The Flaming Lips tour
Wed 18th Mar, 2009 in Local News
The last time they graced our shores with their fearless presence there was animal suits, fake blood and a man-sized plastic bubble. It has taken us five years to recover, but at long last The Flaming Lips are returning to Australia.
There is no easy way to describe a live show from Oklahoma’s psych-rock Gods, whose lead-singer Wayne Coyne mesmerises his audiences with a performance akin to an acid-fuelled, dancing Jesus. Their visceral live performances even led Q Music to declare The Flaming Lips one of their – œ50 Bands To See Before You Die’.
Since their last trip to our shores the band have released 2006’s resplendent At War With The Mystics and THE stoner movie of 2008, Christmas On Mars – a film which not only stared the band and their friends but which was written and directed entirely by Coyne. With a new album scheduled for release in June these Flaming Lips shows are simply not to be missed.
