The 2021 leg of Primus' A Tribute to Kings Rush tribute tour finished off in Phoenix back in October, and - despite a few cancellations along the way due to COVID-19 - the tour was a huge success. The tour saw the band paying tribute to their musical heroes Rush by covering the A Farewell to Kings album in full as seen in these fan-shot videos (part 1, part 2), mixed in with a couple sets of Primus classics. Last month, the band announced rescheduled 2022 dates for the 5 cancelled shows, and also promised that more dates (including several Canadian cities) would be announced soon. Earlier today they made good on that promise, announcing an extensive, 46-date, coast-to-coast 2022 extension of the tour, including several Canadian dates, which will kick off in Oklahoma City on April 15th, and conclude in Las Vegas on June 25th. From the official Primus Facebook page:

Primus will hit the road again in 2022, continuing to pay homage to prog-rock legends RUSH iconic album "A Farewell To Kings". This newly announced leg of 'A Tribute To Kings' will include its first stops in Canada and feature special guests Battles, Black Mountain, & The Black Angels on select dates.
