Congratulations to The Flaming Lips for breaking a world record (previously set by Jay-Z) for the most performances in different cities in a 24 hour period.

Lead singer Wayne Coyne was quoted as saying: “To be able to pick up this silly drinking book– after all, Guinness is a beer– this funny book that when I was growing up was a curiosity. To be published alongside the man who ate 22 pounds of his own boogers, beside the woman with the longest toenails or perhaps even to be published beside an individual who has had maybe 1000 cockroaches stuffed into their ears… that, to me, would be one of life’s absurd joys.”

Happy 50th Birthday, Wayne Coyne

Do you realize??  January 13, 2011 is Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips’ 50th birthday!  Happy birthday, Wayne.  It’s been over 6 months since I saw the Flaming Lips in concert for the first time and I am STILL not over it yet.  Not only was it the best show I saw of 2010, but it was one of the best shows I’ve ever seen in my entire life!  There was so much visual stimulation at the concert, at times, I lost track of where I was!  There was so much confetti that came down from the ceiling that I swear, every time I go to that venue, you still see residual confetti from that show.  In addition to great music and out of this world visuals, Wayne Coyne’s message was so great.  He talked so much about the realities of world peace if people can just get their acts together and start loving instead of hating!  Bravo, Wayne!  I cannot wait for the next time The Flaming Lips come to town, and take my word for it, you’re a FOOL if you miss them next time they come around.

"Is this all a dream or is it reality? It sure feels like a dream." - Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips

As I mentioned previously, The Flaming Lips show at Terminal 5 in New York is one of the best shows I’ve ever seen, and coming from me – that is saying a lot!  You owe it to yourself to catch them live when they come to your town!!  See more photos from this incredible night here.

The Flaming Lips

I’ve always heard that Oklahoma psychedelic rockers The Flaming Lips are great in concert, and on July 27, 2010 at Terminal 5 in New York, it was my first experience seeing them live.  Nobody told me the show would be life changing!  I am not sure I can even begin to describe how awesome their show was, but I’ll try.  As the finishing touches to the stage were being made, I could already tell we were in for a treat because the backdrop reminded me of a Pink Floyd-esque wall of lights.  Lead singer Wayne Coyne emerged inside a life size see through beach ball a’la Peter Gabriel’s “Growing Up” tour and he performed the first song on top of the audience!
