Tim then welcomed his fans to the show and the fans cheered then he started singing to the crowd. “What the hell’s going on here, Sydney?” And everyone cheered and said in unison “Primus sucks, Primus sucks”.

Then Tim said “Ah, the call of the wild,” and Claypool said “I think we’ve actually changed it to ‘Ler Sucks’.” The crowd laughed and then Primus proceeded to play “Groundhog’s Day” , “American Life”, “Over the Falls” and “Lee Van Cleef”.

It was obvious that everyone knew the next song which was “Too Many Puppies” as the audience started swaying along and enjoying every moment and then continued playing “Sgt. Baker” followed by “The Storm”.

The lights were flashing along to every song and each song had a different videoclip in the background on three screens which gave the night a truly unique experience.

You could tell everyone was enjoying the show listening to songs they have listened to when they were kids to recently when as there was music played from almost every album.

Primus then played “Welcome to This World”, “Mrs. Blaileen” and “Jerry Was a Race Car Driver” and everyone sung and danced along. Primus then played “My Name Is Mud” and walked off stage as the lights dimmed.
