The Flaming Lips Perform Live Concert Inside Giant Bubbles to an Audience of People in Giant Bubbles

The Flaming Lips performed a rare live show at The Criterion Arena in Oklahoma City on October 14, 2020. While large gatherings are truly not advisable during this time of COVID, frontman Wayne Coyne and the rest of the band outfitted themselves in protective plastic bubbles, as did each member of the audience, thereby making it safe for all in attendance. Even while crowd surfing.

The band showcased their unique encasements in June 2020 on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.

Leave it to our wild and wonderful friends The Flaming Lips to solve the riddle of the socially-distant concert! Watch as they once again bring cutting-edge innovation to their Late Show appearance, performing their 1999 fan favorite “Race For The Prize,”

The band created a special t-shirt memorializing the tour, which is available through their online store.
