Tool fan outlines the incident

The fan revealed that a person next to him was escorted out of the concert and he claimed it was only two minutes into the first song of the concert. He further revealed that the person was noted to be recording video. 

The fan wrote: “The guy next to me got kicked out 2 minutes into the first song for recording video, so I enjoyed the extra legroom lol. The crowd at the main entrance was cringe and aggressive, but everyone was chill at the side entrance. I got there 2 hours before doors opened and still got a poster, so no idea why you’d want to camp out or show up at 7 am.”

While another user named, GoodOlFashionAL revealed the experience of attending the show- “Amazing.” He shared his take on the show, stating Pushit to be his “favorite part.” While, “getting the Grudge scream is a highlight.”

The light show was also lauded by the fans. The lights and lasers on Pneuma also received praise from the fans. Previously, many complained about sound. It was noted that Tool fans were not delighted to listen to the band live in concert at the Ball Arena in Denver, CO on January 27. But it wasn’t their fault. It turns out poor sound quality annoyed the fans in attendance.  However, this fan enjoyed the sound quality.

Tool have released “Opiate²,” the nearly ten-minute rework of the title track of their 1992 EP, to streaming services. It starts as the “Opiate” which sounds familiar but with more modern production and a few other new twists. However, it deviates into the psychedelic territory of their 2019 comeback album Fear Inoculum. Tool are also celebrating Opiate‘s 30th anniversary with a Blu-ray featuring a Dominic Hailstone-directed short film and accompanying 46-page art book.
