The Operatives are proud to present the exclusive first appearance of the globally-renowned, mind-bending Flying Lotus 3D experience across Australia and New Zealand in January 2020.

No stranger to Aussie shores, the artist known by fans affectionately as FlyLo has toured his past five studio albums here — whether he’s holding secret Captain Murphy shows, getting the ‘shoe’ at Meredith, closing Laneway Festival, or blowing the curved-roof off the Sydney Opera House, FlyLo’s shows have always been epic, but this time — you can forget what you’ve seen or heard before — Flying Lotus 3D makes the extensive and first-of-it’s-kind stage show Layer 3 look simple.

His new cinematic experience will be teamed with his 2019 album, the fire-themed “Flamagra” as well as brain-melting favourites. The long-awaited follow up to his Grammy-nominated LP “You’re Dead” FlyLo’s latest album has a dream cast of collaborators, the perfect foil for his jazz-influenced, dizzying beats. In fact, no less than Anderson .Paak, George Clinton, Little Dragon, Tierra Whack, Denzel Curry, Shabazz Palaces, Toro y Moi, and of course, Thundercat appear. Even David Lynch pops up for some spooky spoken word. It’s an album loaded with jam sessions of electro-funk with hip-hop intuition, and created with the stage show in mind.

In his first AU/NZ tour since 2015, FlyLo fans be warned — Flying Lotus 3D is coming. Fire is coming.
