The Flaming Lips To Play 8 Shows In 24 Hours
So two days in a row we’ve got ourselves cool bands doing record breaking tours. The Flaming Lips today announced they’ve mapped out the itinerary of their attempt to break the Guinness World Record of most concerts in one day, 8.
They kick things off down south, in Memphis, Tennessee June 27th @ 7:30 ET and plan to end in New Orleans exactly 24 hours later. Between that they’ll hit 5 cities in Mississippi and one in Baton Rouge.
The Flaming Lips are always supported by cool folks. No exceptions here: Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Gary Clark Jr, Neon Indian and Grimes
Tickets are on sale June 7th… Reports are that all 24 hours will also be webcast live online as part of MTV’s O Music Awards. Seems odd, to webcast all 24 hours. That tape gonna be rolling on the tour bus? Man this band only get’s cooler. All the
