SESSANTA

FEATURING PUSCIFER, A PERFECT CIRCLE AND PRIMUS,
MAY 1 AT WINTRUST ARENA IN CHICAGO

TICKETS FOR THE LIMITED ENGAGEMENT TOUR CELEBRATING MAYNARD JAMES

KEENAN’S 60 th BIRTHDAY ARE ON-SALE THIS FRIDAY AT 10 AM

Sessanta, the tour featuring Puscifer, A Perfect Circle, and Primus joining forces, and sharing
band members for a wholly unique concert experience, have extended their tour, adding a May
1 performance at Wintrust Arena, located at 200 East Cermak Road in Chicago.
Tickets are on sale this Friday, November 3 at 10:00 am through Ticketmaster.com.
“What a glorious notion of combining three bands that all start with the letter ‘P’ for a tribute to
Maynard Keenan&#39;s 60th trip around the sun,” shared Primus’ Les Claypool. “I&#39;ve known Maynard
for more than three decades and I have to say, I&#39;ve yet to meet a more creative, ambitious and
industrious human being; that is assuming he is actually human. Often his perspective and
output are more ‘extraterrestrial’ than that of this planet so, It wouldn&#39;t surprise me if he has
some sort ‘Prometheus’ type DNA deep in his marrow.”
Sessanta is a resurrection, and expansion, of the 2014 Los Angeles event, Cinquanta, which
was originally a one-time only celebration. Much like that fabled evening, which commemorated
Maynard James Keenan’s landmark 50 th birthday, Sessanta celebrates the Puscifer and A
Perfect Circle frontman as he turns 60.
The tour’s unique format sees the musicians from the trio of bands joining each other’s
performances throughout the concert. While each group will have their own distinctive set, the
players will continually transform as the night unfolds.
“It took some massaging, and some long days in rehearsal, but we managed to seamlessly pull
off this three-song rotation at Cinquanta, my 50 th birthday shows, at The Greek Theatre in 2014,”
says Keenan of the dates that also sees A Perfect Circle’s first live performances since 2018.
“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.”
