frontman Les Claypool was only 7 years old when David L. Wolper's Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory,
the fantastic film based on the Roald Dahl book by the same name, debuted in movie theaters. Yet, the film has stuck with him. Last year on New Year’s Eve, Claypool and co. paid homage to the movie with a Willy Wonka-themed Primus and the Chocolate Factory show; during the concert, the band performed the film's soundtrack in its entirety.
"Of the 23 or so New Years shows, I don't think we've ever had a better combination of elements," Claypool says in a press release announcing a Willy Wonka-themed tour. "It felt good. It felt like we needed to be doing this." As part of the tour, the band will play the Masonic Auditorium on April 27. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday through Ticketweb
