Tool prank Blonde Redhead

Tool gave Blonde Redhead a fun sendoff during the support act’s final show of the headliner’s current US tour. Frontman Maynard James Keenan and company sported long blonde and red-haired wigs and stormed the stage as the opening band performed on Thursday night (February 10th) in Miami.

Blonde Redhead singer-guitarist-keyboardist Kazu Makino shared video of the prank, in which Keenan and presumably his Tool bandmates and various crew members pranced and danced around the stage in the wigs as the support act kept its cool and continued performing. On her Instagram Stories, Makino wrote, “@ToolMusic making a point of our last show … this is how I look when I am stunned.”

While Blonde Redhead’s run on the tour is over, Tool’s headlining outing will continue with a second leg that launches this Saturday (February 19th) in Boston, and runs through a March 20th show in Cleveland. The Acid Helps will serve as support for the next slate of shows, with tickets available via Ticketmaster.

In addition to the prank, Keenan acknowledged Blonde Redhead in an Instagram post in which he posted a photo of himself with the band, and wrote, “It was an honor to share the stage w/ @blonderedheadofficial @twin.simo @kazu.makino @amedeopace on the first leg of this @toolmusic run. One of my (@iamthebriefcase)
favorite bands that always makes the Harvest Play list at @caduceuscellars #shoresy.”
