Primus has postponed a trio of dates on the band’s ongoing A Tribute to Kings Rush tribute tour due to a “confirmed COVID-19 case within the Primus touring party.”

Affected dates include tonight, October 8, in Milwaukee, October 9 in Kansas City, Missouri, and October 10 in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

“The safety of our fans, crew, venue staff and band are our top priority so out of an abundance of caution, we are postponing our shows in Milwaukee, Kansas City, and Cedar Rapids this weekend,” Primus says. “We are working to reschedule the dates and your tickets will be valid at the new dates.”

The tour is expected to pick back up October 13 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Primus first scheduled the A Tribute to Kings tour for 2020 before it was postponed due to the pandemic. The outing features the “My Name Is Mud” rockers performing Rush’s 1977 album A Farewell to Kings in full.
