The Flaming Lips won’t be performing at Hobart Arena during the upcoming Gentlemen of the Road tour.
Patrick Titterington, city service and safety director, mentioned this summer during a tour event planning update with Troy City Council that plans were being made for the group to perform Aug. 30 following a concert at Troy Memorial Stadium.
Tickets were not offered for sale and Titterington said on July 31 that the performance will not be held. The Aug. 31 performance by British folk rock band Mumford and Sons at the stadium will highlight the Gentlemen of the Road tour.
