The Flaming Lips Member Hospitalized

Posted April 28, 2010, 2:16 p.m. in Bands by Jon E.

The Palm Beach Post reports that the Flaming Lips have pulled out of their slot at the Florida festival SunFest. A statement from the festival's organizers says that the Lips, scheduled to perform tomorrow night, have canceled because Lips multi-instrumentalist Steven Drozd has been hospitalized. We haven't yet received any word on Drozd's condition. According to the band's reps, they may also have to postpone some other shows.

UPDATE: The Lips' appearance at the Memphis in May festival on May 1 has also been canceled.



According to the Sun-Sentinel, a local radio station DJ named Smitty will replace the Flaming Lips on Thursday's bill. Sorry, SunFest attendees. Thanks to Derek Hannan for the tip.
