Flaming Lips Map Out Fall Concert Dates

After spending much of the summer touring Britain and playing the European festival circuit, Flaming Lips have returned home to the States and plan to launch a fall U.S. tour on September 27 in Nashville.

The Oklahoma City-based group is still out touting its acclaimed 1999 effort, "The Soft Bulletin," which won a pair of Premier Awards from the U.K. rock magazine "New Musical Express" in February, including the "Album Of The Year" honor.

While the Flaming Lips have been abroad, a documentary short about the band's 17-year history, titled "The Flaming Lips Have Landed" and directed by Bradley Beesley, has continued to make the rounds at various American film festivals. The 29-minute film was screened at the Chicago Underground Film Festival in late August.
