As the tour approaches…

The next Tool tour is almost upon us, and while some of us are still waiting to buy tickets, others deep in the south of the United States wait with baited breath for some kind of change to the setlist.  What will they play?  Will there be any cool lights?  Will Justin have a new guitar strap?  All these things and more we will find out shortly!

In celebration of this I have started a new Tour 2010 section in the forum.  I will create a thread for each show, and those of you that have anything to contribute (setlists, reviews, photo’s, whatever) feel free to do so.  Please refrain from creating new threads unless I’ve obviously missed a show, or it’s a topic tour related that really needs it’s own thread. 

This new forum will be more heavily moderated than the others in Fourtheye, mainly to make sure that they stay on topic.  Anyone willing to give me a hand in doing this, let me know (make sure you’re a Fourtheye regular though, I probably won’t consider making someone I don’t know a mod).

Also, I know some people are deliberately trying to avoid Tool forums so they don’t accidentally see setlists and such.  In order to make Fourtheye a safe location for these readers, from this point forward set lists can only be posted in the new Tour 2010 section. Any found in comments of normal Fourtheye posts will be deleted.

    Surprised theres still been no announcement of an opening act. Wonder if there will even be one? I would kind of like to see Ashes Divide tour with them actually.

    Yeah it is strange.  I suspect at this late stage it’s probably just some obscure DJ or electronica artist making some noise.

    is it just me, or am I the only one not expecting much out of this tour? I really dont think the stage setup will be different for such a small tour, and I bet the setlist will be similar to the last tours. I hope I’m wrong though

    I talked to Jr and said there is an opening act for each show, but it will be different acts and he didn’t know who they were at the time. Looks like I’ll be tailgating for the opening act.

    Thanks for providing us with the best and most up to date TOOL news anywhere in the world Hellboy!!   You put Blair to shame!!  I will be attending both shows at Red Rocks and also the show in Seattle at Key arena.  I will have my lap top and will post reviews on fourtheye as soon as the shows are over.

    thanks again for the site

    Wow…I never would have imagined this pairing.
    Definitely jealous of those folks getting to see DEE & Co. open for Tool.
    Completely different styles of music, to say the least, and yet two of my favorites.

    I think they will start playing new stuff here and there. That is typical right before an album comes out, and Maynard has said as much as well.
