‘Do You Realize’ the Flaming Lips are coming to Fayetteville? Well, they are booked for a Nov. 4 gig on the UA Campus.
The lovable modern rock weirdos from Oklahoma called the Flaming Lips are headed to Fayetteville. And hopefully, they’ll bring their rolling hamster ball/crowd surfing device and elaborate stage show with them.
The group will visit Barnhill Arena on Nov. 4 (a Sunday) for a concert supported by the University of Arkansas Headliner Concerts Committee. Previous acts booked by the committee, which is supported through student fees, include John Mayer, The Roots, Foo Fighters, Kid Cudi and more.
Because it is supported by student fees, a limited number of free tickets will be distributed to students. An announcement about tickets will be made on Monday (Oct. 22) on the committee’s website.
Details on the public ticket sale portion of the event have yet to be announced, although typically the sale begins after student tickets have been given away.
We’ll update you as we have more information.
