I found this theme demo:
http://progressionstudios.com/themes-wp/?theme=Primero
It has a left and right sidebar column, I don't know if you can have both? Have you looked at the widgets page to see if you can add blocks of text to both sidebars at the same time?
Most paid themes offer sidebars on both sides.
On this page:
http://themeforest.net/item/primero-video-wordpress-theme/1468308
it says the theme comes with a detailed help file. Can you post it here?

Is this a fixed width theme? And can you adjust the width? The way your site is now, if you had sidebars on both sides, the main content area could be very narrow.

The Ultimate Checklist to Optimize Your Website

Websites are getting bigger and complicated by the day. Video, images, custom fonts are all great for showcasing your product/service. But the price to pay in terms of reduced page load times and ultimately, decreased sales, can lead to some difficult decisions about what to cut.

It says you can have both sidebars -
"Three Column (Example) - use this for any page you'd like the sidebar to be on the left and right."
But I don't think you can adjust the full width, there is nothing about that in the help file. Did you try to put widgets in both sidebars to see how it looks?
