The Flaming Lips held a concert in Oklahoma City last night, where the band played to an audience trapped in the space bubbles frontman Wayne Coyne had long used as the show’s staple, Brooklyn Vegan reports. Coyne and the band were gushed for the performance too. At some point during the night he held up a series of massive balloons that read “Fuck You COVID-19”. You can find clips from the show below.
The Flaming Lips featured a bubbly performance of “Race for the Prize” in a video filmed for The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. You first brought this concept to the stage in October. Last night’s performance was originally scheduled for December but has been postponed due to coronavirus concerns. Each bubble can accommodate three people. The band will return to the Criterion tonight for yet another sold out gig behind their 2020 album American Head.
