Oklahoma City-based psychedelic rockers The Flaming Lips will play a free hometown show Oct. 26 at the Zoo Amphitheatre, the band and venue have announced.
The show, dubbed “Freak Night,” is touted as “the largest costume party in the Midwest.” New Fumes and Stardeath and White Dwarfs will share the bill with the Lips.
The venue announced on Twitter (
@ZooAmp) that it will be the last show of its 2012 season.
The concert also is billed as a farewell party for Innervisions and Facilities Management, the companies that have booked and operated the amphitheater for the past decade. In June, Oklahoma City Zoo trustees unanimously approved negotiating a contract with a new company, 3Horse Productions, to take over operations of the Zoo Amphitheatre.
The Lips famously put on quite the show for a capacity hometown crowd during a 2006 show at the Zoo Amphitheatre. The spectacle was capture in the concert film “U.F.O’s at the Zoo.”
