Led by eccentric frontman, Wayne Coyne, The Flaming Lips formed in Oklahoma in 1983. Over the years they’ve released 16 studio albums. Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots is their tenth studio album, released on July 16, 2002. The album has received universal acclaim and became their first album to be certified gold. The final track, “Approaching Pavonis Mons by Balloon (Utopia Planitia)”, won a 2002 Grammy Award for Best Rock Instrumental Performance.
To date, the band has been nominated for six Grammy Awards, and won three times. In 2002, Q Magazine included them on their list of “50 Bands to See Before You Die.” In 2007, they were nominated for a BRIT Award for “Best International Act”.
The Flaming Lips last played KettleHouse Amphitheater in 2018 and the show was filled with plenty of extra theatrics and an array of props (photos). We’re looking forward to having them back and know a lot of fans will appreciate this concert landing on a Friday!
