Greek Theatre - U.C. Berkeley | Berkeley, California
In celebration of Maynard James Keenan's 60th birthday, Puscifer, Primus, and A Perfect Circle will band together at the Greek Theatre's stage this April 21st! The tour, dubbed "Sessanta," will stop by seven cities across the United States, with a one-night jaunt here at Berkeley, California. The amphitheater hosting the concert features first-class seats, sightlines, and acoustics, all backdropped by a scenic view of the San Francisco Bay. Puscifer and A Perfect Circle are both groundbreaking rock bands fronted by Keenan, the lead vocalist of the Grammy Award-winning band Tool. With Puscifer, the singer released smash hits like "Conditions Of My Parole," while his time with A Perfect Circle birthed Billboard-toppers such as "Judith" and "The Hollow." Completing our triple threat is the three-time Grammy-nominated Primus, fronted by bassist legend Les Claypool and whose tracks include "My Name Is Mud" and "American Life."

Maynard James Keenan, the four-time Grammy Award-winning frontman of Tool, is celebrating his 60th birthday with a triple dose of ROCK injected straight into your veins. Primus will join Keenan and his bandmates from A Perfect Circle and Puscifer for a seven-city spring tour, with its fourth show set on April 21 at the Greek Theatre. Based on an official press release, the show's format will simultaneously place the trio of bands on stage. Each group will have its own distinctive set, but as the night develops, "the players will continually transform" as they play off each other's performances.
"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 show, at The Greek Theatre in 2014. 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," Keenan said in an earlier statement.
A Perfect Circle is a supergroup born from the collaboration between our celebrant and musician Billy Howerdel in 1999. A year later, they released their debut album, Mer de Noms (Sea of Names), to resounding acclaim, led by Billboard-breaking singles, "Judith," "3 Libras", and "The Hollow." The group also dropped their latest album in 2018 after a fourteen-year drought, and in this upcoming tour, they're making their first concert comeback in six years!
Puscifer, meanwhile, was originally Keenan's solo project dedicated to his "creative subconscious." "The Humbling River," "Conditions Of My Parole," and "The Remedy" are some of Puscifer's most-played hits. Frequent collaborators Carina Round and Mat Mitchell joined the band permanently in 2020, credited in its fourth album, Existential Reckoning.
And finally, we have Primus, the three-time Grammy-nominated rock band fronted by legendary bassist-vocalist Les Claypool. Multiple platinum certifications mark its nearly thirty-year discography, which often employs vivid storytelling in the band's tracks: "Jerry Was a Race Car Driver," "My Name Is Mud," and "American Life," to name a few.
Sessanta: A 60th Birthday Celebration for Maynard James Keenan featuring Puscifer, Primus, and A Perfect Circle is coming to you LIVE on Sunday, April 21, at the Greek Theater in Berkeley, California!
