[UPDATED] The Flaming Lips Announce Space Bubble Concert In Oklahoma City
Dec 1, 2020 • 8:50 am PST
The Flaming Lips postponed their December Space Bubble Concerts in Oklahoma City due to a recent surge in COVID-19 cases. The postponed shows will now take place in January. Read the message from the band regarding the postponment below:
The Flaming Lips announced the first ever Space Bubble concert in their hometown of Oklahoma City. The show will take place on Friday, December 11 at The Criterion in OKC.
Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne has been rolling around audiences in giant plastic bubbles for years now. But the iconic production tool has taken on new meaning with the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic and now serves as an actual safety measure (read JamBase's recent interview with Wayne Coyne where he talks audience bubbles and more). Billed as a “very special, social-distanced, first-of-its-kind prophylactic event,” as per a press release, the concert will strictly adhere to local health and safety standards.
Tickets go on sale tomorrow, Friday, November 13 at 10 a.m. CT. Head here for ticket info.
To herald the announcement, The Flaming Lips also shared the video for “Brother Eye” from their 2020 album American Head where you can see the bubbles in action. Watch the video for “Brother Eye” below:
