    Primus to honor their heroes: RUSH with tour dates and a tribute set.

    454

    In a post on their website, Primus announced:

    This summer, Primus will pay homage to prog-rock legends Rush with a “Tribute to Kings”, a cross-country tour that will feature the iconic ‘A Farewell to Kings’ in its entirety. Special guests Wolfmother will be joining the tour, with The Sword and Battles opening select dates.

    A special pre-sale, including VIP upgrade options, will go on sale, Wednesday, February 19 at 10am local time. General public on sale Friday, February 21 at 10am local time.

    As Rush fan site Danforth & Pape noted, For Claypool, this will be the latest in a long series of surreal Rush-related milestones. Primus opened for Rush on tour in 1992, and since then the bassist has crossed paths with the prog legends many times. In 2006, Claypool performed at Rush’s Canadian Songwriters Hall of Fame induction, and last year, Geddy Lee sat in with the Claypool Lennon Delirium in Toronto. Europe awaits!!! 😉
