Primus Rush tribute tour

Roughly one year since it was posptoned, Primus have now announced rescheduled dates for their "A Farewell to Kings" Rush tribute tour. The trek will now take place this summer/fall, with the current itinerary listed below.

With support from Wolfmother and The Sword (on select dates), the trek will feature Primus performing the Rush's 1977 album A Farewell to Kings each night in addition to select cuts from their own catalog.

Primus frontman Les Claypool comments: "Finally, the clouds are parting, the planets are aligning, the dough is rising…whatever metaphor floats your preverbal boat, Primus is going on tour again. We were poised and ready for a massive, bent-rock extravaganza when the gremlins of Covid came and yanked the rug out from under us all. I personally have been climbing the walls like a shit-house rat and, after my first season off in 30 some odd years, I'm very anxious and excited to stand in front of the microphone with my four string piece of furniture and belt out some girthy ditties to sweaty throngs of punters."
