This may, or may not, be what Tool have in store for us when they get to El Paso in February.

Tool are finally making their way back to the Sun City, performing February 7th in the Don Haskins Center. Their first show here since 2006. (Get tix)

Maynard has, of course, been here 3 or 4 times over the years with A Perfect Circle and Puscifer. The later being the latest, rocking the 'Chavez in 2002.

The ... eccentric, shall we say ... Maynard James Keenan will bring his first, and arguably "best" band to El Paso in February and I have two important questions.

First, are cell phones allowed at the Tool concert?

During one of Maynard's past visits, I think it was with A Perfect Circle, a bar near the Don Haskins Center became sort of a refugee camp for peeps thrown out of the show for filming with their cameras. That may happen again ...

It also appears Tool's policy against usage of cell phones during their shows is still in effect as one person in attendance notes in a video clip of "Pneuma" that was uploaded to YouTube.

This fan says the video was taken "before the camera spotter made me put my phone away." - Loudwire  

Second - What songs will Tool play?

SPOILER ALERT: If this list is correct, it may ruin any surprises for you. IF they do this very same set here in El Chuco that is ...

01. "Fear Inoculum"
02. "Jambi"
03. "Rosetta Stoned" (Lost Keys intro)
04. "Pneuma"
05. "Intolerance"
06. "Descending"
07. "The Grudge"


08. "Chocolate Chip Trip"
09. "Culling Voices"
10. "Invincible"
11. "Stinkfist" - setlist

Bummer ... I was hoping for 46 and 2 and/or Sober. No luck though, unless this changes, which it very well might.

Bands adjust sets all the time and some of them, looking at you Metallica, deliberately DON'T play the same show twice.

That list is from the very first show of Tool's tour, they have plenty of time to tweak things before they get to us February 7th.
