The Flaming Lips have extended the Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots 2024 Tour, continuing to celebrate two decades of the band’s breakthrough 2002 album of the same name. Each night, the band will perform the project in its entirety, as well as other favorites from the band’s celebrated 41-year catalog. This update adds 15 shows to a tour that has endured since last spring and will now continue through the end of this summer.

After a previously announced week of Deep South dates that will run through Florida, South Carolina, Alabama and Louisiana from April 20 to April 26, The Flaming Lips will venture into the desert, for a May 17 show at Albuquerque, N.M.’s Revel. The following night, the band will headline the hotly anticipated Pure Imagination Festival in Prescott, Ariz., alongside Sylvan Esso, The Pharcyde and Tanya Tucker, capping off its first 2024 run.

The Flaming Lips will return on June 21 to bring the reinvigorated Yoshimi tour to The Buddy Holly Hall in Lubbock, Texas. Through the next week, the band will make five stops around the Midwest, including appearances at the Uptown Theater in Kansas City, Mo. and the Everwise Amphitheater in Indianapolis, before concluding its June series at GLC Live at 20 Monroe Grand Rapids, Mich. on June 29. 

The band will kick off the East Coast leg of its tour with a show at Greenfield Lake Amphitheater in Wilmington, N.C. on July 16. The following evening, the Flaming Lips will light up the summit of West Virginia’s Showshoe Mountain as it headlines 4848 Festival in the company of St. Paul & the Broken Bones and Greensky Bluegrass. Next, the band will veer north for a series of dates in Pittsburgh, Lewiston, N.Y. and LaFeyette, N.Y. on July 20, 22 and 23. After four months on the road, the pioneering indie outfit will wrap up its tour with engagements in New England, first at Thompson’s Point in Portland, Maine on July 25, and finally on the shore of Lake Champlain at Burlington, Vt.’s Waterfront Park on July 26.

The Flaming Lips released the 100-track 20th-anniversary edition of Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots in 2022. This reissue includes a sprawling collection of live versions and demo tracks beyond the original 11 entries. Upon its original release, the groundbreaking album marked a sonic shift for The Flaming Lips, as the group embraced electronic production even while staying true to its space rock and psychedelic roots. 

Tickets for the Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots 2024 Tour will go on sale on Friday, Feb. 23 at 10:00 a.m. local time. More ticketing information is available on Read on for the complete list of tour dates.
