Tool in Concert at PPG Paints Arena (Tues., 3/1/22)

In 2019 Tool released its first album in 13 years: Fear Inoculum. Some tracks top 10 minutes, but the prog-rock arrangements are captivating, so they feel more like a medley of two or three different tunes. The mysterious alt-metal quartet has always shied from the spotlight. The band members rarely appear in their music videos. In fact, most of their videos opt strictly for stop-motion animation. They were also one of the last streaming holdouts, but you can now find all their music on services such as Spotify. Vocalist Maynard James Keenan, who also fronts A Perfect Circle and Puscifer, often performs wearing Kabuki masks, wigs, or other guises. Tool formed in Los Angeles in 1990. The group’s first album was 1993’s Undertow. 10,000 Days, their previous album, was released in 2006. Tool comes to PPG Paints Arena. The Acid Helps opens. 7:30 p.m. 1001 Fifth Ave., Uptown. (C. Maggio)
