Primus and Mastodon announce North American summer tour dates

Veteran rock powerhouses Primus and Mastodon will hit the road together this spring and summer, with 43 shows scheduled to start with a concert at Red Rocks Amphitheatre on May 6. The tour will continue throughout May and into early July before coming to a close on July 7 in Phoenix.

Primus spent nearly all of last year on the road in support of their ninth studio release, The Desaturating Seven. Their busy 2017 schedule saw them touring across North America starting in the spring and ending with a New Year’s Eve show at Oakland’s Fox Theater. The band’s upcoming show at Red Rocks will look to repeat their thrilling double bill at the famous outdoor venue in May of last year, where they shared the stage with bassist Les Claypool’s other psych-rock project, The Claypool Lennon Delirium.

Mastodon will also look to continue promoting their own 2017 album release of Emperor of Sand. For their seventh studio LP, the metal band recruited veteran rock producer Brendan O'Brien (Pearl Jam, Bruce Springsteen) to held guide the project. Non-music fans may also recognize the band from television, as the band also made a chilling cameo on the season finale of HBO’s hit series, “Game of Thrones.”

Notable stops for the two rock bands on their upcoming tour include scheduled performances at Seattle’s Marymoor Park on June 22, and Los Angeles’ Greek Theatre on July 5, just to name a few. Tickets for select shows on their upcoming summer tour will be going on sale to public starting this Friday, Feb 2, and can be purchased by clicking here.
