Shed - The Tool Tribute recreate a set-list of anthems from American prog-rock titans Tool. With support from special guests Pull Down the Sun, A Thought That Came to Mind, and Dhawk, prepare youself for a night of Alternative Rock and Metal epicness.
The early 90's were an interesting era in the Los Angeles music scene, with many music fans growing weary of the over-used hair-metal mantra that had defined the 80's. Groups such as Tool offered an alternative; a highly innovative species of heavy rock based on musicality and raw emotion. With the commercial success of groups such as Alice in Chains, Nirvana and Soundgarden, the platform was set for Tool to take to the world stage. They continue to sell out arenas to this day.
As fanatical fans themselves, Shed have left no stone un-turned in recreating an eloquent rendition of Tool's powerful sound. Pull Down the Sun (Whanganui), A Thought That Came to Mind (Wellington) and Dhawk (New Plymouth) will offer a mind-blowing display of home grown prog-metal creativity; the perfect accompaniment to the utopian odyssey that is the music of Tool.
