Primus brings their “A Tribute to Kings” Tour to The Amp on Saturday, May 7, 2022 with special guest Battles. They’ll perform Rush’s classic 1977 album, “A Farewell to Kings”, in its entirety, paying homage to the prog-rock legends.
As bassist Les Claypool told Rolling Stone, the tour is about paying tribute to a band that has given him so much inspiration over the years.
“Hemispheres was my first concert”, Claypool said, referring to Rush’s 1978 album and tour. “Originally, we’d always kind of joked around about doing Hemispheres, but 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. It seems to be a good one for us to tackle; 2112 seemed a little obvious.”
