New Years Eve With The Flaming Lips
What a great time. And quite a balloon drop, I'd say. Check out the photos.
If I have one quibble, it's the second set that featured 'Dark Side Of The Moon'- after the considerable downtime to re-configure the stage, the set started out promisingly enough, with Wayne out by the soundboard using his giant fake hands to shoot laserbeams into the mirror ball up above him while Steven accompanied him on keys. Then... more downtime as Wayne made his way back to the main stage. Was it because the hour was getting late, or the fact that there was a long break between each song? Hard to say, but half-way through the family packed up and departed into the new year's night air.
