Buy Tickets PRIMUS - A Tribute to Kings

Due to Cumberland County having substantial community transmission of COVID-19, it is recommended that everyone wear masks when inside Cross Insurance Arena regardless of vaccination status.

The PRIMUS show originally scheduled at Maine Savings Pavilion at Rock Row, has been moved to Cross Insurance Arena in Portland. 

All tickets purchased for the event at Maine Savings Pavilion at Rock Row will be honored for GA FLOOR access at Cross Insurance Arena.  

Ticket purchasers that wish to request a refund have up to 30 days to do so. Refunds may be requested through Ticketmaster.

Waterfront Concerts is also pleased to announce, Primus will be joined by NEW SUPPORT from Black Mountain. 

Primus will pay homage to prog-rock legends Rush this summer with A Tribute to Kings, a cross-country tour that will feature the Bay Area trio playing Rush's classic 1977 album A Farewell to Kings in its entirety, in addition to their own music.

"A little over one year ago, Ler Lalonde and I started kicking the idea around of Primus performing a series of shows featuring an iconic Rush album from our youth," says bandleader Les Claypool. "Being that A Farewell to Kings was the first Rush record I ever heard, and that it contains my all-time favorite Rush tune, "Cygnus X1," the choice narrowed quickly. Years ago I had done something similar with Colonel Claypool's Fearless Flying Frog Brigade, when we covered Pink Floyd's Animals in its entirety. It was an insane amount of work, but ended up being one of the most enjoyable live endeavors I've ever done. Dubbing the tour 'Primus: A Tribute to Kings,' it was originally scheduled to be performed in the Fall of 2019 but, when we were asked to support Slayer on their Final Campaign, the 'Tribute to Kings' tour was postponed.

Geddy, Alex and Neil had been superheroes to Larry, Herb and I in our teens, so when we all became pals while touring together in the early '90s, we were pretty delighted; partially because of the musical geek-out factor but mostly because the three guys whom we had admired so much from afar, turned out to be truly great, down-to-earth humans, and like us, a tad eccentric.

The 'Tribute to Kings' tour will be just as it is implied, a respectful and loving tribute to three spectacular musicians, songwriters, legends and friends."

A Tribute to Kings kicks off in May and spans over 40 dates through August, including Bonnaroo Arts And Music Festival in Tennessee, New York City's Beacon Theatre, LA's Greek Theatre, and a Bay Area hometown show at Berkeley's Greek Theater. Wolfmother will open the entire tour with additional support from The Sword and Battles.

    • National Disc Golf Day blast from the past 🚀
.
.
Remember that time we turned the @cross_arena into an indoor disc golf course for a couple months? In a time of darkness, the Discin' Downtown and Prodigy Par 2 events this spring were everything our staff didn't know we needed. The groovy orange bubble-wrapped chandeliers set the 'stage' for us to host old friends and new from all over New England. We wouldn't have wanted to ride that rollercoaster with anyone else @hammondfarmdiscgolf @LonePineBrewing. For #NationalDiscGolfDay get outside, crush a Lone Pine, grab your discs and play 18 at Hammond Farm Disc Golf in North Berwick, ME (open dawn 'til dusk).
