The stretch of dates revives the 2014 extravaganza, Cinquanta, which saw all three bands share the same stage to commemorate Maynard James Keenan’s 50th birthday.

Just about a decade ago, revered frontman Maynard James Keenan marked his 50th birthday with a special one night only engagement at Los Angeles’ famed Greek Theatre dubbed, Cinquanta. The event featured a trio of performances from two of his musical endeavors in Puscifer and A Perfect Circle with raucous prog rock renegades Primus also joining the festivities.

With ten years having gone by since the outing, Keenan along with his crew of co-conspirators have announced plans to revive and expand the initial inception of Cinquanta to mark Maynard’s 60th birthday. Stretching the celebration to a seven-day jaunt, the new edition title Sessanta, again sees the union of Primus, Puscifer and the first live performance from A Perfect Circle in five years.

Sessanta’s unconventional format features the trio of bands performing with one another throughout the concert. Each band will have their own distinct set, however, the individual players will continually rotate and transform as the night transpires.

“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 shows, at The Greek Theatre in 2014,” shared Keenan. “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.”
