The Flaming Lips are set to return to Denver in 2019, for a special performance alongside the Colorado Symphony. For one night only, on Friday, February 22 at Boettcher Concert Hall, The Flaming Lips will again be teaming up with the Colorado Symphony, for a performance of their acclaimed 1999 album, The Soft Bulletin in its entirety. The special performance marks the second time the band has teamed up with the Colorado Symphony, the last time being at Red Rocks in 2016. Likewise, the forthcoming performance will precede the live album recording from the 2016 concert, set for release later this year.
Tony Pierce — Chief Artistic Officer of the Colorado Symphony — lauded the partnership.
“It’s a thrill for our musicians to be collaborating once again with legendary music innovators Wayne Coyne and The Flaming Lips. Fans from Colorado and around the world experienced an unforgettable performance at Red Rocks in 2016 and we’re delighted to welcome them to Boettcher Concert Hall in 2019 for what promises to be another incredible evening of music.”
That’s not all — The Colorado Symphony will also be making your galactic dreams a reality when they present the Colorado premiere of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back on March 23 and 24, at the 1stBank Center. The performances will feature the screening of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, and be accompanied by a live performance of the film’s Oscar-winning musical score. Earlier this year, The Colorado Symphony performed the live score of Star Wars: A New Hope alongside the original film at 1st bank Center as well.
