Considering I haven't seen them there yet, it tops my list. The only place I'd rather see them is a small theater-type venue a la the '06 warm up leg.
The sound, crowd, and atmosphere would all be better than a typical Tool arena show, imo.

That said, I'd also go back to see them on the farm again too.

Some bands like Tool are just superior in their own element when compared with festivals. I've had plenty of bands disappoint me at Coachella. The Lateralus tour stop @ The Wiltern was superior to what I saw at the Coachella performance.

That was my first Coachella, and Tool was pretty much my favorite band at the time. For a while I'd given up hope that they'd ever record or tour again, so my level of anticipation for that set was unmatched. I'd also avoided the album leaks of 10,000 days so I was hearing all of their new materiel live for the first time. Have they given better performances, played better setlists? Sure, probably, whatever. But that is and will probably always be my favorite Coachella performance.

Yeah, I've seen them in "their element" plenty. I'd rather have a full day of awesome music leading up to their set with additional options after their set. Not to mention being on vacation, rather than a Tuesday night show downtown. And fuck, they're all about getting outside the comfort zone, so throw them in front of some non-fans.

And Massive Attack opening for them is/was pretty fucking awesome if you ask me. I'd rather have them than any opener Tool has ever had. (sorry Meshuggah)

Massive Attack was an amazing opener. I didn't personally hear anyone boo them but it's hardly surprising. Every year I encounter drunk, high, inconsiderate douchebags at the festival. It just happens that in 2006 a number of them were yelling TOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL! I doubt any of the members of Massive Attack lost any sleep over it. They're a UK band, and it was probably a nice change of pace not having the hecklers throw urine at them.

Less time for sets, not enough transition time between equipment changes for bands, sometimes tech problems with visuals/soundcheck. Having seen some of the main headliners and smaller bands at smaller venues and Coachella, there are definitely some performances that felt a little more disorganized at the festival.

I mean, Gorillaz for fuck's sake was a nightmare, then I saw them later that year at the Gibson with all of the guests who were supposed to perform with them at Coachella, it was a show you just didn't want to end in addition to it not getting cut off on a somber note.

What if he's only got 4 reasons, but they're really good reasons.

I can honestly think of at least two dozen examples of bands I've seen in both settings, whose festival performances were superior to their solo venue shows.

Let me preface by saying it wasn't my personal favorite, but I could make a legitimate case for it.

1. Longest setlist since '01.
2. Most talkative I've ever seen Maynard, he was fucking with the crowd between every song.
3. Tom Morello coming out and delivering what I'm sure most consider the most talked about live version of Lateralus. He answered a god damn phone during his solo.
4. Frying your face off, turning around and seeing the lasers go further than yours eyes could see.
5. The Roots opened.
6. After the show you could mosey on over and watch John Paul Jones play Zepplin tunes with ?uestlove on the drum kit. And if that's not your thing, The Black Keys and The Flaming Lips were also playing.

Always.

While that may be generally/mostly true there's plenty of exceptions. Some acts really step up their game if it's pivitol appearance/media exposure, they have guests, have unique production or certain setlist variation.

For me it's much more of a case by case basis and where they are on the festival schedule. Yet another reason to hate GV policy of releasing it a couple dozen hours before the festival begins.

I could also name a handful of acts where I actually prefer SHORTER sets(Bob Dylan...)

while i agree that the festival dates make Tool seem possible (and for the same reasons i suspect Danzig Legacy will play), Lolla is much more the kind of festival for Deftones, and they even put them on the 3rd stage from 5-6pm, and before Beats Antique. I don't see GV giving them a Subheadliner slot, or even main stage. Closing Mojave, or late afternoon Outdoor maybe.. but yeah, i think Maynard is going to pull triple duty.

No way would GV book an act twice on the same tour and TOOL have zero known confirmed new songs since the 2006 album. Last report I heard 3 of them had material but MJK hadn't provided any lyrics. MJK got bored of Tool quite some time ago and it pays for his other interests.

I don't mind Oceania either, but the whole thing taking up 60+ mins of a setlist, and then not even doing an entire set after that was just brutal. I've still yet to see this band even though they have been around a few times since 07.

(-) Ions is pretty much played nightly still to this date as an intro to Stinkfist.. albeit shortened and in playback/tape form. Stuff like Useful Idiot and Msg to Harry Manback live would be pretty much pointless, though.

