Maynard James Keenan and crew rocked the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium last night to a sold out crowd with a nearly 2-hour set that included classics like, 'Intolerance', from their first full-length album released in 1993, Undertow. MJK asked how many from the crowd were under 21 just before kicking into the song and joked that they hadn't been born yet when the song had been written.
The stage show was heavy on some great visuals across several screens and the addition of a laser show throughout points of the concert as well. Here's a clip of 'Vicarious' that shows some of the lasers and trippy videos that kicks in around the 1-minute mark:
