PrimusRush tribute tour got a rave review from Geddy Lee himself.

The tour — during which Primus is playing Rush’s 1977 album A Farewell to Kings in full, as well as a set of their own songs — made a stop in the “Tom Sawyer” outfit’s hometown of Toronto Friday. Lee attended the show alongside Rush band mate Alex Lifeson and later reflected on the experience in an Instagram post.

“On Friday night we had the joyful experience of reuniting with our grand pals from Primus,” Lee wrote. “We sat side stage as they immaculately worked through a cool selection of classic Primus tunes which brought back fond memories of our touring together back in the early ’90s.”

Lee continued, “Then we were treated to the weird and wonderful experience of watching them perform our music: A Farewell to Kings in its entirety. Totally nailed it! They did us proud and we thank them deeply for the tribute and the lasting friendship.”

The post is accompanied by a photo of Lee and Lifeson alongside the Primus members.

Lifeson also shared his own post, reading, “It was 30 years ago we toured together and made so many great memories. From the moment we saw each other it was like those years were measured as minutes. That’s friendship.”

Primus’ Rush tribute tour continues Monday in Montreal.
