Flaming Lips To Take On Jay-Z's World Record
The Flaming Lips will attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the most live shows in 24 hours in multiple cities. The record is currently held by Jay-Z, who in 2006 performed seven shows in seven cities in a day. The Lips will attempt the record on June 27 with eight concerts, which will stream live for the O Music Awards. In a press release, Flaming Lips singer Wayne Coyle said: "I don't remember if I was asked or if I volunteered... But, I've accepted the job of, not DRIVING, but commandeering the Magical Mystery Merry Prankster bus." He added: "I've accepted the attempt at breaking the world record of performing 8 shows in 24 hours. And I've explained to the music freaks at MTV, VH1 and CMT that I am not a host... But, I always liked the way Jerry Lewis would get all sweaty toward the end of his yearly telethon... To play and sing Flaming Lips songs at 8:00 in the morning... Well... I'm open to new experiences..." The band aren't the only ones bidding to break world records this week with Jack White claiming he would attempt to "break the world record for most metaphors in a single concert". Thanks for the report to NME.com.
