The Flaming Lips add special guest, The Grates, to Brisbane show

Presented by Secret Sounds


Brisbane’s own indie rock royalty, The Grates, have been invited along for the ride, and will treat their hometown crowd to classics from their extensive and impressive catalogue of tunes including 19-20-20 and Turn Me On.

After reuniting their original line up—singer Patience Hodgson, guitarist John Patterson, and drummer Alana Skyring for a special run of shows last year, The Grates are ready to take center stage at Brisbane’s newest and most spectacular live music venue next month.

Twenty years on from the release of their iconic album, The Soft Bulletin, The Flaming Lips are returning to Brisbane for a special anniversary show at Fortitude Music Hall on Saturday 28 September. Led by charismatic frontman Wayne Coyne, The Flaming Lips 20th anniversary concert will see the band’s ninth and most celebrated album, The Soft Bulletin, performed live in full. Given their penchant for performances as unexpected as their songs, we’re ready for anything!


Saturday 28 September, 2019 - Fortitude Music Hall, Brisbane
