Primus Announce Newly Rescheduled Dates For Rush Tribute Tour With Wolfmother & The Sword


Primus have announced the rescheduled dates for their upcoming tribute tour to Rush‘s 1977 album “A Farewell To Kings“. That trek had originally been booked for 2020 and then rescheduled to commence this June. It will now take place this August through to October with the new dates available below. Wolfmother will appear as support on all dates, while The Sword will also be opening select stops.

Primus vocalist/bassist Les Claypool commented:

“Finally, the clouds are parting, the planets are aligning, the dough is rising…whatever metaphor floats your preverbal boat, PRIMUS is going on tour again. We were poised and ready for a massive, bent-rock extravaganza when the gremlins of covid came and yanked the rug out from under us all.

I personally have been climbing the walls like a shit-house rat and, after my first season off in 30 some odd years, I’m very anxious and excited to stand in front of the microphone with my four string piece of furniture and belt out some girthy ditties to sweaty throngs of punters.

C’mon Down,
Les Claypool

The band’s camp further stated:

‘As government restrictions and current health & safety protocols continue to be monitored, we have slightly shifted the “A Tribute To Kings” tour to begin this August and run through October. Check out the list of newly rescheduled dates.

Special guests Wolfmother will be still be joining for the entire tour and The Sword will open select dates. All original tickets will be honored. For those not able to attend the newly rescheduled dates, a refund window is now available for the next 30 days from the original point of purchase.

Due to international travel advisories, Toronto, ON is cancelled as we work to make new plans across multiple Canadian cities in 2022.

Lafayette, NY and Minneapolis, MN were also unfortunately not able to fit into our immediate plans and have been cancelled. Refunds will be issued from point of purchase. Tickets, including VIP upgrades, are available at’

No mention has been made of Battles, who were originally scheduled to open a leg of the trek. However they no longer appear on the admat for these new dates, so it seems safe to say that they will no longer be involved in the trek.
