Primus have revealed that they’ll head out on tour across North America this summer on a Rush tribute tour. Primus’ Les Claypool, Larry LaLonde and Tim Alexander will play a total of 46 dates, with Wolfmother, The Sword and Battles joining them on the run.

Primus will perform Rush’s 1977 album A Farewell To Kings in full on the tour branded A Tribute To Kings; the shows were announced after the death of Rush drummer Neil Peart last month.

Primus will open with A Farewell To Kings set before taking a break and returning to the stage for a set of Primus tracks.  Tickets will be available at the band’s purchase portal.
