Front man and vocalist Wayne Coyne shares how he and his bandmates hope Elon Musk can help them become the first band to play on International Space Sessions.

The Flaming Lips first got together in 1983 and have since become a mainstay for their unique music and quirky acts, a stunt that made headlines earlier this year.

The band held a show in January 2021 during the coronavirus pandemic inside a plastic bubble.

Coyne said he would be ‘very grateful’ if Musk would actually use SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket to propel the group to the ISS.

While it’s a dream, Coyne also pointed out that the idea of ​​going to space is ‘a bit nerve-wracking’.

“I’m afraid it might actually be on another level, but yeah, I still have that dream,” Coyne said.
