After announcing plans to attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most shows played in 24 hours, the Flaming Lips have outlined their master schedule for the big day. The band will perform eight different shows in eight different cities with various support acts.
Consequence of Sound reports that the Flaming Lips will spend their busiest day in America’s southern region, launching the tour June 27 in Memphis, Tenn. They will play five shows in Mississippi and one in Baton Rouge, La. before ending up in New Orleans, La. 24 hours after the first gig.
