In addition to the New Year’s Eve show, Primus will put on its first New Year’s Day show, which the band promises will “be just the cure for your hangover from the night before.” Both performances take place in San Francisco at the Great American Music Hall.
Last year Primus performed Dec. 30-31 in Oakland, Calif., at the Fox Theater.
The 2012 European tour begins March 23 in Pordenone, Italy, at Palasport. Dates are booked through a two-night stand at London’s Royal Albert Hall April 4-5.
Additional stops include Brescia, Italy (March 24); Fribourg, Switzerland (March 26); Cologne, Germany (March 29); Eindhoven, Netherlands (April 1); and Brussels, Belgium (April 2).
Primus is touring in support of the band’s first studio album in nearly 12 years. Green Naugahyde was released in September on ATO Records / Prawn Songs.
Tickets for the Dec. 31 and Jan. 1 gigs go on sale Tuesday at 10 a.m. Pacific Standard Time. The European dates are on sale now.
