Primus Reschedules Rush Tribute Tour

Les Claypool

It’s been a roller coaster of emotions for Primus fans this year. The band’s highly anticipated “A Tribute to Kings” tour, which will feature Les Claypool and the gang performing Rush’s A Farewell to Kings in full, has been on and off for various reasons. Now it’s back on for 2021.

“Third time is the charm…we’ve postponed this Tribute to King’s tour twice now. Once because we opted to help send Slayer on their way into retirement and once because mother nature decided to slap us all into isolation with a nasty virus,” Claypool explains. “This time I will get to go out there and get my ‘Geddy on’. I’ve got my Ricky shined up and have been practicing my Moog licks. 2020 has proven to be one nasty kick to the crotch on many levels. This nation is divided beyond anything I’ve ever seen; from who’s wearing masks or not to who’s treating folks with common dignity…or not. Let’s hope 2021 will resolve us all into some form of unity. As far as touring, it will be nice to be back in the saddle again, see y’all next summer…’Geddy up!'”

The new dates will kick off in June at the Revenation Music Center in Houston, Texas before snaking its way across the South, Midwest, and Northeast. It’s slated to end on July 23rd at The Armory in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Primus says all 2020 tickets will be honored for the new dates, and ticket holders who can’t make the new date can request a refund.
