Maynard James Keenan is turning 60 next spring, and the TOOL frontman is celebrating in a big way. Keenan‘s two other bands, A Perfect Circle and Puscifer, will be joining forces with Funk-Metal greats Primus for a spectacular collaborative tour that will feature all three bands sharing the stage at the same time.
Dubbed Sessanta, the 2024 trek is a callback to Keenan‘s 50th birthday celebration, Cinquanta, which was supposed to be a one-off collaboration between APC, Puscifer and Primus in Los Angeles.
Now, that star-studded lineup of musicians will be reuniting for seven West Coast tour dates in the spring of next year, kicking off April 17th (Keenan‘s actual birthday) in Phoenix and wrapping up the next week with a two-night stint at Colorado’s iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater.
The untraditional tour setup is unique in and of itself, but the gigs will also mark A Perfect Circle‘s first shows since 2018, adding another layer of specialness to the whole excurision.
“It took some massaging, and some long days in rehearsal, but we managed to seamlessly pull off this three-song rotation at Cinquanta, my 50th birthday shows, at The Greek Theatre in 2014,” Keenan said in a press release.
“Bands aren’t used to simultaneously sharing the stage with other bands, but if anyone can do it, it’s Primus, A Perfect Circle, and Puscifer.“
