I saw the Flaming Lips live yesterday. Sheer genius.
They had all the usual props out of course: fake blood, interesting visuals, the nun finger puppet. Even the tellytubbies made an appearance. They also had giant balloons bouncing around the audience (just beautiful) and about 10 people on each side of the stage dancing throughout the entire gig in animal costumes. We even had Beth Orton pop up beforehand to join them playing their cover of “can’t get you out of my head”.
I was smiling all the way home.
