There have been so many new innovations because of the global pandemic that sometimes we find ourselves in complete awe. We have seen dating in the bubble to maintain social distancing, and now, a band and the fans encased themselves in plastic bubbles in a US concert. The rock musicians from Oklahoma City used human-sized inflatable bubbles to protect themselves and the fans against the virus while finding a way to play live. Footage from the concert shows people inside 100 inflatable orbs. The event happened to be a test run for future concerts amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The Bubble Experiment Was Born Out of A Doodle

Performing at The Criterion, The Flaming Lips placed themselves and their inside individual plastic spheres. Very interestingly, the concert was born out of a sketch doodled by Wayne Coyne during the early COVID days. At the time, the idea just a social commentary on the state of the virus. Nobody imagined the virus to linger long enough to see the bubble idea fully inflate. Nobody thought at the start of March that eight months later, this would come up as a full-fledged idea. This Dubai Café Lets You Dine Inside A Giant Air-Conditioned Bubble.

The Band Ordered 100 Bubbles From China

Only a couple of songs were played with about 30 people in the bubbles.  The “space bubbles” have been a part of The Flaming Lips stage shows for long. So, the band was familiar with a series of inflatable orbs. The band then ordered 100 bubbles from China, and this unique music event was ready to pop. Here’s How ‘Air Bubbles’ Will Help Indians Travel To International Destinations.
