Primus postponed this weekend’s A Tribute To Kings tour stops after a member of the band’s touring party tested positive for COVID-19. Rescheduled dates for shows in Milwaukee, Kansas City and Cedar Rapids will be announced soon.

The trio featuring bassist Les Claypool, guitarist Larry LaLonde and drummer Tim “Herb” Alexander has been performing all of Rush’s legendary 1977 studio album A Farewell To Kings at each show on their current tour. Primus was slated to play Milwaukee’s BMO Harris Pavilion tonight, Kansas City’s GrindersKC on Saturday and Cedar Rapids’ McGrath Amphitheatre on Sunday.
