The Flaming Lips have announced a tour of North America and the British Isles. The American Head Tour begins with a number of US dates in late 2021 before continuing with transatlantic shows through 2022. The dates, which you can see in full below, follow their shows in Oklahoma during the pandemic, where both the band and the audience stood in protective bubbles for the duration of the concert. Watch a CBS segment on the shows that aired yesterday morning.
The band also announced the first vinyl release of The Soft Bulletin Companion, a rarity promotional record that accompanied The Soft Bulletin in 1999. The release of a silver double LP is for Record Store Day on June 12th before a wider release later in the year.
Wayne Coyne and the band recently stepped out of their bubbles and played “Will You Return / When You Come Down” for Jimmy Kimmel Live!
