Primus Add New Leg To Rush Tribute Tour

Primus have announced a brand new leg of their 'A Tribute To Kings' Tour, where they tribute prog legends Rush by performing the band's iconic 1977 album "A Farewell To Kings" in full, and a set of their own songs.

The 46-date tour is set to launch on April 15th in Oklahoma City, OK at The Criterion and will be wrapping up on June 25th in Las Vegas, NV at The Theater at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas.

Les Claypool had this to say, "Hemispheres was my first concert. 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."

"Geddy, Alex and Neil had been superheroes to Larry, Herb and I in our teens," Claypool added, "so when we all became pals while touring together in the early '90s, we were pretty delighted; partially because of the musical geek-out factor but mostly because the three guys whom we had admired so much from afar, turned out to be truly great, down-to-earth humans, and like us, a tad eccentric."
