Showing my age but I remember seeing Tool when they were relatively new. Saw them for the Undertow tour back in the early 90's  8)

And all of us younger fans are super jealous you can say that.

I’ve seen them multiple times on each tour since the Undertow era. It’s cool to be able to say I saw them in the early days, but seeing them these days is a whole different experience, better in every way.

Unfortunately never saw them way back in the day but I've seen them three times in the past 10 years.  The last time I saw them was a few summers ago at the Gorge, which is a massive outdoor amphitheater on the Columbia River in Eastern Washington.  It was something special.

I believe I also saw Tool for the Opiate ep. they might’ve been the opening band. My memory is fuzzy from that point in time

@BloodnThunder The Gorge would be a fantastic venue.  My two bucket list concert venue’s would be Red Rocks and the Gorge with the right band for each.

There have been some great live albums recorded at each of those locations.

Would love to see Tool at Red Rocks.  I saw Slipknot and Lamb of God at Red Rocks a few years ago.  Great show, but I know Tool would be better.

@BloodnThunder This is too coincidental,as I too was at Red Rocks a few years ago when Slipknot was at Red Rocks. Only thing was I was in the gift shop and this guy comes in and he looks like he's in a band,so I ask him and he tells me he's the singer for Slipknot,to which I say you must look forward to the drum solo at this altitude,and he says no way the drummer can do a solo. Got to hear them soundcheck. The sound was amazing even from outside the venue. They did Back in Black at the soundcheck.

@Jett129 Crazy!  Yeah Corey Taylor is a pretty unassuming looking person outside of all the tattoos.  He's not the tallest guy that's for sure.  Crazy that he was just wandering around outside the venue.

Because of all the ink, and the fact that all the tour buses were parked there made me roll the dice and ask him. I was hoping he was a drummer.

Tool is sadly way too big for Red Rocks. It is an incredible venue and I'm privileged to go there a lot. The gorge is at least as beautiful but it's hard to beat the sound at Red Rocks.
Think it, be it.

How is Tool too big for Red Rocks? Phish used to play there all the time (maybe they still do?) and they have a massive following.

Red Rocks only has a capacity of 9.5k. It is remarkable that the Dead played there in 1978 when they had been filling 50k+ capacity stadiums for almost a decade, and I'd not expect anyone doing that again.

Phish now plays a soccer stadium when they come to Denver (Dick's Sporting Goods Park) that holds 27,000 and sells three nights out to the extent that secondary market tickets were selling for well over $500 this year, so the demand simply cannot reasonably fit into RR. Either band would be leaving money on the table and letting a lot of fans down by playing RR. I would think Tool would go for at least the Pepsi Center at 18k if not Dick's, which they could easily sell out IMO, particularly since they are not only popular but tour infrequently. Phish should probably be playing Mile High these days (50k).

Tool is also known for choosing venues based on location and sound quality. I could see them doing a two or three night stretch at Red Rocks.  A few years ago A Perfect Circle did that at The Showbox here in Seattle (capacity is 1,150).  APC played their three albums cover to cover (one album each night).  The next time I saw them was a year or two later and they sold out Key Arena (capacity = 17,459).

I'd love it if they did and I got tickets, but they've already announced Pepsi Center for the Denver stop. Only time I've seen either Tool or APC have been 10k± venues in recent years and the scarcity of Tool tours and the fact that they've probably only grown more fans over the years makes a RR show something they'd have to all have a huge boner to do because it would take so much money out of their pockets. I would imagine it would be hard to get the group to agree to something like that. Think about how many people that impacts when you include their whole crew.
