Fortunately for me I was able to photograph Tool at Capital One Arena in DC recently. Whoa. What an amazing show! Both musically and visually stunning. Psychedelic, progressive hard rock at its finest. A bit challenging for a photographer, but so much nervous excitement. I had not seen Tool since the late 90s. Completely blew my mind.
Tool are still touring the US in support of their fifth studio album, Fear Inoculum. Check the Official Tool Website for remaining tour dates and tickets. Continue reading below for more photos of their performance in DC. All images copyright and courtesy of Andy Jillson.
After a long wait, Tool have released Fear Inoculum, and are also finally releasing the album on vinyl. Pre-orders for the “Ultra Deluxe LP” are sold out on many sites; however, copies may still be available through amazon and/or VMP.
Tool is definitely a must-see artist for fans of progressive music. If you’re unfamiliar with their music I urge you to start listening. Continue scrolling for more images of Tool performing live at Capital One Arena in Washington, DC on 2/22/2022. Enjoy!
