Primus Postpones Rush Tribute Tour To 2021
Primus rescheduled their A Tribute To Kings tour to 2021 due to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic. The trio will perform Rush‘s A Farewell To Kings album in its entirety at each stop of the run, which features support from Wolfmother, Battles and The Sword on select dates.
The A Farewell To Kings set will come before Primus delivers a set of originals. Primus originally intended to take A Tribute To Kings on the road last fall, but put the idea on ice after Slayer asked the band to serve as support on their final tour. The trio originally announced A Tribute To Kings dates in February and intended to start the excursion on May 26. Primus confirmed the tour would be postponed on May 3 and have now detailed the new dates.
Read a note from Primus frontman Les Claypool about the decision below:
Third time is the charm…we’ve postponed this “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. 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!”
Tickets for the 2020 shows will be honored on the new dates in 2021. Refunds are available for ticketholders who cannot attend the new dates. Ticketholders will receive an email allowing them to request a refund.
