Les Claypool has joined up with Sean Lennon, son of John Lennon and Yoko Ono, to form the Claypool Lennon Delirium. The new band will head out on a full tour with stops in Port Chester and New York City.
The Claypool Lennon Delirium will embark on a two-leg tour starting in early June. The first leg, only lasting a couple weeks, kicks off in Florida and includes a stop at Bonnaroo before closing out on June 18 at the Capitol Theatre in Port Chester. The tour picks back up about a month later in Seattle and ends Sept. 1 in Washington, D.C. They play the new Vertex Festival in Buena Vista, Colorado Aug. 5 to 7. Their last stop in New York is at Irving Plaza in New York City on Aug. 30.
The tour includes several other stops nearby in the Northeast. They make a stop at Peach Fest in Scranton, Pennsylvania on Aug. 13. They head up to Boston’s House of Blues on Aug. 26, followed by the College Street Music Hall in New Haven, Connecticut on Aug. 27 and the State Theater in Portland, Maine on Aug. 28. Following their Irving Plaza stop, they head to Philadelphia to play the Fillmore on Aug. 31.
In addition to Claypool and Lennon, the band is made up of Money Mark on keyboards and Paulo Baldi on drums. Claypool has been busy this year, touring with Primus as they opened for Tool in January.
Tickets for the tour are currently on sale.
