The Flaming Lips, Cornelius

The Flaming Lips, Cornelius - Dublin 1999

Transmissions: A Fortnight of New Digital Sound was staged at Dublin's Olympia from August 31 to September 12, 1999. Some amazing gigs were held as you can see from the flyers below. It was also the first time that an Irish audience got to see Wayne Coyne's fake blood, glove puppet and minature camera routine that became a feature of most Flaming Lips' gigs for the following couple of years. Cornelius supported the Flaming Lips and were mind-blowing. The video below is from a show in North Carolina also supporting the Flaming Lips about two weeks prior to the Dublin date.
