at ozzfest in Wisconsin. I'm pretty surprised to read these posts that he sings in the corner and doesn't want to be the focal point. I saw him in 2003 up in Wisconsin, he came out dressed in a blue leisure suit and tv preacher wig holding a bible. He was in full rock god mode, it was magical. Every song he sung as the tv preacher, shaking this bible. I'm a Tool fan but certainly no super fan and yet it was one of my all time favorite concerts. It was also the only show in my life that I was legit scared being in the pit, I backed out a few songs in because it got pretty scary. Maynard even addressed it (as the preacher) mid set to calm things a tad.

    Tried to buy tickets for the Des Moines show at 10 am sharp. Said I was in queue for 2 minutes, then it was completely sold out. Tons of tickets available on resale sites at 10:10 am with a 300% markup. What a joke.

    Didn't get my first or second choice for tickets but just considering myself lucky I got a couple through hyveetix. No way in hell I was going to pay 3X the price. Tool is awesome live but nobody is worth that much.

    Ditto. Got nosebleed through hyvee but I guess it's better than paying the outrageous markup on stubhub. I wish they'd make scalping illegal but there's too much money in it now.

    I was on at 10 also trying to get 3 and got the nothing available. Was pissed but tried again over an hour later and found 3 in level 2.

    I tried shortly after my original post and managed to get 2 after refreshing HyVee's POS mobile site 10 times.

    The sound for that show in Stephens was absolutely incredible. My seat was in one of the pods up and to the side. My body was vibrating the whole show being directly in front of the wall of speakers. A spectacular show and venue.

    I also recall that opener being bad. That show is an all timer for me. It was on my birthday and I left with a signed Danny Carey drum head that he frisbee over the crowd at the end.

    I disagree completely here. There may not be a huge amount of songs, but the album is spectacular. Your post **** the bed.

    A TOOL show pit is a thing of beauty. As rough and tumble as they come, but as soon as someone is in danger, everyone does their part to assist.

    It's mostly because Maynard wanted to do other things and Adam and Justin could never finish a song. 13 years of arguing better give me some god damn good music!!!!!!
