Primus Offering 3-D Experience on Spring North American Tour

Primus have mapped out a spring North American tour that will find the veteran rockers performing two sets per night accompanied by 3-D visuals and a quadraphonic sound system — elements that will combine to create what frontman Les Claypool has called “a really trippy” experience for fans. The trek kicks off March 8 in New Orleans and runs through a June 9 gig in North Tonawanda, N.Y. Along the way, they’ll stop at the Bottle Rock, Mountain Jam and Niagara River Rocks festivals.

“This groundbreaking tour will provide a one-of-a-kind psychedelic experience, further enhanced by the fact that every show will also feature Quad Surround Sound,” promises a press release from the band. “Primus teamed with 3D Live from Burbank, CA to create original 3-D content for the tour. Audience members will be given 3-D glasses in order to fully experience a visual and audio performance like no other.”

Not all dates will include the 3-D visuals (check details below), but all stops will certainly showcase Primus’ excellently eclectic brand of tripped-out funk-metal jams. If you can name a group embraced by the jam band circuit that rocks harder than Primus, your next bong hit is on us.
