The Flaming Lips are to take their cover album of Pink Floyd‘s ‘Dark Side Of The Moon’ on the road later this year, playing it at Bonnaroo Festival in Manchester, Tennessee.

The band initially released a cover LP of the album in December, and played it live in its entirety at thier New Year’s Eve show in Oklahoma.

Speaking to Spinner about the project, frontman Wayne Coyne said: “We did it at the New Year’s Eve show just knowing everybody’s gonna be taking acid, staying awake until five in the morning. I don’t think it’ll be that much of a stretch to think Friday night at 2:30 in the morning at Bonnaroo would be that much different than being in Oklahoma City on New Year’s Eve.”

Coyne did not add whether there were any other dates planned.

Bonnaroo takes place from June 10 -13.
