Tuesday night, as expected, the hordes of metal heads who packed into the Spokane Arena received a full-on sensory overload as Tool kicked off its national tour. The show continued the venue's streak of bringing in exciting acts to the area.

The tour itself wasn't realized as a promotional tactic for a new album; rather, a chance for Tool to please its many fans with the tried and true material. That couldn’t have been more apparent in Tuesday night's show.

Representatives from Spin and Rolling Stone even showed up to review the party.

From RS:

Tool fans the world over patiently wait for the foursome to deliver its long-gestating new studio album. While the writing and recording process for the that work has now stretched to eight years, the band has remained relevant by putting on some of music's most awe-inspiring and visually stunning live events, which is exactly what they did last night in Spokane.

The set list was as follows:

"Hooker With A Penis"
"Vicarious"
"Schism"
"Pushit"
"Intension"
"Lateralus"
"Jambi"
"Forty-Six & 2"
"Ænema"
"Stinkfist"
