Tool treated fans to a visually breathtaking night of dystopian art-rock spectacle in Glendale on Wednesday, bringing their tour in support of "Fear Inoculum," their first release in 13 years, to Gila River Arena for a sold-out show that served as testament to their enduring cult appeal. Setting the tone with the hypnotic drama of the title track that opens that new album, the musicians took their place behind a curtain made of dangling chains and allowed the trance-inducing song to wash over the fans, who roared in approval at the song's conclusion.

At a time when we're constantly told that the 21st Century has no use for albums, Tool returned from 13 years of silence with a headphone record that demands to be experienced in full. At one point, Keenan crept across the stage while Jones was soloing and made off with one of his speaker cabinets, taking it back to his perch at the back of the stage, where he sat on it, dangling his feet.

While Invincible also being referred to as Warrior online placed Danny Carey's drumming at centre stage — set to a swirling backdrop of psychedelic projections and lasers — the distinctive Descending played out in front of a lurid, arid desertscape. Below is a full list of what Tool played on the opening night of their European tour, and what you might expect if you're heading to catch them live. The Pot 3.
