A show SIMGE always hoped would happen (and one we attempted to put together last year) is finally coming to fruition as the Les Claypool-led Primus unveiled a series of summer tour dates this morning, including a June 28th stop at The Stone Pony to perform upon its Summer Stage…and joining the band will be the Dean Ween Group.
(Check the recap of Dean Ween & Friends rocking The Saint for a Sandy Benefit back in 2012 here)
Claypool and Ween recently connected on a series of fishing trips for a potential reality television show produced by Matt Stone and Trey Parker (South Park, The Book Of Mormon) that would combine the duo’s love of fishing with their comedic prowess and include special guests at locations around the country, including the Jersey Shore, where Ween owns and operates a fishing charter…check out the pilot of sorts, as well as the full slate of dates, below.
Tickets for the event will be available via Ticketmaster and The Stone Pony box office at an unspecified date…however, you can check Ticketmaster for updates here.
