Primus will head out on an extensive, 46-date, coast-to-coast extension of its wildly popular ‘A Tribute To Kings’ Tour, paying homage to prog-rock legends, Rush. ‘A Tribute To Kings’ will find Primus performing Rush’s 1977 album ‘A Farewell To Kings’ in its entirety, following a set of their own music. As bassist Les Claypool told Rolling Stone, the tour is about paying tribute to a band that has given him so much inspiration over the years.
Kicking off in Oklahoma City before winding its way throughout the US, the second leg of ‘A Tribute To Kings’ will also include the tour’s first stops in Canada, beginning with two dates in Rush’s hometown, Toronto on May 13-14 at Massey Hall. The second leg will also feature stops in many Canadian cities including Montreal, Quebec City and Vancouver and Primus will be joined by special guests Battles, Black Mountain, and Black Angels throughout the tour.
