Why See The Flaming Lips?
The Weird and the Wonderful
Psychedelic provocateurs The Flaming Lips are no strangers to the weird and wonderful. With their astral soundscapes peppered with whimsy and humour to their Merry Prankster-esque on stage antics, the band have become a cult favourite since the release of their first studio album in the 1980s. Following a stint as Miley Cyrcus collaborators on her 2015 album Miley Cyrus & Her dead Petz, the band returned with latest record Oczy Mlody, which features the trippy and rather lovely 'The Castle'.
Described by Rolling Stone as having "a voice that evokes Neil Young on nitrous oxide," singer Wayne Coyne takes the moniker of front man to an entirely new level. During large festival shows, he makes an entrance by descending from an alien mother ship in a bubble and floats across the audience as he performs. The concerts also feature lasers, projected screens, balloons and confetti cannons.
Performance date: 6 October 2018
