Tool play “Eulogy” for first time since 2001

Posted by on May 26, 2017

Tool kicked off their 2017 tour on Wednesday, and if you were expecting some new tracks, well, you’re going to be disappointed, at least so far. However, they played Hershey, PA last night, and busted out a song they hadn’t played in 16 years. “Eulogy,” a high point of 1996’s Aenima written in part as a tribute to late comic Bill Hicks, was welcomed back into their setlist for the first time since George W. Bush was president. It’s hard to believe that it’s been so long since the band played the song, but given that they haven’t exactly been touring a ton in recent years, it’s believable. The whole song hasn’t surfaced on video yet, but here’s a snippet of it. Hopefully they’ll continue to play the song on the rest of their tour. Check the tour dates after the clip.
