Back in February of 2020, Primus announced they will tour performing Rush’s classic 1977 album A Farewell to Kings in its entirety along with songs from their own catalog. Canceling the tour amid the pandemic, the band has announced 40 rescheduled dates starting on August 10 in Boise, Idaho with stops in North Carolina including Raleigh on September 4, 2021 (Red Hat Amphitheater) and Charlotte on September 5, 2021 (Charlotte Metro Credit Union Amphitheatre).

Australian rockers Wolfmother will open for Primus kicking off the tour and on the final leg while Austin, Texas metal band, The Sword will open up in Raleigh and Charlotte.

“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,” Les Claypool said in a statement announcing the rescheduled tour dates.

All original tickets will be honored, but 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.
