The Flaming Lips Played An In-Person Concert Where Everybody Was In Bubbles

The Flaming Lips band performed in a plastic bubble on stage and in the crowd during the pandemic. Wayne Coyne explained how the idea came about after Stephen Colbert asked him if he wanted to do another concert from home. He added, “It was at the start of quarantine in March when we thought it would be over in one month.” Notably, the band only performed two songs and played each song twice: American Head tracks “Brother Eye” and “Assassins Of Youth”.

I was in a big venue where we set up 100 space bubbles for 300 audience members to be in while we play the show. He added, “We know what people do when they’re in the bubble… It’s how we get the crowd in and out without cross-contamination that we need to figure out.” Flaming Lips are known for their ability to do Space Bubbles and have ordered 100 inflatables to make them in China. The venue is also giving them weeks to work out logistics.

The Flaming Lips is a Warner Music artist. Uproxx is an independent subsidiary of Walt Disney Music Group. It was released in the United States on March 13, 2015. Warner has acquired the rights to produce and distribute music for over 50 countries worldwide.
