The Flaming Lips are planning a stage show version of their album ‘Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots’, and have enlisted Des McAnuff, who created the stage show of The Who’s ‘Tommy’, to help.
Said frontman Wayne Coyne to Billboard: “It’ll be a big chunk of Flaming Lips music, probably about thirty songs. It’s a big deal. It’s hokey and wonderful and poignant and powerful. It’s really become a perfect combination of my fantastical robot-world vision and [Des's] little, internal, humanistic version of what that music is. I really believe it could work – and luckily I don’t have to do much!”
