Notes: There are 2 versions of this recording in the trade-pool, at least on some level: the taper's original MD recording + a recording remastered by CatalystX. The CatalystX version is widely available. Interesting set list but a bit more reminiscent of the 'standard' for the Lateralus tour is. Crystal clear sound; vocals, instruments coat the cries/yells of the crowd so much that at times, it's hard to remember they are even there. It is worth to note that Maynard's vocals seem a little...odd. Like the speaker is near a fan or something; but its a very slight difference than normal. Again, this taping has absolutely no brick-walling, just an exceptionally clean recording. Blistering rendition of Triad. I saw some pictures of the Hall Deich (venue) & damn does it look small. According to the taper, this was a bit larger than the photos give credit...
Notes: Check out Maynard's quote #1 addressing, surprise-surprise, an American in the crowd who was/is acting like a twat, douche-bag, asshole and/or general fuck. Hard to believe, isn't it?
Maynardism: Good evening. This is Tool. Hopefully, you've come equipped with an open mind & hopefully, more importantly, an open heart. You from America? As our representative here, you should probably be, uh, way cooler than you are being. Because you're embarrassing us."
Maynardism: "Thank you for sharing this moment with us. Our hope is that we have served as some form to catalyst for inspiration or healing. And we would hope that you would walk away from this shared moment remembering this feeling you are having & in the coming weeks, the coming months, the coming years; use this feeling to create something positive"

"John, from Pablo playing drums. Thank you John. Thank you very much for sharing this moment with us. Our hope is that we have served as some kind of catalyst for... inspiration or healing. And we would hope that you walk away from this shared moment, remembering this feeling your having, and in the coming weeks, the coming months, the coming years, use this feeling to create something positive."
