I think they should do at least one Opiate or Undertow song each night, but with the new album they may not even be able to do one from every previous album. I would think at the very least that should be possible. Especially if they don't play every single song from Fear Inoculum every night and instead rotate songs to be able to fit in older songs and even hopefully play one that hasn't been played in a while occasionally. 4 Degrees is a good choice. Flood, Undertow, Cold and Ugly would be nice too

Sorry, but fuck rotating new songs just to fit in old ones. They've played them to death at this point. I want to hear the new stuff. They can go back to greatest hits after this tour.

Ya I’m going to NEED all the new tunes live and how beautiful it will be! Love the old staples but NOT interested in seeing Schism,46&2 or Stinkfist again.

I would prefer to hear all the new songs over anything else. I was just speculating on whether they will or not really. I think there's a good chance they will play the whole album.

It's not like it's going to strain Nards voice either.

I just hope all the testosterone in the audience can chill the f out and not go all 2001: Dawn of Man the whole show. One show I had someone randomly scream in my ear like they had no idea how to react to the music, like they were embarrassed to just do nothing. I get it when people sing, but for God's sake, please don't be that person that just hollers. You're taking up valuable hertz. That all being said, I'd pay extra to see them play this album in Japan for that reason. Budokan mofos!

The new album is pretty well suited for playing live, especially in respect to Maynard's voice, so wouldn't surprise me if they play all or most of it. I think Culling Voices presents a few challenges though, unless Justin plays a guitar for the first half and then switches to bass.

Tool don't seem to write studio only songs though, so I expect they have some plan for CV

Is it possible Adam uses a looper or something else to perform Culling V?

Possible I guess, but seems silly having Justin stand around twiddling his thumbs for 7 minutes

Good point. Maybe he is playing a sort of acoustic bass or something. Is that definitely two guitars?

a good plan for CV is not to play it. thats the only song i dont want to hear. i dont think they will play the entire album but def most of it. similiar to the lateralus tour i guess.

Even with a looper, there ends up being 3 guitar tracks before the bass kicks in, one of which mirrors the bass' first riff at one point.. I do wonder if Justin is playing on the album. To bad reporters don't actually discuss the music ever

Wasn't there a song where Nard would hold something like a keytar and no one knew what he was actually doing?

Yea, a bass on Schism and DRT. He was playing unpleasant harmony during the guitar solo of Reflection and some sort of drone note of the chorus of Schism. I would imagine there is more, but I have never been able to hear it to well and it always looks like he's just standing there.

Right after or before the intermission have Adam, Justin and the guitar player for Killing Joke jam CV. Right into CCtrip with a guest drummer and then ruin everyone with 7emest!

I don't see CV happening for all of the reasons mentioned above. It wouldn't be especially easy with a looper either, especially considering Adam's lack of regular use of one (as far as any of us can tell)

Is there really such a thing as that nano guitar Blair used to talk about? Any chance that's on CV?

So I was able to get tickets to the October 20th show. How early should I get there if I want to get a signed poster? How many do they usually have? Also this will be my first Tool concert!!! :)

Thanks haha. I got super lucky yesterday. I was checking the AXS app and all the sudden two lower level seats popped up for face value.

Signed poster timing varies from show to show. Often, there will only be one (maybe 2) merch stands that will get them. And it's usually about an 1 - 1.5 hours before showtime. You'll want to look for where a random line is forming off to the side or around one of the merch stands. And don't be surprised when the people running the booths turn out to really not have any clue about when the posters will come out or even which stand they will go to. Not sure how many actually come out. Maybe 100-200? Someone else here may know.

/have 4 of them from various shows
