The Flaming Lips are headed west. The band has announced upcoming 2020 spring tour dates throughout the west coast, along with a few standalone shows in Ireland and the UK.
The tour will kick off on April 14th in Spokane. After moving to Missoula, the band will jump across the country and the pond over to England for one date. They’ll then return stateside in June to pick up their west coast run, wrapping up in Canada on June 21st in Vancouver, BC. The following month they’ll be performing in Ireland for the Galway International Arts Festival. You can find tickets to the upcoming shows here.
As they gear up for these dates, The Lips have been keeping all sorts of busy. They just recently debuted a track from their new collaborative project with Deap Vally dubbed Deap Lips. Besides the new supergroup, the band has been making the holiday rounds with contributions to Hanukkah+, and their own medley version of “Peace on Earth” and “Little Drummer Boy”. They also just recently announced their upcoming live album recorded with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, Soft Bulletin. Hopefully a few strings make their way into some of the 2020 tour shows.
