A Primus Summer

Primus’ July-August trek begins with West Virginia’s All Good Festival and concludes (so far) with a gig in Papilion, Neb.  Touring with special guest Dinosaur Jr., the summer outing follows the band’s swing through Europe.

You will find a variety of venues on the routing with Primus playing clubs such as the legendary Stone Pony in Asbury Park, N.J., as well as outdoor locations like New York’s JBL Live at Pier 97 and the Freedom Hill Amphitheatre in Sterling Heights, Mich.  The band’s latest album – Primus & The Chocolate Factory With The Fungi Ensemble – arrived in October. Les Claypool & Co. are referring to the previously announced April-May shows in the U.S. as well as the band’s June Euro trip as “Primus and the Chocolate Factory.”
