Primus Adds to Final 2018 Tour Dates

Les Claypool

After announcing the final batch of tour dates in support of their latest album, The Desaturating Seven, Primus has listened to the fans and added a handful more dates for the rest of the year. The band has been performing the album, which is based on a trippy goblin-themed children’s book, in full during their shows alongside classic tracks. Les Claypool made the announcement on the Primus Facebook page.

“Hey, all you Primates out there. So, due to popular demand and the fact that such a spectacular time on this latest summer tour was had, we’ve decided to extend our short fall run into three glorious Goblin filled weeks of Primus,” he wrote. “If you haven’t seen it yet or want to catch it one last time, now’s your chance to get your “gob on”. We might even slip a little Nutbutter onto your Glass Sandwich as we all ride the Hamburger Train to Kalamazoo…well maybe. And, don’t forget, dress like your favorite Goblin or Primus character and win a prize. (We are thinking jars of Pickled Ler Underpants but we’ve yet to work that out).”

The final run will kick off in California and work its way across the South to North Carolina before doubling back through the Midwest. The final dates on the books are a pair of dates in Denver, Colorado.
