Watch Tool’s Maynard James Keenan Scold A Fan For Using A Phone During “Intolerance”


It’s long been policy at Tool concerts that filming is generally a no-go unless the band grant permission. It’s also long been the case that smart phones in the audience in general tend to be frowned upon by the band during their concert performances.

One individual attending the multi-platinum alternative metal band’s show at the Arena in Los Angeles, CA last night (February 14th) got a firsthand lesson in that, getting a verbal scolding from none other than the outfit’s vocalist Maynard James Keenan.

In the below clip circulating online, which seemingly was somewhat ironically filmed by someone else in attendance at the show. Maynard can be heard yelling at a fan through the mic, “Put your fucking phone away dickhead, seriously.” As if the clip being filmed by a secondhand party wasn’t ironic enough, the incident occurred while Tool will performing their 1993 track, “Intolerance“.

Tool are winding down their current U.S. run with Elder and will head overseas in the spring for a trek through Europe and the UK. Following that, the group are expected to set their focus towards crafting their next studio album.
