Flaming Lips Do Soft Bulletin on NY Eve



Party like it’s 1999
all over again in OKC!


By Fred Mills


“Just so you guys know, we are going to perform The Soft Bulletin on
New Years Eve in OKC! Tickets will go on sale very soon.”


That’s the most recent tweet from
the Flaming Lips
, sent out yesterday to their 417,447 Twitter followers,
announcing the band’s plans for December 31 this year. So as usual, the place
to be if you are near Oklahoma City
as the New Year dawns is at the Lips’ home town.


What a novel idea – performing an
entire album from start to finish! Seems like the Lips are going to do
something similar next July 1 in London
for the “Don’t Look Back” All Tomorrow’s Parties series. Of course, to sweeten
the deal the band should do a SECOND set of Hear
It Is
in its entirety, following the reprisal of The Soft Bulletin…breaking out the old disco ball and bubble
machine to boot… now that would be a New Year’s Eve to remember.
