Flaming Lips coming to Jannus Live in St. Petersburg
The Flaming Lips have a strange history in Tampa Bay over the past decade.
They've played Jannus Landing/Live a couple of times to results that vary from mixed to ecstatic. They've headlined the Gasparilla Music Festival (introducing the phrase "F--- Yeah Tampa" in the process) and were set to headline a festival in St. Petersburg that later got canceled.
Now the Oklahoma psych-rockers are coming back, with a show on April 4 at Jannus Live. Tickets go on sale Oct. 28. Click here for details.
Wayne Coyne and his band of musical miscreants just announced a new album, Oczy Mlody, which drops Jan. 17. They've embarked on some strange musical directions over the years, but one thing's for sure: Their live shows are immersive spectacles not to be missed, with elaborate costumes, confetti, special effects and more. So this one should be fun.
