Primus With Rush

Watch Primus Share The Stage With Rush, Ween & More At ‘South Park’ 25th Anniversary Shows


Given their long-standing ties to the animated TV series ‘South Park‘, Primus were a prominent guest onstage this week at a pair of shows (August 09th & 10th) to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the series. Expectedly, a diverse setlist was performed at that show, which took place at the Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO.

In addition to seeing Primus and Ween combine for performances of Ween‘s “It’s Gonna Be A Long Night” and Primus‘ “Here Come The Bastards“, members of all bands involved took part in live renditions of various musical numbers from throughout the history of ‘South Park“.

As an added bonus, Primus also performed a cover of Rush‘s “Closer To The Heart” with the latter’s bassist/vocalist Geddy Lee and guitarist Alex Lifeson sitting in. ‘South Park‘ co-creator Matt Stone sat in on drums for that performance,

Primus of course are no strangers to the music of Rush, having covered them early on in their career and in recent years, covering the Canadian prog rock band’s 1977 album “A Farewell To Kings” live.

Other highlights included Matt Stone assisting on vocals as the ‘South Park‘ character ‘Butters‘ for a rendition of ‘Butters The Cat‘ (aka “Tommy The Cat“), Primus ripping through all three renditions of their ‘South Park‘ theme songs with Stone and ‘South Park‘ co-creator Trey Parker and more.
