Maynard James Keenan wore drag to protest FL law at Tool’s Welcome to Rockville set
UPDATE: Maynard says wearing drag at Tool's Welcome to Rockville set "had nothing to do with Florida" - "I'm not a political fella."
Florida is one of multiple states that have passed laws targeting drag shows, and when Tool stopped in the state on Sunday to headline Welcome to Rockville, frontman Maynard James Keenan dressed in drag (as he has before) in protest, wearing a wig, makeup, and fake breasts.
Welcome to Rockville is an all-ages event, making Keenan's outfit technically in violation of the new law. See more pictures from the set on Revolver, and their setlist, along with attendee-taken video, below.
Tool have more festival dates coming up, including Power Trip, Lower Than Life, Aftershock, and Sonic Temple. See all of their upcoming dates below.
Pick up Tool vinyl in the BV store.
