The Flaming Lips Perform World’s First Bubble Concert

The Flaming Lips have officially performed the “World’s First Space Bubble Concert,” taking place at The Criterion in the group’s hometown of Oklahoma City.

The audience was safely split up into 100 different giant, inflatable hamster balls, while each band member had their own individual translucent sphere up on stage. The setlist consisted of 13 fan favorites, including “Yoshimi Battles the Pink Robots, Pt. 1”, “She Don’t Use Jelly”, “Race for the Prize”, and “Do You Realize??”. The gig also featured the live debut of “Flowers of Neptune 6”, off the group’s most recent album American Head, and a cover of the Daniel Johnston classic “True Love Will Find You in the End”.
