The 'World's First Space Bubble Concert' took place. People at the Flaming Lips concert were all in 100 giant bubbles called Zorbs. All band members were inside their own bubble. Some bubbles contained three people. The bubbles may let concerts go ahead during the pandemic. Every bubble has a speaker, a water bottle, a battery-operated fan, a towel and an "I gotta go pee" sign. Workers fill the bubble with cool air if it gets too hot.
Lead singer Wayne Coyne thought of the bubble concerts. He uses a Zorb to roll over the crowd at his concerts. He thought bubble concerts would be COVID-safe and "safer than going to the grocery store". He said: "It's a weird event, but the weirdness is so we can enjoy a concert before putting...everybody at risk." He added: "You see people excited...people really having fun....I think it's [the] 'new normal'....I think we're going to...work it out."
