Re: North America 2014 Tour Official Posters Thread

I always go to Hobby Lobby for my framing needs. Their custom frames are always 50% off, and you can print a coupon out for another 40% off one item. I always use it for the glass. If you're looking for something really custom, a real frame shop would be better. But for your normal framing needs, th...

Re: Tool - 27 March 2014 - US Airways Center, Phoenix, AZ

Theyve handled age better than most rock bands around their age. Look at The Mars Volta they fell off faaast Whaaa? I saw The Mars Volta a few years ago and they were still kicking ass and taking names. Sure, Octahedron was eh, but they can still bring it live. If you watch any live performances fr...

Re: Tool - 24 March 2014 - Cedar Park Center - Cedar Park, T

I was one of those under the misconception that they didn't have a strong desire to release their music digitally. I thought it might have something to do with wanting to present an album as a whole, as opposed to the single song nature that is associated with digital music these days. Coupled with ...

^Great review Ascension, thanks for taking the time to do it. Even though I attended the same VIP session, I enjoyed reading your account of it. Sparked a few moments that I had nearly forgotten. I do remember seeing you at some point during the VIP, I'll try and post my picture up here sometime soo...

Re: Tool - 24 March 2014 - Cedar Park Center - Cedar Park, T

^Maynard being low in the mix must have been a result of being in the front few rows. 3 people who did the VIP session have now said Maynard was low in the mix, but every other review (and video) of the show says he sounded great. I did notice he sounded louder after intermission though. Oh well, be...

Re: Tool - 27 March 2014 - US Airways Center, Phoenix, AZ

Thank you for the info!! I'm getting hooked up with these tickets through someone who knows someone with the band, so I have no idea if I'm VIP. Is there anyway I could see if I'm on it? I HIGHLY doubt you're getting VIP tickets if this is how you're acquiring them. As far as I know, all the VIP pa...

Re: Tool - 25 March 2014 - Toyota Center, Houston, TX

Also from what I had seen from the pictures of other VIP sessions the posters were personalized That was only the first VIP. They allowed you to bring in personal items for a signature, and if you didn't bring something in, he'd sign your VIP poster for you. That took waaaaaay too long, so they swi...

Re: Tool - 24 March 2014 - Cedar Park Center - Cedar Park, T

I know probably one person read the entire thing, but hopefully someone out there enjoyed reading it. As I sit here I realize I've spent a few hours writing this. Time to go get something to eat. Good read. I enjoyed it. Thanks, glad some people enjoyed reading it. I could be off on this, but I rea...

Re: Tool - 24 March 2014 - Cedar Park Center - Cedar Park, T

This is a review I initially wrote for a Bonnaroo message board, but thought I'd go ahead and post it here since I lurked these forums for a bit. Tool Cedar Park, TX – 3/24/2014 Wow, it's hard to even know where to start the review for this show. Be prepared for a long winded account of my experienc...

Re: Tool - 24 March 2014 - Cedar Park Center - Cedar Park, T

With that said, what was the sound like further back? We were on the 3rd row on the floor and it seemed like Maynard was quite low in the mix, but from that video it sounds like you could hear him quite distinctly. Certainly didn't detract from the energy of the show, and I still think it's the bes...
