Flaming Lips Announce Itinerary, Support Acts for Record Attempt


The Flaming Lips
The Flaming Lips today announced the first batch of diverse artists set to join them in their quest to break the Guinness World Records title for the Most Live Concerts In 24 Hours (Multiple Cities) during the O Music Awards, a digitally driven event that celebrates and honors the artists, fans and innovators impacting digital music culture.

Beginning June 27, the O Music Awards will play out across all our screens and linear networks in the form of the world's first 24-hour award show live stream via a historic and hectic bus ride through the Mississippi Delta, the birthplace of rock 'n' roll, in which The Flaming Lips will board a vintage tour bus named "Endeavor" and zigzag across the region in an attempt to break the world record currently held by Jay-Z.

Along the route and throughout the show, O Music Awards will feature a series of 8 concerts (one in each city) for fans to celebrate and cheer The Flaming Lips on as they attempt to break the record. At each O Music Awards concert, an eclectic mix of artists including Grace Potter and The Nocturnals, Gary Clark Jr., Hunter Hayes, GIVERS, Neon Indian, Grimes, New Fumes and others to be announced will play a full set before The Flaming Lips arrive on the bus to take the stage for a not-to-miss mini-set featuring many surprise collaborations and guests.

Tickets go on sale tomorrow and can be purchased through the individual venues listed here. Partial proceeds from the show will be donated to VH1's Save the Music Foundation. The entire show will be streamed live on OMusicAwards.com and accessible on all platforms including mobile and tablets.
