TOOL did “Opiate”! TOOL did “Opiate”! I was freakin out. Never thought I’d hear it live. They also did “Sweat” off the EP. TOOL is very important to me & the performance tonight was everything I ever wanted at one of their shows. Thanks @rockontherange . I survived! #rockontherange #opiate #tool #toolband
