King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard have taken their artistry to another level, after frontman Stu Mackenzie managed to crowd-surf from the stage to the ocean (AND THEN BACK AGAIN) during a recent show in the UK.
After first attempting a stage-to-sea crowd-surf at Italy’s Beaches Brew Festival earlier this month, Mackenzie decided to try it out at King Gizz’s Brighton headline show on Tuesday night, somehow making it to the beach and back as the rest of the band continued playing.
Here’s how Facebook user Daniel Stirrat described the momentous occasion:
“[Stu] talked about how they recently played a gig in Italy on the beach and how the crowd carried him from the stage to the sea, and then said, because it was so hot why don’t we carry him into the Brighton sea (the venue is on the seafront) as a sort of baptism, so we did, we carried him out the side door and into the sea and then came back to finish the gig (I assume the rest of the band were just jamming more stuff while we were gone).”
Check out a bunch of videos and photos from Stu’s inspiring stage-to-sea crowd-surf, below.
King Gizzard are currently preparing to release their new album Murder Of The Universe on Friday, 23rd June, before they return to Australia for Splendour In The Grass, Spilt Milk Festival and their own musical extravaganza, Gizzfest 2017.
