Groups team up for series of combined shows
Flaming Lips and Weezer have begun their co-headlining concerts around North America, kicking off with a show at the PNC Bank Arts Centre in New Jersey.
Coming on stage inside the Lips trademark bubbles, the bands took it in turns to play their own hits. Explaining the concept Wayne Coyne said:
“We hope it’s kind of confusing. You leave to go to the bathroom and Flaming Lips are playing and you come back and Weezer is playing.
Flaming Lips played, among others, ‘Do You Realize??’, ‘The Observer’ and ‘Is David Bowie Dying?’
A mass singalong of an encore ended the show with ‘Undone — The Sweater Song’ by Weezer before a team up for the Flaming Lips, ‘She Don’t Use Jelly’, which you can view below.
