Primus Opens a Chocolate Factory in Peabody Opera House

Funk fans entered a world of pure imagination on November 5, 2014, when Primus brought its Willy Wonka-themed tour to Peabody Opera House. Supporting the new album Primus & the Chocolate Factory with the Fungi Ensemble, Les Claypool and friends performed their trademark funk-metal amid Oompa-Loompas, snozzberries and lollipops.
