Rush Tour 2021

Rush Tour 2021: Primus will mount their long-delayed tour in homage to Rush, A Tribute to Kings, this summer. The band postponed the dates last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The trek, which will see Primus performing Rush’s 1977 album A Farewell to Kings in its entirety as well as some of their own music, will now kick-off August 10th in Boise, Idaho, before wrapping in Phoenix, Arizona, in October. Wolfmother will open all of the dates, and the Sword will join in on the festivities at some of them. Tickets are available now at

    “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,” frontman Les Claypool said in a statement. “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.”

    A statement from the band reinforced that it would follow local guidelines, regarding pandemic precautions. All original tickets will be honored, although anyone looking for a refund can seek one at their point of purchase over the next 30 days. Refunds to the band’s previously scheduled Toronto, Lafayette, and Minneapolis dates — which the band was not able to rebook — are also available at point of purchase.

    Last year, before lockdown, Claypool told Rolling Stone how important it was for him to pay tribute to a band that gave him so much inspiration over the years. He sought Geddy Lee’s blessing before mounting the tour. “I texted with him — I keep in touch with Geddy — just to make sure we weren’t trodding on something weird,” he said. “So I checked in with him to see what he thought of it, and he was excited about the notion.”
