Dec. 3, 2013, LOS ANGELES – Cinquanta, Maynard James Keenan’s 50th birthday celebration featuring performances from Puscifer, A Perfect Circle and Failure, has been confirmed for May 10 at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles (http://www.ticketmaster.com/event/09004B7ACBDF6603).
“Making it to the half century mark can be equal parts daunting and relieving,” explained Keenan. “I figured I would remove the sting of officially being referred to as ‘Gramps’ by throwing a party and outlasting all of my rude friends.”
The special evening includes sets by Keenan’s multimedia-meets-rock band Puscifer as well as the alt-rock super group A Perfect Circle. Along with a steadily growing list of surprise guest appearances, Failure, who Keenan has said he personally asked for a reunion show as a birthday gift, will perform. “This was the perfect opportunity to tick off one of my bucket list items in the form of a Failure reunion. What better birthday present could one ever hope for?”
Puscifer recently released What Is…, a full-length concert film-meets- mockumentary that showcases the collective’s unique live performances, which are known for their skillfully presented variety show atmosphere.
A Perfect Circle has also been busy, releasing a concert film titled Stone and Echo: Live From Red Rocks as well as a collection of live albums: Mer de Noms Live, Thirteenth Step Live and eMOTIVe Live. Three Sixty, a greatest hits collection, which includes the outfit’s first new studio recording in nearly a decade, “By and Down,” arrived in-stores on Nov. 19.
Tickets are on-sale this Friday, Dec. 6 at 10 a.m. pacific. A VIP package with preferred seating and commemorative items will be available on Dec. 5 at 10 am pacific via cinquanta.frontgatetickets.com.
