The Flaming Lips, who were scheduled to perform at the Memphis in May Music Fest have cancelled due to the hospitalization of guitarist Steven Drozd.
This will settle the dilemma of those who were pondering whether to see the Lips or Hall & Oates, who were scheduled to perform at the same time Saturday. But it's a big hit for the festival, since Wayne Coyne and crew were one of the weekend's major headliners and one of the bands that was sure to draw fans from out of the area.
The Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi Band will perform in the Lips' closing time slot on Saturday.
