    It hasn’t been an easy road for PrimusRush tribute tour, “A Tribute to Kings.” After all, no matter how prepared your are for the shows (say, by practicing with Geddy Lee himself), there’s nothing much you can do about pandemic and COVID-outbreak postponements. But Primus have been undeterred, and not only have they now rescheduled previously delayed dates, they’ve expanded the itinerary well into the summer of 2022.

    Gigs in Kansas City, Cedar Rapids, and Milwaukee that were put on hold following COVID-19 cases amongst the Primus crew have now been set for late April. That puts them in the early portion of the newly announced 46-date North American leg that runs through the end of June. Going coast-to-coast and well into Canada, the new schedule includes stops in San Antonio, New Orleans, Miami Beach, Nashville, Toronto, Montreal, Albany, Atlantic City, Louisville, Sacramento, Santa Barbara, and Las Vegas.

    As it has since it officially launched back in August, the “A Tribute to Kings Tour” finds Primus covering Rush’s 1977 album A Farewell to Kings in its entirety. “We settled on Kings, because A) it was the first Rush record I ever heard and B) it contains ‘Cygnus X-1,’ which has always been my favorite Rush tune,” Les Claypool said in a press statement. “It seems to be a good one for us to tackle; 2112 seemed a little obvious.”
