Primus Announces 2022 Rush Tribute Tour Dates


Primus may have had to reschedule their Rush Tribute tour three times, but now they’re making up for it. After wrapping up the first leg in October, the band has unveiled a second leg of their “A Tribute to Kings” tour for 2022 that will have 46 stops across the U.S. and Canada.

They will once again perform Rush’s A Farewell To Kings in its entirety before playing a set of Primus originals.

“‘Hemispheres’was my first concert,” Les Claypool told Rolling Stone. “Originally we’d always kind of joked around about doing ‘Hemispheres’… but we settled on “Kings” because A) it was the first Rush record I ever heard and B) it contains ‘Cygnus X-1,’ which has always been my favorite Rush tune. It seems to be a good one for us to tackle; 2112 seemed a little obvious.”

The outing will begin in Oklahoma on April 15th before snaking through the States and into Canada. They’ll pay tribute to the Canadian prog power trio with ten dates in the Great White North. A final date is set for June 25th in Las Vegas, Nevada.
