Ask any hardcore Tool fan, and they’ll tell you that visual documentations of the band in any form are pretty few and far between. The group has never released a DVD of any of their shows and but for some snippets from their 1993 tour in support of the "Undertow" album, no pro-shot footage of the band has ever surfaced. Fans hoping for a glimpse of the band, however, may be in part satisfied by the fact that fan filmed video of their entire January 14th performance in Reno has now been posted online.
As Banana 101.5 notes, although the show contained no new Tool material, it did feature some surprise inclusions from the band’s back catalogue, including an opening rendition of "Hooker With A Penis" from 1996’s "Ӕnima" record. The full set list is as follows:
01. Hooker With A Penis 02. Jambi 03. Stinkfist 04. Ticks & Leeches 05. Pushit 06. Schism 07. Intension 08. Forty-Six & 2 09. Lateralus 10. The Pot 11. Ænima
Tool are currently working on the follow up to 2006’s "10,000 Days" album, although as front man Maynard James Keenan has noted, the band is not keen to commit on a release date at this stage:
"Even if [the band] told me how close they are to being done, I couldn't tell you because if I say 60 percent people will start counting down... They write forever and then we go in and knock it all out."
Three dates remain of Tool’s current North American tour, and they are as follows:
01/29 - Camden, NJ - Susquehanna Bank Center 01/31 - Uncasville, CT - Mohegan Sun Arena 02/08 - Duluth, GA - Gwinnett Arena
