Location: Wembley, UK


Well this was an awesome night - It was Glazy's Birthday so the 4 of us decided to go and see Tool at Wembley Arena. It's a bit of a treck to get from our house in Fulham to Wembley - ended up taking about 1 and a half hours to get there, but it was well worth it. Anybody who has seen Tool in Concert would know how good their stage show is, and this one did

One thing I am starting to get used to over here is the scalpers. Every concert we go to there are at least about 20 guys outside flogging off tickets at twice the price. Theres always a few dodgy poms selling rip off merchandise as well.

Mastodon was the support band and they were on first - not really my cup of tea - very heavy with lots of yelling, so I was pretty glad when they finished.

After the show we had the drama of getting home along with the 5000 other people trying to get home. Luckily we managed to get the last tube home and made it all the way. The underground stops usually at about midnight, so if you miss the last tube you have the drama of hunting down a bus or catching a cab which always cost and arm and a leg!
