The Los Angeles band played at the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan on Thursday night (March 3) as part of their COVID-delayed 2022 world tour, which kicked off in January.

Midway through the 12-song setlist, Tool surprised the crowd by playing the title track from their debut studio album for the first time since April 2022 (via Setlist.FM). Tool didn’t perform ‘Undertow’ at their next concert in Columbus, Ohio last night (March 6).

Tool’s current tour was postponed by almost two years, with the band having shelved their live plans when the pandemic hit in March 2020.

During their first show back on January 10, the group dusted off a handful of songs that hadn’t been performed live for a number of years. ‘Pushit’ and ‘Hooker With A Penis’ hadn’t appeared on the setlist since 2014, and ‘Right In Two’ since 2011.
