Primus Announce Reworked, Late-Summer ‘A Tribute to Kings’ Tour

Primus have once again reworked their tour plans, hitting the road this summer for their ‘A Tribute To Kings’ tour honoring Rush’s 1977 album A Farewell To Kings. 

“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,” wrote bassist/bandleader Les Claypool via social media. “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.”

The outing will take Primus – and support acts Wolfmother and The Sword – across the U.S., starting in Idaho on Aug. 10 and wrapping up in Phoenix on Oct. 25.

Standout dates include a previously-announced Sept. 3 gig at Bonnaroo, a Sept. 10 stop in New Orleans, a Sept. 28 gig in New York City and the tour’s lone two-night run in Denver (Oct. 21 and 22).

Due to international travel restrictions, the band has scrapped their previously scheduled Toronto dates; shows in Lafayette, NY and Minneapolis, MN were also lost in the shuffle.

“All original tickets will be honored,” writes the band. “For those not able to attend the newly rescheduled dates, a refund window is now available for the next 30 days from the original point of purchase.”
