Notes: Nice recording. Solid, smooth & relatively distraction-free; the taper did a fine job in regards to capturing the mood of the evening. Many people apparently had issue with the fact that Tool did not perform a new setlist this evening however this was the first time, of this tour, Tool had come to this part of North America. The performance itself seems to be rather laid back, not so intense & comfortable. If there is indication that Tool is anything like Pink Floyd in certain areas, then you would want to listen to the entirity of this source. Honestly, this source should arguably not sound as nicely as it does. There are limitations in comparison with similar recordings from this tour however, for this particular performance, it would be rather difficult to beat this recording. If I had to give an arbitrary rating, I would give it a conservative: 8.5/10 --- this is quite good for a CSB>HiMD source.

Maynardism: "Thanks uh, thanks a lot for coming down - appreciate it. OK. So, uh, Danny's hi-hat broke so that means I have to tell you a story, not sure which one though, oh wait, here's one: How do you get a dog to stop humping your leg? Pick it up & suck it's dick? That wasn't a joke though. Adam, help me, I'm dying here, but seriously, thanks a lot for coming down & I'm sure we'll be coming back around in the new year. And if you come back again next year it'll be because we're armed & have come for your oil. So uh look for me in those thousands & thousands of storm troopers coming in here to take your oil. I suggest you buy our country while your dollar is still strong - feel free to purchase use. Every man has his price. We apologize for our President, once again, sorry. I thought leaving that flaming bag of dog shit on his doorstep would help but I'm still on probation."
