Primus Plans 3D Tour for the Fall
Primus just finished up its last scheduled date so far this year with an appearance at the Gathering of the Vibes festival over the weekend in Bridgeport, Conn., but the band won’t stay off the road for long.
The group has announced that this fall they will undertake a 3D tour. We’re not sure if we’ll be seeing Tupac-esque holograms or something similar on the tour, but the band does promise that the trek will be the first of its kind. The details are scarce at this point, but here’s how the group’s official website announced the new tour:
First-ever traveling 3D-enhanced live musical performance.
Primus is excited to announce a unique 3D tour this fall, featuring two sets per evening. Being that this is the first-ever traveling 3D enhanced live musical performance, this groundbreaking tour is sure to provide a one-of-a-kind psychedelic experience, further enhanced by the fact that every show will also feature Quad Surround Sound.
The website also points out that further details and full tour dates will be released next Monday.
On the tour, the band will be supporting their most recent record, Green Naugahyde, which was released in September of last year. The album is the group’s first release consisting of original music in 12 years, with the last being 1999’s Antipop.
The group already performed nearly 30 concerts this year, with a combination of headlining shows and festival appearance taking place throughout May and June. The earlier tour saw the return of drummer Jay Lane, who had not performed with the long-running band since the late 1980s. No word yet whether Lane will be back for the 3D tour.
Lane appeared alongside guitarist Larry LaLonde and bassist Les Claypool, with the latter being the sole constant member of the band since it was founded in the mid-1980s.
