The Flaming Lips’ scheduled Bonnaroo performance of the entirety of Dark Side of the Moon with friends Stardeath and White Dwarfs will be the second time they perform the album live. The first was in the Lips’ native Oklahoma City, last New Years’ Eve at midnight. This second performance, aside from being completely awesome, is also a harbinger of good news: the Lips will release the performance on CD, available June 28.
The album was recorded last year before the band was even sure they would have the rights to release it. In December 2009, it hit digital download sites and limited edition LPs were released.
The covers on the CD were recorded with help from Henry Rollins, Peaches and Stardeath and White Dwarfs.
