They tried for 3 San Diego shows which seemed odd and the 3rd one went bye byes/no one bought tix for it really. they are just trying to play as much as possible while the newness is still here. someones over achieving a little though with a third show added like that.

Still kinda strange to have like 5 days off between Dallas and ATL.

Seems like they added a bunch to the stage show since the 2019 portion. Pretty sure the risers didn't have the LED's (or were broken in Houston) and it seems like there were way more projections on the curtain during FI.

They have had LED's on the risers in the past, certainly they have for the last couple of Oz tours. It does look to me like the risers are a little higher this time around, especially the two either side of Danny. I don't remember seeing them on the sides of the risers before though.

From what I observe though, each Tool tour is an evolution of the lighting and video. It's rare for a tour to be identical to the last.

Nice breakdown of some of the technical aspects from the current Fear Inoculum tour, including many worlds from our buddy Junior

2020 tour dates that were originally postponed are now cancelled. It is bummer in some ways, but honestly I think it is the right move. It is better to give everyone their money back and wait until it becomes more clear when things will get back to normal.
