Following previously announced festival appearances from Les Claypool's Fearless Flying Frog Brigade, the Primus mastermind has announced the shape-shifting collective's 41-date Summer of Green Tour 2023, which marks the band's first trek since summer 2003. Joining Claypool this time out will be his Claypool Lennon Delirium bandmate Sean Ono Lennon on guitar, that group's Paulo Baldi on drums, original Frog Brigade member Skerik on horns, Mike Dillon (who enlisted in the Brigade in 2002) on percussion and Harry Waters on keyboards. Performances will feature a full performance of the classic Pink Floyd album Animals.
