Dan Deacon to Tour With Miley Cyrus and The Flaming Lips
Mon, 19 Oct 2015 13:37:52
In an interplanetary colliding of surreal worlds, performance artist/mad genius/musician Dan Deacon has announced six dates with Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz (aka The Flaming Lips). The Baltimore-based Deacon, who's known to encourage his crowds to frenzied dance-offs and oftens leaves the stage to lead concert-goers on a pied piper-esque conga line to nowhere, is sure to bring his A game. In other words, he's a tough act to follow, and few, excepting the likes of Miley and the Lips, would ever willingly take up the challenge.
But it was Miley's camp that extended the offer (she perhaps became acquainted with Deacon after he remixed her song "We Can't Stop," in 2013).
"I felt like I was in the Phantom Tollbooth when the offer to open the Miley Cyrus and Her Dead Petz tour came in," Deacon says, "but I have a pretty weird life and tend to end up in really bizarre situations that I never in a million years would have pictured. I think it's safe to say without any doubt that the experience of touring with Miley and The Flaming Lips will be one of the most reality curving events of my career thus far. Mostly I'm really looking forward to introducing my music and performance to her fans and to watch this show unfold each night."
Deacon's latest album Gliss Riffer (Domino), is the latest in a prolific string of electronic experimental pop releases that range from offbeat, skittering electro-dance (2007's Spiderman of the Rings) to more contemplative synth-based arrangements (2012's America).
