Primus have announced their very first live show of the year, titled Alive At Pachyderm Station. The virtual gig is set to air Friday, 11 December at 9pm ET.

Tickets to the event are now available for purchase and will allow ticket purchasers to rewatch the event 72 hours after its start.

Alive At Pachyderm Station will take place at bassist and singer Les Claypool’s winery in California. In a statement announcing the event, Claypool told fans of the experimental funk metal trio to look forward to an “intimate” and “casual” set, calling it “Primus in the raw”.

“Strange, eclectically wonderful things tend to happen when the three of us get in a room together with our instruments,” Claypool said. “This will be an intimate and casual performance between three longtime friends as opposed to an elaborate ‘show.’”

This year, Primus were set to embark on a special tour paying tribute to Canadian rock legends Rush. The tour – in which Primus planned to perform Rush’s 1977 album A Farewell To Kings in its entirety – has since been rescheduled to 2021 due to COVID-19.

In a statement on the postponement of the tour, Claypool called 2020 “one nasty kick to the crotch on many levels”.

“Let’s hope 2021 will resolve us all into some form of unity,” he said. “As far as touring, it will be nice to be back in the saddle again, see y’all next summer…‘Geddy up!’”
