Due to overwhelming demand, a second Cinquanta show has been added: May 11 at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. Cinquanta is Maynard James Keenan’s 50th birthday celebration featuring performances from Puscifer, A Perfect Circle and Failure.
“On the off chance I don’t make it to 100,” said Keenan, “let’s just do both now.”
Tickets for both dates, May 10 and 11, are on-sale now (Dec. 6 at 10:00 am pacific). A VIP package with preferred seating and commemorative items is available simultaneously via cinquanta.frontgatetickets.com.
“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 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… (https://itunes.apple.com/us/movie/what-is…/id766924005), 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.
