One would have have to consider that a live band such as Skinny Puppy would not perform a one-off festival date in Europe unless they were signed as a top bill headliner. We can predict other 2017 European tour dates to follow for the US based Skinny Puppy.

Sonar 2017 takes place in Barcelona 11 days after Primavera, on June 15-17.