Frankly, I like Oceania. But I also liked Zeitgeist more than any of their albums since Mellon Collie.. but i wouldn't wanna pay to see the Oceania set + encore, unless it was a festival, which would mean a very short encore.

I'm positive i have a jimmy live bootleg somewhere, but i was thinking (-) Ions or Cesaro Summability or Die Eier von Satan (the last they prob did on that albums tour though)..they don't do Third Eye often, and that's my fav song ever. Live, and at the Polo. that would be a coachella moment.

They opened with Third Eye almost every date on the tour before last. I know it wasn't played much before that, but it's not exactly a rare song anymore...

when they popped this in Honolulu back in 2011 I was TRRRRRRRRRIP'N Balls on some White Rhino Mush. The Timothy Leary intro really dragged me in! I really hope they show.

I've been saying 12-22-12 for awhile now, but here is evidence that it's not even recorded yet, which I believe to be true. This was posted 10-06-12.

"Former Isis singer/guitarist Aaron Turner gave a tidbit of Tool news in a new interview, from FourthEye.net:

Interview with Aaron Turner a few nights ago on RRR radio. They asked him what albums he was looking forward to in 2013. He mentioned Tool and the interviewer commented on the massive gap of nothingness since 10,000 Days. Turner replied that he had heard it from the band themselves that they are looking to start recording the new album in January / February."

Tool and Isis are at least somewhat close. I remember them opening for Tool back around 2006 at Staples Center.

April 30th, 2006 at the Polo Fields. Next question.

MJK started getting involved with wineries sometime around 2003/2004, starting as a minority partner then strating his own winery from scratch(takes a couple years). Since then he's asked his agent to keep most of April open, which should include Coachella.

2003 - Lolla summer dates(APC)
2004 - initially kept half of April open, but did shuffle some dates because of his voice. April 11/12/13/14/15 were still left open.
2005 - off year
2006 - Tool tour starts at Coachella April 30th
2007 - Tool end in Japan in Feb. Tool starts again in Vegas April 27th
2008 - off year
2009 - Puscifer do Vegas in Feb and LA Nokia April 4/5, then full tour in Nov. Tool shows in summer.
2010 - Puscifer ends tour April 3. Tool in summer. APC tour in November
2011 - Tool finished Pacific rim in Feb. APC starts May 22. Puscifer in Fall
2012 - Tool US ends in Feb 8. Puscifer Feb 23 - March 18. Tool/Puscifer St. Paul festival in June.
2013 - Tool Japan May 12

After 2004 he hasn't played between April 5th and April 27th. There's some crucial period in April where you have to be on your winery in Arizona or you can lose your entire crop to frost. In other words, the chances of Puscifer playing Stagecoach are much higher than Tool/APC ever appearing at Coachella again as long as he owns that winery.

I think it was just thrown around in this thread, so nothing official.

Whatever "announcement" is coming on January 5th probably has nothing to do with a new album - from Blair's November newsletter: "Yet another reason to watch the site is that while at a Lakers' game a couple of weeks ago, an oracle told me to expect lots of news in the coming weeks. So far, nothing much has come my way, but when it does... I don't think it will have anything to do with TOOL's NEXT RECORD (gotcha!), as they are still involved in the writing process (which I already said). Nor will it be about any stocking stuffer TOOL LIVE DVD (gotcha again!), which I haven't heard anything about for eons. What this news will be about, however, should be exciting to many Tool enthusiasts."

"Popular progressive metal band Tool are apparently more than halfway done with the writing of their upcoming album.

Tool's official website, toolband.com, was able to listen to a few new songs. According to the author, the songs did not include vocals from singer Maynard James Keenan. However, he went on to describe the songs by saying that "it sounded like... Tool (some of it reminiscent to earlier Tool stuff, with other parts pushing the envelope)".

The author also mentioned that the writing process usually goes faster "once the first few [more complex] songs were finished"."

Just to be sure, nobody told you that there is a "good chance" of an album release in first quarter 2013 or Coachella, right? You're just extrapolating that from being told an album, without lyrics, is in the process of being recorded?

Even if lyrics and all vocals were complete as of today(wishful thinking), I don't think they could get a release out before Coachella W1. For one they do things at a snail's pace, they need to co-ordinate all first week sales promotions(30-40% of all sales on 10k Days in the US) and their management sure as hell wouldn't be booking non-headline gigs to promote it.
