Flaming Lips Hold ‘space Bubble’ Gigs to Get Covid Creative

The Flaming Lips are known for frontman Wayne Coyne zorbing in a large transparent ball over the crowd at their gigs. So with COVID-19 restrictions putting a halt to most live music since March 2020, the US rock band came up with an inspired way to pull off some unique socially distanced shows.

The band performed two shows in their home state of Oklahoma, with the crowd listening and dancing in “space bubbles”. Coyne shared a video on Instagram of his baby son, Bloom, watching from the balcony as fans enjoyed the music in their capsules.

The band were pictured holding “F*** you COVID-19” balloons on stage during the gig.

Before the first gig, camera operator Nathan Poppe shared a thread on Twitter explaining the logistics, saying the venue was filled with 100 bubbles containing up to three people each.

“There’s a fancy high frequency supplemental speaker inside each bubble as well as a water bottle, a fan, a towel and a ‘I gotta go pee/hot in here’ sign,” he wrote.
