The rock band Primus is paying tribute to one of the biggest bands to ever come out of Canada – Rush – when they play “A Tribute to Kings” in its entirety on their upcoming tour.

The North American tour will feature Battles, Black Mountain, or The Black Angels at various stops along the tour.

Primus’ Les Claypool notes that Rush has been a major influence on the band; adding to them the trio – Geddy, Alex, and Neil – are superheroes.

Tickets for the tour go on sale to the general public beginning at 10am local time on December 17.  VIP packages are also available.
