Watch: The Flaming Lips Guinness World Record Attempt Right Now!!!

Written by Marc Zanotti on June 28, 2012

The Flaming Lips have kicked off their world record attempt today. Having just played in Memphis & Clarksdale, The Lips are currently on enroute to Oxford to perform a couple of songs with Hour of the Time Majesty. You can stream the event live via the O Music Awards site right now!

As Music Feeds previously reported, Wayne Coyne and co are attempting to break Jay-Z’s world record of playing the greatest number of live performances over multiple cities within a 24-hour period. The current record is 7 different performances over 7 cities, which Jay-Z achieved via use of a plane.

The Flaming Lips have opted to travel via bus, and in association with the O Music Awards have an uncut, uninterrupted live stream running for the entire 24 hours as they attempt to play 8 different shows in 8 different cities. The final stop will feature Grimes and possibly special guests Ke$ha and Roger Daltrey.

As mentioned before, The Flaming Lips’ Guinness World Record attempt is currently underway and can be streamed live via the O Music Award site

You can also tweet The Flaming Lips as they travel between venues and ask the band any questions that you may have.
