Flaming Lips perform at Wichita River Festival
The Flaming Lips are coming back to Wichita, and that leaves only one question.
Will there be more hamster-ball crowd surfing?
Popular alternative rock band The Flaming Lips will perform at 7 p.m. July 23 at Wave — part of the band’s summer tour — the venue announced Tuesday.
The Claypool Lennon Delirium will support, alongside Particle Kid.
They are $45 for general admission and $80 for VIP packages.
The Flaming Lips appeared as part of the Wichita Riverfest lineup in 2017, and thrilled the crowd when its lead singer surfed over it in a human-sized hamster ball. The band drew 18,000 at Riverfest.
Wave can hold 3,300 people max.
The Flaming Lips’ 15th studio album, “King’s Mouth: Music and Songs” is expected to be released on July 19, just a few days before the Wichita show.
The show is open to all ages.
