Les Claypool recently announced that he's resurrected his group the Fearless Flying Frog Brigade for a tour of the US this spring and summer. And much like Primus covering Rush during their recent shows, the band will be performing Pink Floyd's 1977 proto-prog masterpiece, Animals, each night on tour.

Claypool said in a statement, "After a 20-year break, Les Claypool's Fearless Flying Frog Brigade is back and will be canvasing the USA this Spring & Summer on the Summer of Green Tour. The band will feature Sean Lennon on guitar, Harry Waters on keys, and Paolo Baldi on drums, along with longtime cohorts Skerik on saxophone, and Mike Dillon on percussion. Each night will include a full performance of Pink Floyd's iconic album, Animals."

In 2020, Claypool reissued the 2001 album Live Frogs as Live Frogs: Set 1 & 2, which also includes a full performance of Animals recorded October 8–9 of 2000 shows at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco. You can listen to the reissue below.
