This is AMAZING news!
I’d be stoked if they surprised us with The Patient again. Such an underrated track! I was lucky enough to see it live back in 2011, immediately followed by Flood. :o

Fun fact: the band rehearsed The Patient at their soundcheck yesterday, with Maynard doing vocals too. It sounded good obviously, even if we could only hear it from outside the venue.

I don't think they've played it since 2010.

Hey Junior, keen to see this new stage/lighting setup come to Australia next month! :)
I remember in previous discussions, you mentioned that international shows were limited to what could be transported overseas. Can you give anything away as to what we might see on the upcoming AU shows? Hoping we see this new stage with the two levels for Jimmy and your complete lighting rig, plus the addition of the curtain!!!

Hey Junior, are all of these rigs part of the Tool convoy?

Yes
Logistics for Australia are still being finalized, but I do know that duplicates of some of the items were sent by boat last week, so we are trying to make it close to similar.
Some of it does come down to what it available in Australia and (separately) NZ.

Sounds like we Aussies need to go to the states to the the full visual show, but no disrespect junior I'm there for the music first and foremost (well actually the guy that does the lighting then the music)

The last Aussie tour was pretty close to the US one I reckon, so I'd expect it'll be of a similar high standard this time round. Hopefully the band have a backup heptagram and fern

Thanks for the update Junior, I’m sure you’ll manage to put on an equally mind blowing production!

Hellboy - I don’t think the heptagram has made it out for all AU tours, hoping they can transport it this time, I feel like it’s an extension of Danny’s kit!
Luckily we are abundant in ferns out here...

I don't think the heptagram in it's current guise was a thing when they last toured Oz. It' made it across the ditch to the EU tour last year, so I'm optimistic.

Seems to be a pretty critical part of the set these days

LMAO! Tool was just an answer on the Jeopardy! champions show. Had to do with MJK and what band he belonged to re: reaching #1 after thirteen years between albums. James H. answered it correctly. \m/

Hi junior, since you have been pretty active on Fourtheye, I thought I would ask you... I'll be seeing Tool back to back this coming weekend in Vegas and in Glendale. I have floor seats for Vegas only, so I was thinking of going and saying hi. Can I go up to your work area or is it pretty restricted?

Interesting interview with Mackie Osborne with a lot of Tool content including confirming the Fear Inoculum LP (package and box etc. designed) as well as Aenima and Lateralus reissues ("we've talked about them..."):

Cool interview - thanks for sharing. Looking forward to some Fear Inoculum vinyl.

Interesting to hear confirmed that the Video edition is done and that the book edition is the "regular" edition

SOunds to me like reissues of the older albums is no sure though, at least in the shorter term.

I wonder what the original video plan was - Mackie mentioned it was originally considered for a smaller release. I'm guessing the Opiate re-recording+video
Cool and informative interview indeed.

I wonder how things would have turned had they announced the "expanded book edition" of the album would be released at a later date. Maybe the "limited edition" wouldn't have sold out as quickly as it did or maybe people wouldn't have felt the need to pay excessive prices on Ebay or elsewhere for it.

It still seems strange that the "expanded book edition" doesn't include a digital download of the full album, but I do think the ability to download Recusant Ad Infinitum was a great addition.

Will be interesting to see if the vinyl edition includes anything new to entice fans to pick it up, other than the fact that its vinyl.

Even more curious to know what they're going to end up doing with that new recording of Opiate and the accompanying video now.
So Long, and Thanks for All the Tool.

Hey Junior, I went to your booth (in Vegas) and tried to say hi. Your security guard got your attention and you just waived hi with a frustrated look (from a distance). I completely understand because i was just there 10 to 15 minutes before the show and you looked really fucking busy. BTW, the lighting is fucking amazing, so great fucking job. I really love the lights over the middle of these arenas. This is the first time you guys have done this, right? I didn't see these lights in October at Glendale Arizona.

Junior, question: A few years ago Adam Jones replaced his Mesa Boogie dual rectifier head with a second Diezel amp, but leaving the Glendale show (Saturday) I only saw one Diezel, one Mesa boogie amp and his old marshall bass amp. Why did he switch back to one Diezel amp and back to his Mesa Boogie dual rectifier amp? Just curious.

Hmmm, not sure if I'm going to go to the Sydney gigs now if that's how they treat their fans, geez.

Good banter.

I'd just like to take this opportunity to reiterate in the new year how butt-hurt I remain they're not alternating with consistency Descending on tour, let alone playing it every set.
The Patient? Cool. Nice little tribute to AJ from MJ? Ye (ye?) who declares the setlist.
Enjoy. Far out.

Seems that way, and there's another picture floating around somewhere showing a few more coaches for the crew as well. It's quite the convoy.

It's awesome getting to see behind the curtain. Never really realize how much goes into these shows.

HAHA! Nah man, I could tell he and the entire crew were really busy. I just showed up at the wrong time. The show was about to start in about 10 minutes.
