Thousands of music lovers gathered this weekend in Jacksonville FL, for the 3-day music festival Welcome To Rockville. If you were one of the lucky people to weather the rain delays and canceled sets you probably had one of the best weekends of your life. Fans got to see Judas Priest perform several songs that have never been played live before. They got to see Skillet perform a new song “Legendary”. (WATCH IT HERE) But most notable would be Tool kicking off their Spring tour in Jacksonville and performing not 1 but 2 new tracks, Invincible and Descending.
Rain delays kept gates from opening till 3:30 and many fans wondered what sets would be cut short of if some bands would play at all. At 1;17 Rockville took to their official Facebook page to announce they have been working with the City Of Jacksonville and would be allowed to continue the show past curfew and the show would go on. Gates finally opened at 3:30 with Grandson taking the Riverstage at 3:55. Thought serveral of the earlier acts like While She Sleeps and The The Glorious Sons had their sets cut from the day, Tool was set to perform at 10:35. Watch the fan-filmed videos below and let us know what you think about the 2 new Tool tracks, Invincible & Descending.
