, Staff

Primus have announced plans to return to the road this fall for a unique 3D tour. The band will bring the tour to Boston’s Orpheum Theatre on Saturday, October 20. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $35 to $47.50, will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation.

The upcoming tour will mark the first-ever traveling 3D-enhanced live musical performance. Primus teamed with 3D Live from Burbank, California to create original 3D content for the tour, which will also feature Quad Surround Sound. Audience members will be given 3D glasses in order to fully experience the groundbreaking visual and audio performance. Primus, who first used the 3D system for a 2008 New Year’s Eve show in San Francisco, will deliver two full sets at each performance.

“It’s a pretty adventurous undertaking,” said Primus mastermind Les Claypool in a recent interview with Billboard. “Had we not done it once before, I’d be a little skeptical. But the show we did at the San Francisco Opera House was pretty amazing, and the notion of touring it seems to be an even more amazing concept, so we’re doing it.”

Following the show in Boston, Priums will travel to Rhode Island for a performance at the Veterans Memorial Auditorium in Providence on Sunday, October 21. Tickets for the show will are now on sale through the venue’s box office and website for $35.50 and $45.50. The tour will also stop at the Memorial Auditorium in Burlington, Vermont on October 13.

Primus’ latest album, Green Naugahyde, was produced and engineered by Claypool in his personal studio, Rancho Relaxo, in Northern California. It features Claypool alongside long-time guitarist Larry LaLonde and drummer Jay Lane. Green Naugahyde marks the band’s first album since 1999’s Antipop and features their first new material since 2003’s Animals Should Not Try to Act Like People EP.
