Chicago Open Air's 2019 edition got off to a rough start on Saturday when severe weather delayed the opening of doors, cancelling sets from Vein, Knocked Loose and Code Orange. Sunday (5/19) saw another weather-related delay to doors, but this time no one was cut from the schedule, unlike at Sonic Temple in Columbus, OH, who suffered weather issues of their own on the same day.
Tool headlined the night with a set that included the two new songs they debuted earlier this tour, "Descending" and "Invincible," both from their long-awaited new album that's due out August 30. See their setlist and watch video clips of their set below.
Sunday at Chicago Open Air also included sets from The Cult, Gojira (including guitarist Christian Andreu, who had had a close encounter with some pyrotechnics at Sonic Temple on Saturday that burned his face during the band's set), Alien Weaponry, The Black Dahlia Murder, Fever 333, and In This Moment. Check out pictures from the whole day in the gallery above.
