Last month, the Flaming Lips performed their first socially distant live show in their hometown of Oklahoma City for an audience encapsulated in space bubbles. They have now announced two more gigs: They’ll take place March 12 and 13 at the Criterion in Oklahoma City. According to a press release, “local health and safety standards will be strictly observed for this full-production live Lips event.” Head to the venue’s website for tickets and more information.
Wayne Coyne has long performed in a space bubble during concerts. Prior to the live debut of their COVID-safe set-up, the Flaming Lips revealed their bubbled audience technique during a performance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert and in videos for “Brother Eye” and “Assassins of Youth” from their 2020 album American Head.
