Tool out on tour: Playing Hamilton's First Ontario Centre

Fans of Tool, and there are many of us, have been waiting an eternity in modern musical terms for their next album, and for almost as long for live dates. Well, one of those gaping holes in our souls is being filled by live dates. Check them all out here.

The one that's most exciting for my fellow Southern Ontarians is the show in Hamilton at the First Ontario Centre on May 31. I've been lucky enough to see this band twice, once at Toronto's Warehouse in 1996 and again in 1997 at Lollapalooza in Toronto. It's an absolutely amazing experience to hear their tunes cranked out at full concert volume.

Just a trio of my favourite Tool songs that I hope to hear at this show:

"Forty Six & 2"

"Prison Sex"
