Description

This October Melbourne International Arts Festival will bring the band to Arts Centre Melbourne for the momentous anniversary.

There are few acts as distinctive and idiosyncratic as The Flaming Lips, which is less of a rock band and more a perpetual motion machine flipping the finger to our expectations. But even in a 36-year career of constant self-reinvention, The Soft Bulletin stands out as a high point in musical innovation. Its groundbreaking use of sonic manipulation combined with lush orchestration and complex harmonies left critics comparing it to The Beach Boys pioneering Pet Sounds, but there’s little else that so successfully manages to combine radical experimentation with sheer earworm catchiness.

Led by charismatic frontman Wayne Coyne, the 20th year anniversary concert will see The Soft Bulletin performed live, and given the band’s penchant for performances as unexpected as their songs, we’re ready for anything.
