The Flaming Lips To Play The Soft Bulletin With Colorado Symphony At Red Rocks

No matter how you feel about Wayne Coyne’s latter-day antics, the fact remains that the Flaming Lips are responsible for several unfuckwithable classics, The Soft Bulletin (arguably) chief among them. The band have revisited their 1999 masterpiece a few times over the years — they performed the album in its entirety on New Year’s Eve 2010 in their Oklahoma City hometown, at Hollywood Forever Cemetery and London’s Alexandra Palace in 2011, and at Noise Pop in 2012 — and they’re doing it again this spring. On 5/26, the Lips will run through the whole LP at Colorado’s gorgeous open-air Red Rocks Amphitheatre, which really sounds like the perfect setting for this, accompanied by the Colorado Symphony and conductor André de Ridder.
