Primus Announce Rescheduled Rush Tribute Tour For Summer 2021
Primus have rescheduled their "A Tribute to Kings" tour, in which they will be performing Rush's A Farewell to Kings album in its entirety. Joining them in the summer of 2021 will be Wolfmother, The Sword and Battles, all appearing at select stops.
"Third time is the charm…we’ve postponed this 'A Tribute to Kings' 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. 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," said Primus singer and bassist Les Claypool.
The visionary continued, "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!"
More information and tickets can be found at the Primus website. All tickets originally purchased for the corresponding 2020 dates will be honored for the shows taking place next summer. Refunds are also available with further information available here.
