Wayne Coyne's no stranger to bubbles. Aside from performing in them, The Flaming Lips frontman also got married in one! Last week, the band tested out playing a show where both the members and the audience were suited in inflatable space bubbles, while shooting a live video for "Assassins of Youth." On Wednesday (October 28), the Flaming Lips released those visuals and now we can all see what a bubbled concert looks like (spoiler: it's pretty crazy!).
Coyne, who also directed the video, described the experience in a statement. “Of course, our MAIN priority (when doing the performance for the music video) was making sure everyone was safe and all the health cautions were being enforced,” he said. “But there was a welcome side effect: I forgot about how exciting and fun and ridiculous it is to do a Flaming Lips show!!! I think the video shows it!!!”
The show was held at The Criterion in the Flaming Lips hometown of Oklahoma City, and according to a fan in attendance the venue was filled with 100 bubbles. Asides from “Assassins of Youth,” the band also played “Brother Eye” — both tracks are from their latest album, American Head.
