The Flaming Lips tour of 2010 is starting to be unveiled with Stardeath and White Dwarfs in the opening slot, as well as appearances at festivals like Bonnaroo and the Central Park SummerStage.

We can expect a large-scale tour in 2010, although the band is revamping their patented approach to the live show spectacle that they've become known for. They want to move forward with some new elements, while keeping some of the staples of the old.

“It’s kind of redone in the way a city is redone. There’s some great old structures you never want to tear down, and you take chances next to it and you build a new futuristic museum. I would never want people to think that if you saw us three years ago, what we’re doing now has nothing to do with that,” said Wayne Coyne when speaking to LA Times.

He's pretty sure that the Flaming Lips crowd is up for the new approach.

“I think our audience would forgive us for going out in the further regions of whatever we could think of,” Coyne says. “But I don’t think we’d be worthy of being forgiven if we didn’t do that. They’re giving us the freedom, the encouragement, the money and the time to say, ‘Go somewhere where no other band could go, and come back and tell us what it was like.’”
