    Rosetta stoned out last night. I know it’s not their best song but I’d love to see it. As a drummer, I’d love to watch DC rip through it. It’s so difficult. There’s no way I’d go with last nights set. I hope it changes significantly for the next leg. They hit this area with this set already. 
    So early on, it looks like they’re swapping out Pushit w/ RS, and then in that slot right before the encore they’re rotating Stinkfist, 46&2 & Swamp Song. 

    NGL, despite having heard it more, I would still take Pushit over RS. & I would LOVE to hear Swamp Song, but the other two songs, while great tracks & staples of their library have also been played at pretty much every show they played pre-2022; it’s kind of uninspiring that those are what’s being rotated. 
    I LOVE Pushit ..: they played both it and RS at two festivals I believe so it’s confusing that they’re rotating them.

    Make sure that you're aware of their no  phone policy before you go.  I've seen stories on reddit of people being ejected from the 10/11 Salt Lake City show, without warning, for taking a picture or short video.  Some were kicked out during the first song or even the opening band.  Wait until the end because Maynard says something about photos and videos being okay for the last song.
    I would take the Reddit posts w/ a grain of salt. Tool’s been pretty up front about the zero tolerance policy for camera usage at their shows for a long time. There are usually signs everywhere, and an announcement shortly before they take the stage that violators will be ejected. 

    cant speak to ejections, but he does do a final song spiel...

    now I was upper bowl and took pics and video at various points throughout....

    Yes, for sure… he tells security to stand down and allow recording for the last song of the night. This is new since APC’s 2017 tour I think. Before that there was a pretty firm zero tolerance policy. 

    Seeing Puscifer in ‘16 at a theater, I checked my phone in between the opener and headliner, didn’t even hold the phone up. Had it next to my leg and an usher politely reminded me phone usage wasn’t allowed in the theater. Granted, some venues are more diligent than others, it is what it is.

    Looks like they're at least changing up the closer... Aenima ended the show last night, and I think 46&2 a few nights ago. 

    I'll take it... I really like Invincible, but it's not a great song to close out the show, not to mention that encore needing more energy.

    Encore def needs more than just one real song.

    Two days in a row w/ Intolerance in there. 

    I would love to hear Swamp Song, as that would be a first, but I'm sure as shit not going to complain if I get Intolerance instead.

    Glad you enjoyed, Hugh. the Boston show can't come soon enough. 

    I wonder what they'll do tomorrow night in St Paul. I'm sure the set will stay more or less the same, but they usually do something out of the norm when playing on Halloween

    2015 Halloween show... they came out dressed as Zep & opened w/ No Quarter. 

    Easily one of my fondest memories from any show ever.

    It really was... just hearing that song in that moment was surreal... I never in my wildest dreams thought I would see that live.

    That’s hilarious because them opening up with cold and ugly is also forever embedded in my brain. As soon as it started people were rushing the GA from the seats! It was nuts

    Same... for a long time Opiate was the only track I heard from it until they brought Sweat back into the rotation in '17. 

    That was fantastic, and pretty much my last white whale for these guys, Sure, I would love to hear anything else from Opiate, or Jimmy, or 4 Degrees... but I'm not holding my breath for any of them.

    I bought the insanely priced band signed poster from my show. I did the calculation of the gross sales based on 750 posters per show, which sold out, at least at my show: $262,500 just from posters!!!

    Their merch scene has taken on a life of its own... It was like Black Friday in Cleveland last year and totally turned me off. 

    I guess they're selling doodles for $2500 or so (prints w/ added art from Adam Jones). I don't begrudge them doing that, that's what some resell for. I just can't wrap my brain around spending that much on a concert poster.

    Misfits and Slayer I paid 150 for band signed posters and was happy to pay that.
