It had been previously reported that the band's New Year's Eve performance of the classic album would be the only time the Lips would perform it live, but Coyne says that was never the case. "We feared it could be because we thought, 'Well, if it's horrible we'll be glad we only did it once and it will grow in its infamy or whatever,'" he says. "But no, we considered if this record did in the end come out and people liked it and we were able to pull off this New Year's Eve thing, then we thought, 'Well, we could probably do that other places.'"
Coyne also believes that Bonnaroo creates the right setting to do Pink Floyd live. "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. We might as well just be jamming on some freak-out music," he says. "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. I'm sure people will be having their own party while we play this space rock or whatever. In that sense it's perfect for that."
Bonnaroo is set for June 10-13 in Manchester, Tenn. Tickets go on sale at Noon EST on Feb. 9th.
