If you were to suggest that 2019 was the year of Tool — the beloved nü-metal band of millennial boyfriends everywhere — you would not be wrong. The Maynard James Keenan-led outfit released its first album in 13 years, the critically acclaimed Fear Inoculum in August, just a month after the band released its entire catalog on streaming services so that millennial boyfriends could now force their personal theses as to why Tool is the sonic equivalent to opium on their unsuspecting millennial girlfriends. The power of the millennial boyfriend is strong, too. Following the digital release of their catalog, Tool albums racked up more than 20 million streams in the 48 hours that followed, and 1996’s Ænima even landed at No. 10 on the Billboard Top 200 charts.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 9, at Little Caesars Arena; 2645 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-471-7000; 313presents.com. Tickets are $150+ verified resale.
