The Flaming Lips announce UK and Ireland tour dates for 2022

The band's 'American Head' tour will stop off in London, Aylesbury, Leeds, Galway and more

The Flaming Lips have announced a string of UK and Ireland tour dates that will kick off in 2022 after a tour of North America.

The band took to social media earlier today (May 3) to announce they will be heading out on tour in support of their most recent album ‘American Head’.

The tour will begin with a series of US dates in late 2021, before proceeding into 2022 with shows in the UK and Ireland, starting in Leeds on May 25 and ending in Ireland on July 22, with a stop at London’s O2 Kentish Town in between.

The dates, which you can see in full below, follow the Oklahoma shows The Flaming Lips performed during the coronavirus pandemic, in which both the band and audience stood in protective bubbles for the concert’s duration.

The band has also announced the first ever vinyl release of ‘The Soft Bulletin Companion’, a promo record of rarities that accompanied their 1999 album ‘The Soft Bulletin’. Pressed onto a silver double-LP, it will be released exclusively on Record Store Day June 12, with a wider release slated for later in the year.
