ATP concerts are very excited to be able to present one of the greatest albums of the last 20 years live in it's entirety next July at London's stunning Alexandra Palace.
On the 1st July 2011 The Flaming Lips will perform their seminal classic The Soft Bulletin as part of ATP Concerts Don't Look Back season. On the album's release in 1999 it was hailed by critics as 'The Pet Sounds of the 90s', receiving adulation from fans and writers alike, topping many year end charts and spawning two classic singles ('Waiting For A Superman', 'Race For The Prize') and going on to influence countless bands. In 2003 Pitchfork placed the album as the third best album of the 1990s alongside Radiohead's OK Computer and My Bloody Valentine's Loveless.
For this special show they will be joined by two other stunning acts; Dinosaur Jr will perform their 1988 classic Bug. Bug was the bands third album with their original line-up and included the instant alt-rock classic 'Freak Scene'. Finally San Francisco's Deerhoof, one of the most acclaimed live acts around (fans include Radiohead, Beck and Blur all of whom they have been personally invited to support), will perform their 2004 album and fan favourite Milk Man.
Tickets for this unmissable show are on sale now, see below for full details and ticket link:
