Watch Tool Cover ‘No Quarter’ Dressed as Led Zeppelin

Monster Mash gig in Tempe on Halloween marks band’s first and only gig of 2015

Tool‘s only scheduled tour date of 2015 – a headlining set at Tempe, Arizona’s Monster Mash – happened to fall on Halloween, so the dormant group celebrated the occasion by resurrecting their cover of Led Zeppelin‘s “No Quarter” onstage for the first time since 1998. Not only did the Lateralus crew dust off the Houses of the Holy classic, the group did it in full costume as Maynard James Keenan performed the song as Robert Plant, with the rest of Tool similarly donning Zeppelin-era clothing, Stereogum reports.

Tool’s Monster Mash gig marked the first show by the full band since March 2014 – the members of Tool did reconvene sans Keenan Friday night for a VIP warm-up gig in Tempe – and the only concert the group has planned for the foreseeable future. In the meantime, Keenan will tour in support of Puscifer‘s new LP Money Shot, work on his upcoming authorized biography and possibly work on Tool’s first album since 2006’s 10,000 Days.

“They’re working hard in their own way; I’m working hard in my own way, and I’ve got nothin’ for ya,” Keenan told Rolling Stone of his band mates’ progress on the new Tool album.
