A dozen shows into the group's current North American tour, TOOL have already come across several obstacles, including technical problems, an injury, and at least one protest against the group. Still, "the current tour is continuing smoothly for the most part," as a message on the band's official website reads.The post further explains: "Apart from a power outage in Wichita which threatened to cancel the show, a bus driver with a broken arm (who is valiantly continuing to protect and serve the band, one handed as he may be), a few near-disasters with wardrobe (luckily all the band members have been fully-clothed for all of the shows so far, except Maynard [James Keenan] of course), and a small band of religious fanatics who attempted to threaten the show in Fort Worth (which made it even better...), all is well."
