The Flaming Lips, Gnarls Barkley Confirm California New Years Shows

"Artistic Ambition Has Become a Rare Commodity in Rock 'N' Roll... Not for Oklahoma City's FLAMING LIPS" -- Chicago Sun Times

BURBANK, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 10, 2006 -- THE FLAMING LIPS have teamed up with their friends GNARLS BARKLEY for a pair of year-end California shows that just may be the most memorable nights of the year. Possibly YOUR LIFE! More Confetti! More Blood! Danger Mouse & Cee-Lo! Laser-light retina burn! Potential partial nudity! What's not to like?

The Bay area show is confirmed for December 30th at the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, CA. Tickets are already on sale. The Los Angeles New Year's Eve show will be at the Galen Center on the campus of USC in downtown LA. Tickets for this event go on sale to the public this Sunday, November 12th.

The Lips are thrilled to share the stage with the universally loved GNARLS BARKLEY, this year's standout pop phenomenon whose debut album, "St. Elsewhere" has garnered tremendous acclaim. Wonder which band will be better dressed for the occasion... Look for the Deluxe CD/DVD package of "St. Elsewhere," released this week.

Available now: The Flaming Lips "AT WAR WITH THE MYSTICS 5.1 CD/DVD Special Edition" has just been released. It's loaded with tons of audio & video oddities, rarities and curios plus of course, their vertigo-inducing 5.1 "moving mix." It has been suggested that for best results, you may want to be seated (at home) during playback.

In other Lips news, the new maxi single, "It Overtakes Me" will be released digitally on Tuesday, November 14th. It's currently available on 7" and CD EP in the U.K.

Yes, it's true... we think: THE FLAMING LIPS are one of three Oklahoman artists who will (most likely) have a street named in their honor in their hometown. Other artists include Vince Gill and 1930s-era jazz great, Charlie Christian. The properties will be located in the Bricktown area of Oklahoma City, OK. We will confirm shortly.
