On May 26, 2016, THE FLAMING LIPS performed their universally acclaimed 1999 Warner Records album The Soft Bulletin in its entirety with the Colorado Symphony at Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado. This particular event has been regarded by those in attendance as one of the most awe-inspiring, moving and magical moments of a lifetime. For the LIPS and their fans, perhaps the apex of a magnificent interpretation that will remain as rewarding and emotionally-charged as it was that night in 2016. Album pre-orders begin today and will include an instant download of “Race for the Prize” from the album. Additional instant grat downloads will follow on November 15th (“The Spark That Bled”).
This entire concert was produced by The Flaming Lips, Scott Booker and their long-time collaborator Dave Fridmann. The resulting live album is being released to celebrate the 20th anniversary of The Soft Bulletin, originally released in the summer of 1999. The album was the band’s breakthrough moment and featured the hit singles “Race for the Prize” and “Waitin’ for a Superman.” The album will be released in all formats as a double vinyl album, CD and digital.
