The Flaming Lips Add Melbourne Date

The Flaming Lips will sideshow away from Mono for a Melbourne date in January.

2016 will mark 30 years since the first album for The Flaming Lips. ‘Here It Is’ was released August 22, 1986. The band was so alternative that they didn’t even crack the Billboard Top 100 until their 10th album ‘Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots’ in 2002.

Even with a Top 40 single in ‘She Don’t Use Jelly’ in 1993, the ‘Transmissions From The Satellite Heart’ stalled at 108 on the Billboard chart. The single had its highest peak at no 25 in Australia.

The Flaming Lips defied all odds in 2009 when the ‘Embyonic’ album became the first Top 10 album for the band. Despite being a musical experiment it is to date their only hit album out of 15 studio albums.

The most recent album for The Flaming Lips was ‘With A Little Help From My Fwends’, a complete remake of The Beatles’ classic ‘Sgt Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band’ in 2014. It features appearances from Miley Cyrus, My Morning Jacket, Tegan & Sarah and Maynard James Keenan.

The Flaming Lips will perform at The Palais Theatre, Melbourne on January 8, 2016.
