this argument can go on all night...it's about preference...there's no right answer...some people tend to like excitement and energy on stage (which includes mess ups, improvs, whatever else)....rather than a band that can stick every note and make you think you're listening to a studio recording while watching movie screens in the background. Again, to each their own. I have nothing against Tool...
I completely agree man... myself, I've seen Tool live, and I found it extremely boring. The four of them just stood on stage in silhouette, you couldn't even see them play their instruments. I thought I was the only one that found them this boring so I'm glad to see I'm not entirely alone. I don't think Radiohead is exactly the most exciting live band either, though their mixing up of the setlists can be fun. To each his own of course.
But with that said, I'm not being the troll of the thread here, I really want to see them again and I think this announcement is great news. At the time that I saw them, I also was not at all a fan of their music, and that has since changed quite a bit. I would gladly see them this summer if given the chance. OSL would be awesome.

Why has no one brought up the fact that we might have a chance of hearing brand new material on this tour since they're working on the next album?
And Nirvana isn't even in the same class as Tool. Sillybears.
Distinct possibility, but that would be surprise me more than if they played the same shit again with one or two changes at most. I know Adam and Justin are writing shit as I type, but you know the pace that they do shit at. It's never rushed. I can see them bringing back something like The Grudge with some new twist or intro and we would all go " Fuck. Jesus. What a Monster of a song. Forgot about that one. Christ Almighty." Flood was out of control at Bonnaroo and Nokia.
