    That was an awesome show!!!

    That was the best crowd I've seen for a WFA concert. By best I mean the crowd was into it the whole time. It helps when the performer is kicking as though.

    Absolutely fantastic show. It's amazing how good they sound live. Probably the "tightest" live band I've ever seen.

    This one really meant a lot to me. I've been a TOOL fan for 20+ years, and with twins coming in August, it's probably my last chance at catching them. Got to bring my brother as well who definitely does not know a single TOOL song, but loved every second of it. I had a really great time and it was probably one of the best TOOL shows I've caught.

    Definitely one of the best live performances I’ve ever seen. The sound was amazing and the light show was pretty cool.

    Did anyone else catch the opening band? What was up with the horse that looked straight out of a third grade play?

    I kinda just assumed that was just some weirdness that Maynard came up with to make people say, "wtf?". Didn't seem there was any purpose to it. I almost felt bad for the opener when they fumbled out there for no apparent reason. It almost seemed maybe like light tour hazing of some sort, if that's even a thing.

    Ha! You may be right. Even funnier if it was Tool band members doing it.

    When I saw it that's the first thing I thought. Tool is messing with these guys.

    All Souls bassist wasn't bad to look at.

    Yeah, I thought about doing that myself, and then I listened to the first minute of the first song in that Youtube video and changed my mind. It wasn't quite living up to the memory of how good I thought they sounded live, so I decided not to sully that memory. Not that the recording sounds terrible, just not quite how I remembered it. Particularly, Maynard's vocals.

    Yeah it sounded way better live than the video. I wish the video was actually a video of the concert and not just the songs with images.

    The "no photo/video recording" rule for the show made that pretty much impossible. There was a guy in the section next to where I was sitting who got pounced on by security within probably 10 seconds of pulling out his phone to record. He tried to convince them that he deleted the video, but they kicked him out anyway.

    I know. I was thinking this video was posted by a professional (like a videographer with the band) and not a fan though.
