Primus recently wrapped up the first leg of their psychedelic 3D show. The band extended the tour to include the state of California for a holiday tour that begins in San Diego, CA at the Balboa Theater on December 27th, heading to the Wiltern in Los Angeles, CA on December 29th, followed by two nights at San Francisco’s Warfield Theater on December 30th and 31st.  This tour, which includes two sets per evening, is the first-ever traveling 3D-enhanced live musical performance, sure to provide a one-of-a-kind psychedelic experience, further enhanced by the fact that every show will also feature Quad Surround Sound. Primus teamed with 3D Live from Burbank, CA to create original 3D content for this tour. Audience members will be given 3D glasses in order to fully experience a visual and audio performance like no other.

In conjunction with the tour, ATO Records will release a 10″ single, with live versions of “Jilly’s On Smack” and “Eyes of the Squirrel.” The vinyl, which will be wrapped in a green naugahyde sleeve, will be available at independent record stores for Black Friday – November 23rd.
