Animal drama at the band's show in Birmingham...

Flaming Lips had to halt their BIRMINGHAM ACADEMY show on Friday night (October 31) after a dancing panda collapsed onstage.

The girl in the suit passed out during ‘Lightning Strikes The Postman’.

In a posting on the band’s website [url=], the girl known as Livvi said: “I passed out because it was so hot in the suits plus I hadn’t been drinking much water. So really it was my own fault.”

She added: “I didn’t even know that I passed out and that I was carried up the stairs! But Wayne was lovely to me after the show so it made me very happy thank you thank you thank you!”

The band are currently winding up their UK tour, appearing at London’s Hammersmith Apollo tonight and tomorrow (November 3-4), Glasgow Academy (8) and Edinburgh’s Usher Hall (9).
