Maynard James Keenan is turning 50 this spring, and he’s putting on a special concert to celebrate the milestone. The singer has announced he’ll be performing with two of his bands, Puscifer and A Perfect Circle, at The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, CA, on May 10.
“Making it to the half century mark can be equal parts daunting and relieving,” says Keenan in a statement. “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 concert event also will feature a set by Failure, which is reuniting at Keenan’s request. “This was the perfect opportunity to tick off one of my bucket list items in the form of a Failure reunion,” notes Keenan. “What better birthday present could one ever hope for?” You may recall that Failure’s Troy Dean Van Leeuwen played guitar in A Perfect Circle from 1999 to 2003 before joining Queens of the Stone Age.
Tickets for the Cinquanta birthday bash will go on sale on Friday at 10 a.m. PT. For more info, including VIP packages, check out Cinquanta.frontgatetickets.com.
