After announcing plans to attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most shows played in 24 hours, the Flaming Lips have outlined their master schedule for the big day. The band will perform eight different shows in eight different cities with various support acts.

Consequence of Sound reports that the Flaming Lips will spend their busiest day in America’s southern region, launching the tour June 27 in Memphis, Tenn. They will play five shows in Mississippi and one in Baton Rouge, La. before ending up in New Orleans, La. 24 hours after the first gig. Support acts include the likes of Grace Potter and the Nocturnals, Neon Indian, Grimes, and Gary Clark Jr. See the full itinerary below.

Tickets for each show go on sale June 7. Don’t feel left out if you’re not near any of the cities the Flaming Lips are coming to. The entire 24 hours will be streamed live during a webcast by MTV, who will make it a part of their O Music Awards.

In related news, frontman Wayne Coyne is in hot water with R&B singer Erykah Badu after he tweeted a nude photo of her and her sister. The pic was from the set of the music video for their collaboration on ‘The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face.’
