Primus was a wild-card for 2010 with their previously scheduled appearance at Gathering of the Vibes but with no other dates on the horizon. Then news came from the Furthur camp that Jay Lane was actually going to be leaving the band to re-join with Primus, and then news drops today that the band has lined up a slew of dates with Gogol Bordello. I’m eager to see what the band will bring to the road this year.

Influential alternative rock icons Primus are back and have confirmed their first headlining tour in four years. Old friends Gogol Bordello will be joining them on the road playing such venues as the Willamsburg Waterfront in Brooklyn, NY, and the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Aug 12th. More dates to come as the band refines their chops before heading into the studio to record their first album of brand new music since 1999’s Antipop. The new album will be released in 2011.

Fall tour dates will be coming soon. Go here to get tickets for the tour through The presale for the show in Brooklyn starts on Thursday and everything else starts going on sale this Saturday…
