The Flaming Lips fans were ahead of the curve when they first began performing in plastic bubbles, as they came out again for their latest performance.

Wanting to make sure they and their fans stuck to social distancing guidelines at their Oklahoma City event, the group and the audience were each encased in their own inflatable sphere at the venue.

As you can imagine this made things extra interesting, as the video shared on Instagram by Wayne Coyne showed.

From the looks of it it went off without a hitch (although we hope those bubbles were thoroughly cleaned out before and after) with the fans bouncing along together having a great time.

Meanwhile drummers Matt Duckworth and Nic Ley posted a snapshot on Instagram from the stage with the caption: ‘It’s really happening!’. Wayne commented with a string of red love heart emoji.

One attendee posted a photo from the event, adding that it was a music video shoot that also served as a ‘test run’ for their future shows.

Monday night’s show also saw audience members urged to wear face coverings and maintaining social distance when outside of their bubbles.

It’s not the first time the band have used inflatables bubbles in their performances, but we imagine they could be a permanent fixture going forward.

Chatting to Brooklyn Vegan earlier this month, Wayne said of the bubbles: ‘I mean, it seems absurd, but we at first were just doing it as not a joke, but just as a kind of funny thing, and now it’s becoming kind of serious and real.

‘I’m not suggesting the whole world should do it this way. I’m just saying the Flaming Lips can try it this way.’
