The Flaming Lips Host COVID-Distancing Concert in Oklahoma City

The Flaming Lips held a socially distanced concert in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, on Friday, January 22, with audience members encased in plastic bubbles.

Footage shared to Instagram user @robfromthebeach shows both the band and concert attendees in plastic spheres at the show, performed at The Criterion.

The concert was filled with 100 inflatable balls that each fit up to three people, according to The Criterion.

The band held a test run for the concerts in October after debuting the idea in a one-song performance for The Late Show With Stephen Colbert last June. Credit: robfromthebeach via Storyful
