The Flaming Lips have postponed their upcoming New Year’s concerts at The Caverns venue in Tennessee due to surging COVID-19 cases driven by the Omicron variant.

The shows, which were originally scheduled for December 30 and 31, will now take place over President’s Day Weekend 2022 on February 19 and 20.

“It will still be a New Year’s celebration of epic proportions!” reads an Instagram post from The Caverns. “[Frontman] Wayne [Coyne] and the band feel strongly about ringing in the New Year with you!”

Previously purchased tickets will be honored for the rescheduled dates.

The Lips are the latest band with New Year’s plans affected by Omicron. Artists including The Strokes, Phish and My Morning Jacket have also postponed their scheduled NYE concerts.
