Tool have several shows coming up, and just played the Aftershock Festival this past Saturday. While there’s still no update on a new album, and no new material was played, the band did jam on one of their first songs, “Opiate,” giving it an extended bridge (see below). And while many probably couldn’t tell the difference, drummer Danny Carey played the show against his doctor’s orders while suffering from a staph infection that guitarist Adam Jones called “very serious.”
Great crowd at #AfterShock festival. Thank you Sacramento‼️ I truly have to respect Mr #DannyCareywho played the entire show with a very serious Staph Infection. At first on Friday morning he was misdiagnosed with a poisonous spider bite on his upper leg. Then later Friday night the quarter sized wound was cut opened & drained. By Saturday DC was still aching from head to toe & from what I heard the Local Doctor recommended we skip the show. But Dan with headaches & painful joints played anyway..
All of that sounds pretty horrible, and hopefully the band’s show tonight in Utah will go on as planned. In the meantime, this is what they sounded like on Saturday
