The Flaming Lips, an American psychedelic rock band, is looking to SpaceX CEO Elon Musk to help them perform at a venue that’s out of this world – the International Space Station (ISS).

Speaking with Audacy, front man and singer Wayne Coyne shared how he and his bandmates hope Musk could make this dream come true, even if he has to ‘invite his girlfriend Grimes along for the ride,’ Coyne said.

‘I think he’s cool and I think he’s got big ideas that are actually working,’ Coyne said about the billionaire. 

‘We’ve always said that we want to be the first band to play on the International Space Station, and I feel like to even say that on your show, he might be listening.’

The Flaming Lips first got together in 1983 and has since become a mainstay for their unique music and outlandish acts, with one stunt making headlines earlier this year.

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

However, what was even more spectacular was that each audience member received their own bubble upon entry.

The Space Bubble show is no match for the concert that could be held on the ISS – if Musk would be willing to lend a hand, or a rocket.
