Watch Primus Cover Rush’s “A Farewell To Kings” Album In Nampa, ID


Last night (August 10th) saw Primus kickoff their ‘A Tribute To Kings Tour‘ at the Ford Idaho Center in Nampa, ID. That run finds Primus paying tribute to Rush‘s 1977 album “A Farewell To Kings” each night. Primus vocalist/bassist Les Claypool even got personal lessons from Rush vocalist/bassist, etc. Geddy Lee ahead of the trek to ensure his playing was up to snuff.

Fan-filmed footage of the “A Farewell To Kings” portion of the set can be found below. The setlist for the show of that tour ran as follows:
