The Flaming Lips will deliver a series of special An Evening With concerts along the West Coast in 2023. Making stops in British Columbia, Nevada, and California, the concerts will see the psych-rock stalwarts dig deep into their massive catalog.
Beginning with a pair of shows at the Commodore Ballroom in Vancouver (2/28, 3/1), The Flaming Lips will return stateside for a show at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe in Stateline, NV (3/3). Following a performance at Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas (3/4), the band will finish out the run with a trio of California shows in Del Mar (3/6), Anaheim (3/7), and Santa Barbara (3/9).
Following the An Evening With shows, The Flaming Lips have a growing number of special Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots anniversary shows planned. In addition to a set at Shaky Knees Festival in Atlanta (5/7), the Wayne Coyne-fronted project will deliver full-album recreations of the landmark 2002 album in London (4/28), Chicago (5/5), and Washington, D.C. (5/25).
For the An Evening With concerts, The Flaming Lips have promised two-hour sets featuring rarities from throughout the band’s songbook in addition to beloved classics. Previous An Evening With concerts over the fall saw a cover of Madonna‘s “Borderline” come off the bench after 23 years, in addition to rare performances of “Sagittarius Silver Announcement”, “Enthusiasm for Life Defeats Existential Fear”, “Always There, In Our Hearts”, and more.
