Dunno how many of you would be interested, but yeah. They're coming next year.

How often does that happen?

Who's going?

i just saw this today. Looks like it will be a road trip for me.

Saw them in 01 when they played at Metropolis and it was awesome. They havent been back since.

I read that it was an "exclusive" canadian date, so who knows when they would ever come back. But then again, would they come all the way here and play one date? I guess we will see.

I'll try to go. Far from being my favorite band, but I like some of their songs and their shows are intense.

don't let the name/avy fool you. i'm a bigger rock fan than you'd think. beleive me i'd be going ape **** if we were talking about a TOOL show. just rammstein was like system of a down when everyone liked them in 2002. at least they were english, but i'm big on lyrics (hence my why i can appreciate REAL rap, rhyme and poetry), so rammstein, being german along their electro nu metal or wtv style never had much appeal for me.

i liked that wunderbar song though.

SOAD actually had talent though whereas Rammstein was more of a gimmick with the German lyrics. Like I said Rammstein is like Korn or possibly Slipknot.

I would also be losing it if Tool was in town.

funny that rammstein is mentioned with soad and slipknot, cuz a good 8-9 years ago i was supposed to see all 3 on halloween near boston. rammstein cancelled, still a good show for soad and slipknot though. i'm not into that genre much any longer, but rammstein is more of a novelty act than anything. their video where they superimposed their own faces onto german porn stars is hilarious. the version on youtube is basically mega pixelated cuz its so graphic. check it out if you havent seen it, lyrics are hilarious too.

soad had 1.5 good albums. self titled was intense, and toxicity they were in between their old sound, cocaine, and where they were eventually headed with their more commercial sounds with daron always whailing and harmonizing. the second i popped in Steal this Album, i was no longer a fan. i blame coke really. once upon a time, bands used to have to sound good live too...

when paying for live shows, sorry to tell you but lyrics come secondary to live performance.

I love Tool, they are a great musicians, lyrics are great, but like they are stagnant. I saw them live and almost fell asleep. Very disappointing for a band i love.

Whereas Rammstein is good on record, dont have have many great albums, but live they are incredible. So i am more inclined to be visually stimulated when i go see a show.

depends on the band for what to expect from a live performance. i've loved tool everytime i saw them because i was hearing this ****ing sick music that i've been anticipating for 5 years between their tours. and then you heard it perfectly played by the people who made it. it's not supposed to be about action. even maynard was like "STOP ****ING MOSHING".

radiohead too, you go there to blaze out and hear quality reproduction. (those crazy tube lights were effing beautiful)

something like glassjaw or death from above 79 would be something you're going to rock out and go nuts with your foot resting on the stage, and picking up the guy's mic stand.

mars volta might be something in between a live factor and a show factor.

ever been to a mute math show? they sound phenomenal and it's action packed on stage. it can be done.

bringing the "energy" from the album to the live show can definately be done. Ive been to hundreds and hundreds of shows, and in this case Rammstein really held out to me as being a live act that totally blew me away.

and no i have seen mute math.

Mars Volta are a decent studio band (not really a huge fan- i liked ATDI and Sparta better) but live...wow, just awful.

volta sounds bad live because lately they've been to town only with other acts at the bell centre. i think it was soad and rhcp. and yes, they sound horrawful! i don't think they have the equipment or technicians to sound good in an arena. also the 9 or so people on stage jamming makes a cluster**** of echo and whatever.

their show in november 05 at metropolis was amazing, and also in burlington at higher ground like 2 years ago for goliath. those are my 2 smaller venue experiences with them and i think it's really best suited for them. because admitedly, at the bell centre, i had a hard time following them, and i knew the songs, but the improv stuff can really throw you off.

and about the lyrics, i meant more they are important to why i would start liking a band or artist in the first place, just on CD. if you're going to the show, i agree it's about the action, but they need to be tight musically.

the tightest live band ever is fallout boy. LOL (no i've never been)

tool somehow manages to reproduce the compleexity of their albums very accurately. they almost shouldn't be able to do that much with 4 people. i think danny has a lot of equipment as part of his drum set and he sets off samples and effects and what not....on top of being one of the most impressive percussionnists in the world. i don't know how they manage that so well, just on the technical aspect. you would think they'd have to be a studio band with how complete the layers are, but they pull it off. i think it's also partly why they don't really monkey around on stage, they are concentrated. adam is completely absorbed in his guitar. they're all keeping their tempo cause there's like 3 different time signatures coming together all the time.

Meh I don't really like them. I guess they are much better live than most bands are today but I don't feel like driving 2 hours and getting stuck in a massive crowd that you can't escape for that.
