Concert Gallery: Flaming Lips at the BOA Pavilion in Boston, MA

Filed under Latest Photo Galleries

Let’s face it, when it comes to the live show, The Flaming Lips have set the bar, and set it high (enough to limbo under).  Their shows are a full on interactive experience feeding not only your ears but your mind and spirt. 

The confetti, balloons, costumes, and Wayne Coyne’s spaceball have all become a staple of the Oklahoma band’s show and while the music is far from secondary, it does seem to share the spotlight with the overall spectacle of their live show! 

For more proof, check out our gallery from their recent tour stop in Boston, MA at the Bank of America Pavilion.

Filed under Daily Music News

It’s that magical time of year!

What would Halloween be without The Flaming Lips?  Certainly nothing as magical and incendiary as their annual Ghouls Gone Wild event held in their hometown of Oklahoma City, that’s what.  As we fall into the crisp Autumnal night air of the season’s darkest yet sweetest holiday, THE FLAMING LIPS ask the question:   Want to Participate in This Year’s March 0f 1000 Flaming Skeletons?
 
This October 23rd, the band will once again host their annual March of 1000 Flaming Skeletons Parade in downtown Oklahoma City’s Bricktown district, just a stones throw away from Flaming Lips Alley.

Last year’s third annual Ghouls Gone Wild event was a huge success that drew fans from around the globe. Naturally, this year’s Supernatural procession will be even more elaborate as festive floats, (in)appropriately adorned cars, walking groups and plenty of surprises along with 1000 strong undead snaking through the streets of Oklahoma City.

Order your costume bundle for this year’s parade now in the official Flaming Lips store: www.flaminglips.com/store

 
Here are a few things you should know before purchasing your bundle:
  1. You can wear your costume from previous years and participate in the parade. If you choose this option you can purchase just the T-shirt and the torch for $20. All the same rules apply, you must be 18 and you can only use the torch that we provide.

  3. You may only purchase 2 costumes. Every costume must be for a person so we need a person’s name and e-mail address attached to each costume. You will receive an email from us if you order 2 so we can obtain the other person in your party’s name.
  4. Every skeleton will be carrying a torch with real fire. Anyone in the parade must be 18. Anyone in the parade must sign a waiver.
  5. You will be told at a later date when and where to be so be sure to enter a valid name, email, mailing address and phone number at checkout.
