Primus has announced rescheduled dates for their highly anticipated A Tribute To Kings tour, at which the Bay Area trio will play Rush’s classic 1977 album A Farewell to Kings in its entirety, in addition to their own music.

The tour, originally scheduled for 2020, will take Primus to over 40 venues across the U.S. from August through October this fall. All dates will be opened by Wolfmother, with The Sword joining for select dates. In a statement, the band says:

“It’s been too long and Primus is excited to get back out on the road. We continue to monitor government restrictions and current health & safety protocols to bring ‘A Tribute To Kings’ out on the road in 2021. With that said, we have slightly shifted the tour to begin in August and run through October. Check out the list of newly rescheduled dates. All original tickets will be honored. For those not able to attend newly rescheduled dates, a refund window is now available for the next 30 days from the original point of purchase.”

In a note to fans, the band’s frontman Les Claypool says:

“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.”
