Review written by: Quadrax (joe@homail.com) Review posted on: 07/30/97 13:29:04 Tool was awesome. Maynard came out on stage with his body painted. His left side was red and his right side was black. I have to say this was my first tool concert and it was the best concert I have ever been too. If you want to see a show you have to see tool in concert.

I had gotten a media pass and was hanging out in the press tent all day. I came out to see tool and everyone was standing on the benches they had in the in the general ad mission area. I had to squeeze my way up onto a bench. After about five minutes some stupid ass decided I didnt deserve the spot I had so he decided to push me over and everyone fell over then that started a big thing of pushing and trying to get up on the benches. then TOOL came on I just wanted to watch the show so got down and tried to stand in the front. So now I can't see the band and all the people started jumping on my head puting their elbows in my back . So I go up on the crowd. I went up on the crowd two more times with no problem. Then a security gaurd decided I was too rowdy and chicken winged me then passed me to a local cop who then decided to bend my wrist the wrong way so I wouldn't struggle until I was out of the venue. I only got to hear three songs. From what I could hear from outside the venue Tool put on a good show and I had gotten to stay I woulld have enjoyed myself. So everyone thank Val Du Lakes for kicking out a member of the press and a damn good TOOL fan. I didn't get to hear flood :(

It was actually in Mears, not Grand Rapids. --Setlist-- Hooker With A Penis Stinkfist Forty Six & 2 Prison Sex Eulogy Third Eye Sober Opiate AEnima
