Wow, just fucking wow...
Seeing Tool live had been on my musical bucket list for almost as long as I can remember, they were my white whale. They were a band that hadn’t disbanded but due to many reasons weren’t touring, but that changed last year, when they
...one of the best nights of my life.
I didn’t want to write about this concert because I felt it would be a review way too personal, but then I thought ‘fuck it, when I’m old and senile I can re-read this, and think about the best night of my life’.
A heavyweight effort from an amazing band.
Back in June, we saw A Perfect Circle live and I was blown away by an amazing performance, and had said afterwards that only Tool or Slipknot could top that for me. Well, I like to think Crossfaith read that and said "Hold my beer" before heading out to the stage last Friday night as they did what I thought wasn't possible. They outshined Maynard James Keenan and every other act I've seen this year, and made it look easy.
A great show that had it all.
It’s been 16-17 years since I first listened to A Perfect Circle’s Mer de Noms and decided I need to see the band that created this amazing music. And only now have I finally completed that mission, but like the old phrase “good things come to those who wait” I definitely did my time here and was rewarded with one of the best shows I’ve ever seen in my life. Only two bands have a chance of topping this: Slipknot and Tool.
I love the theatre but sadly I don’t go nowhere near enough. I've enjoyed every time I've gone to see a show, some more, like The Book of Mormon or The Lion King, some a little less like Dreamgirls. Only one bored me shitless so far: The Phantom of the Opera - I know, it’s not something you hear everyday, but my brain is wired different.
Regardless of my level of fondness for a show, there is always something special about the whole experience. The performers singing, dancing, acting and interacting with the audience, the way they draw you in. It’s no surprise big Hollywood stars that started on Broadway say they prefer it over filming a movie. It’s safe to say Young Frankenstein is one of the shows I had fun with the most.
