The Flaming Lips are an American rock band formed in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and the pandemic has caused them to think outside the box for their latest concert, literally. Held at The Criterion in Oklahoma City, everyone in attendance, including the band members, were encased in inflatable human-sized bubbles. Fortunately (or unfortunately), this is just a temporary thing, and was also for a music video shoot. Read more for a video clip and additional information.
What most may not know is that these bubbles have been a part of the band’s shows, but this year, they decided to order 100 bubbles from China for this unique event. Guests arrived at The Criterion between 6:30 and 7 p.m. and they performed several tracks, including two from their latest album, “American Head”.
- Floating speaker above a magnetic base
- Orb can be used as a portable speaker
- USB port in the base for charging speaker orb or smart phone
- Emits a green light for visual aesthetic
- Connectivity via Bluetooth and NFC, Wireless Range 10 meters
I did a little drawing… where I drew a picture of The Flaming Lips doing a show in 2019. And I’m the only person in the space bubble, and everybody else is just normal. Then [I did another drawing with] The Flaming Lips playing a show in 2020. The exact same scenario, but I’m in a bubble, and so is everybody else,” said Wayne Coyne, The Flaming Lips lead singer.
