Flaming Lips “Oczy Mlody” Tour Dates

The Flaming Lips are hitting the road in support of their new album Oczy Mlody. The tour begins January 21, 2017 – a week after the album drops – with the first of two consecutive nights at London’s 02 Brixton Academy, and continues through the rest of the month and into February visiting Germany, Denmark, Sweden, Holland, Italy, Switzerland, France and Belgium. North American dates follow in March 2017 and throughout the spring, beginning with mostly East Coast shows (Boston, Philadelphia, DC, New Haven, Manhattan, Toronto, Charlotte, Raleigh, Atlanta – though this leg extends as far midwest as Detroit, and as far South as Nashville and Florida). There’s a conspicuous gap in between the Northeast dates in early March and the concerts south of that later in the month – is this a clue the Lips make another surprise visit to SXSW? Stay tuned….

In advance of the tour the Lips will play a special hometown show at Oklahoma City’s The Criterion on December 16, 2016. This will mark their first performance in Oklahoma since headlining/hosting 2013’s “Rock for Oklahoma” tornado victims benefit, and their first full concert in the state since 2012’s legendary “Freak Night” at the Zoo Amphitheatre (streaming here). Frontman Wayne Coyne says they’ll debut their “new show” at The Criterion and there’s “gonna be some Christmas Songs played of course!!!” According to Lips drummer/multi-instrumentalist Matt Duckworth the band will be “trying out some new stuff” – presumably songs from Oczy Mlody. “Having their first show in Oklahoma City in years and in our first year, as a venue, is an incredible show for us, and one we have dreamed of since beginning the planning for The Criterion,” Levelland Productions chief operating officer Scott Marsh said in a statement, as reported by News OK. Watch the band rehearsing for the tour below, follow by the schedule.
