Maynard James Keenan helped give a proper sendoff to Tool‘s opening band with an onstage prank.

The group Blonde Redhead, who’d been supporting Tool for the band month on their U.S. tour, played their final show with Keenan and company last week in Miami. To mark the occasion, Keenan invaded Blonde Redhead’s set to dance around while wearing a blonde wig, surrounded by others wearing red wigs.

Blonde Redhead‘s vocalist Kazu Makino shared footage from the prank in an Instagram Story, which was later re-posted by Keenan. In the caption, Makino wrote, “[Tool] making a point of our last show…this is how I look when I’m stunned.”

Keenan himself is a big fan of Blonde Redhead — ahead of the tour, he shared a long Instagram post explaining why he picked the band specifically to be Tool’s opener.

Tool’s tour is set to continue February 19 in Boston with support from The Acid Helps.
