Primus bringing full-immersion spectacle to City Auditorium

Posted By on Tue, Feb 26, 2013 at 5:35 PM

So what are you doing this Friday morning? If you’re a Primus fan, you’ll be lined up outside a Ticketmaster outlet or feverishly clicking on its website when tickets for the band’s May 16 concert at Colorado Springs' City Auditorium go on sale at 10 a.m. (Actually, if you’re a Ticketmaster member, you can get presale tickets on Thursday.)

Mind you, this is not just any Primus tour — it’s a “3D-enhanced live musical performance,” which means you’ll get to stare at the band through paper glasses for two full sets of what critic Joe Gore once dubbed “thrash-funk meets Don Knotts, Jr.”

If all that’s not enough, the show will be presented in Quad Surround Sound, a technology that's come a long way since the Flaming Lips’ late-90s “parking lot experiments” (see second video below), where audiences were surrounded by cars all blasting variations on the same album from their dashboard cassette players.
