Danny Carey Performs in “Psychic Energy” Bodysuit at Tool Show in Paris

Danny Carey sported a new look during Tool’s recent show (June 5th) in Paris, as the drummer wore a form-fitting glow-in-the-dark bodysuit in the style of artist Alex Grey’s “Psychic Energy System” artwork.

Grey is a longtime Tool collaborator, having designed the artwork for Lateralus and 10,000 Days. Carey’s bodysuit was created by Jacob Roanhaus, who also fabricated a similar suit showing a muscular system akin to the Lateralus album cover that Carey sported a few months ago.

Tool shared a brief video of Carey performing in the “Psychic Energy System” suit on Instagram, with fans commenting that the outfit reminded them of Marvel’s Thanos and Infinity Stones, and others remarking that it had a Tron vibe. However, as seen below, it appears to be a direct homage to Grey’s 1980 Psychic Energy System painting, which falls more in line with the chakra system.

The Paris concert fell in the midst of Tool’s current UK/European tour, which runs through a June 27th show in Oslo, Norway (tickets available here).

The outing marks the end of a long run of tour dates for singer Maynard James Keenan, who recently completed an outing featuring his bands A Perfect Circle and Puscifer. The vocalist has stated that he will turn his focus on writing new music for all three bands once his touring obligations wrap up.
